Final Fantasy VII Remake and Avengers Delayed

Final Fantasy VII Remake and Avengers are going to need more time according to their respective development teams. Square Enix has thrown their hat into the ring of countless major game delays over the past year. On Tuesday, the long-time game publisher Tweeted out individual links to statements made by the development teams of these highly anticipated games, both of which expressed an apologetic tone and a desire for more time to make these games the best they can be.



According to Crystal Dynamics’ studio heads, Scot Amos and Ron Rosenberg, the Avengers team “will spend this additional development time focusing on fine tuning and polishing the game to the high standards our fans expect and deserve.” The game, originally scheduled for a May 15 release, will now hit shelves on September 4. Needless to say, the studio is under very scrutinous eyes. Marvel’s Avengers has become one of the most valuable, well-known, and beloved franchises of all time. Many weren’t impressed with the trailers we got in 2019, and while the extra three months likely won’t be enough to fix any potential core issues, it could certainly make the game more playable overall, and according to Amos and Rosenberg, “it will be worth the wait.”


Final Fantasy VII Remake received a relatively short delay from March 3 to April 10. Yoshinori Kitase, the producer of the game, says these extra weeks will be good for applying “final polish”. As someone who has already experienced the game in the form of a demo at PAX West 2019, I can safely say that the game will be worth waiting an extra month for. I have no way of knowing what “polish” they’re applying in just a month, but whatever it is, I’m sure it’s relatively minor and for the sole purpose of making the experience slightly more well-rounded.


And with that, this culture of game delays continues in full force. Which game will be next?
