Final Fantasy 7 Remake Part 2 release: Is FFVII Remake Part 1 coming to Xbox One first?

It looks like Xbox One gamers will get to catch up with their PS4 counterparts before Final Fantasy 7 Remake Part 2 is released. For now, the PlayStation platform remains the only place you can play the first instalment in Square Enix’s ambitious reimagining of the 1996 classic. Set within Midgar, the development team has decided on an episodic launch for Final Fantasy 7 Remake on all platforms.

But having endured a very long wait for the first part of the revamped story, gamers are now wondering when the Final Fantasy 7 Remake Part 2 release date will arrive, and also, when will Xbox One gamers get access to the new reimagined FF7 package?


From what has been shared so far on the subject, Square Enix has not provided an official release date for FF7 Remake on Xbox One and PC.

However, it has been confirmed when the game will stop being a timed exclusive on PS4, which is the next best thing.

Physical packaging for the game confirms that this period will end on April 10, 2021, at least in some regions.

This doesn’t guarantee that it will be available to play on that exact date, but it does give a pretty good idea of when things might start happening.

So it will definitely be worth it for Xbox One and PC gamers to keep an eye out for news in the coming months from Square Enix.


While we know that the first part of the episodic journey is a timed PS4 exclusive, we don’t know if the same deal is in place for the others.

There is a chance that all compatible platforms will get access to Final Fantasy 7 Remake Part 2 on the same day.

However, what does seem certain is that Part 1 will become playable on Xbox One and PC before FF7 Remake Part 2 arrives.

While Part 2 is unlikely to take the years it took for FF7 Remake to arrive, it probably won’t be popping up within less than a year of the first launch.

Fans have been given hope that the wait for Part 2 won’t be as long as the wait in-between the FF7R announcement and its actual launch.

The Final Fantasy 7 Remake was announced back at E3 2015 with the Remake launching just under five years after that.

And fans have been teased that development on the next instalment should be more “efficient”.

The comments were made by FF7R producer Yoshinori Kitase last June who at the time said planning for Part 2 was already taking place.

Kitase-san said: “While the development team finish the first game in the project, we are continuing to plan and outline the overall volume of content for the second.

“Due to the work already done on the first game we anticipate development of the second game to be more efficient.

“We have our own internal schedule and plan, but for now we’d like to focus our information on the first game in the project.”

While in November Final Fantasy 7 Remake director Tetsuya Nomura confirmed that development on Part 2 had already begun.

Nomura-san said: “We’ve already begun working on the next one as well, but I’m confident that playing through this title will expand your expectations just like the world that extends beyond Midgar.”

With such an unusual project being worked on by Square Enix, it will be interesting to see how long it takes for the Final Fantasy 7 Part 2 release date to be announced.
