By Heidi Nicholas,
Square Enix recently shared a message which addressed the "unforeseeable changes in the distribution and retail landscape" due to COVID-19. Now, they reassure fans that the release of the FINAL FANTASY VII Remake will go ahead as planned.

Their first update, released a few days ago, commented on the "extraordinary circumstances the world is facing with the COVID-19 pandemic". Square Enix emphasised that the safety of the fans was paramount, and that they'd been following recommendations from the World Health Organisation. This first update said that although the game's release would go ahead as planned, it was likely that some fans wouldn't be able to get a copy of it on launch day, due to the "unforeseeable changes in the distribution and retail landscape" caused by the outbreak.

Square Enix promised more information, which they've just delivered. Again, they acknowledge that the "distribution and retail landscape" in Europe, Australia and the Americas is likely to be affected, but that the release of the Final Fantasy VII Remake is still planned for April 10th.
