Final Fantasy 7 Remake: physical copies may be delayed in delivery as ‘non-essential items’

Square Enix has an update on physical copies of Final Fantasy 7 Remake and it is not entirely positive. While digital copies of the game won’t be delayed, the company has already said physical copies may not make it to the launch date. The cause lies in the pandemic from Coronavirus (COVID-19) as these items are not of primary importance to some retailers.

However, there was also something positive about this message. Square Enix talked about the problem of physical copies of Final Fantasy 7 Remake ordered from their store, such as the exclusive 1st Class Edition, which could still arrive by the set date. Here is an excerpt from the company’s statement.

“As we prepare for the release of Final Fantasy 7 Remake, we wanted to keep you updated on how proactive measures taken to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus could affect the distribution and retail landscape in western regions at launch. As you know, many countries are restricting entry or closure of their national and state borders, restricting the distribution and delivery of non-essential items. Understandably, these restrictions have been implemented so that essential items can reach their destination as quickly as possible. ” .

“That doesn’t mean physical copies of Final Fantasy 7 Remake won’t ship, it just means we can’t control the game’s arrival date. In many countries and states, retail stores are closing to help with social distancing measures. . If you have placed a pre-order with one of these resellers, we recommend that you check their websites for the latest information on pre-order status, as well as pickup and / or delivery information. “

Barring mishaps on the part of retailers then, Final Fantasy 7 Remake will arrive exclusively on PlayStation 4 on April 10.
