Final Fantasy 7 Remake is not an Epic Games exclusive! Here is the page that proves it

Released only on December 16, 2021, the PC version of Final Fantasy 7 Remake will not be destined to remain an Epic Games Store exclusive. The release of the Square Enix home game on Tim Sweeney's client took many by surprise, considering how the Japanese publisher and developer has practically never signed similar contracts, at least on PC. And even in this case the situation would seem to be confirmed.

As reported on Reddit, in fact, the datamine of Final Fantasy 7 Remake for PC has discovered that a version is already ready for Steam. The compilation error hypothesis is however denied by the appearance of the game's Steam page, for now not yet public but already present on SteamDB. Having ascertained the existence of this version, there are now two more important issues to resolve, which obviously will take some time.

The first big question is certainly that of the release date. Final Fantasy 7 Remake is already an old game: the release on PC in fact follows the one that took place in 2020 and 2021, with the basic version and the Intergrade version that followed one another between PS4 and PS5. Obviously, none of us can know what the terms of the agreement between Epic Games and Square Enix are, but according to many rumors on the Internet the idea is that the exclusivity agreement can end within a year. The release of the game on Steam would therefore be expected, at best, towards the end of 2022. The other problem to be solved concerns the price.

I can confirm that #FinalFantasy VII Remake is planned to release on Steam after Epic Games exclusive contract end.

The game AppID used for devtest is 1462040.

The app have been created in October 2020, 6 months after release on PS4.

We already know that Square Enix has decided to adopt a rather controversial pricing policy, with releases costing 79.99 euros on Steam and Epic Games. Despite community criticism, the PC version of Final Fantasy 7 Remake was the best-selling on Tim Sweeney's client, but we can't know how much the public would reward this choice if it was released on Steam more than a year after the PC release. In short, there are still many doubts that it will be impossible to resolve in the short term.

At the moment, therefore, it is better (as always in these cases) to wait for official news from Square Enix. We will update you in case of further updates or official announcements from the Japanese publisher and developer, so keep following for all the news and announcements in the pipeline.
