In other Final Fantasy news, the remake of VII, known as Final Fantasy VII Remake, is approaching the end of its PlayStation exclusivity. As previously reported by TCN, the beloved remake of what is arguably the series’ most iconic title launched exclusively on the PlayStation 4 on April 10th, 2020. While it remains to be seen whether or not the Xbox One, the PlayStation 4’s closest competitor, will receive the title in the coming year, dataminers have found PC code in the game’s coding, hinting at the possibility of a PC port in the coming months. Given the swathe of titles rolling out on Xbox Game Pass in the coming year, we at TCN are keeping our ears to the ground for any news of a potential Xbox port.
