Final Fantasy VII Remake will be released for the PlayStation 4 on April 10.

Today, Crystal Dynamics revealed that Marvel's Avengers will be delayed by four months, while Square Enix announced that the Final Fantasy VII Remake's PS4 release date is delayed by a month (though the game isn't yet confirmed for PC, it seems likely after its year of PS4 exclusivity ends).

The most recent bit of news to surface concerning Final Fantasy VII was a leak, which made the rounds due to a reported demo datamine. Originally set to hit stores on May 10th, Marvel's Avengers will now arrive on September 4th.

In a statement, Final Fantasy 7 Remake producer, Yoshinori Kitase, explained that the delay was to allow the developer more time to polish the highly-anticipated remake. Allegedly, the information features spoiler-filled details about the difference in plot between the upcoming remake and the title's original release. "Thank you for your patience and continued support", he continued. "In order to achieve that goal, we have made the hard decision to move the release date of Marvel's Avengers to September 4, 2020", co-heads of developer Crystal Dynamics Scott Amos and Scott Rosenberg said in a statement.

"At Crystal Dynamics our ambition has always been to deliver the ultimate Avengers gaming experience". The extra nearly month of time will be used to polish the game so it is in a better place when it launches. We apologize for the delay. "We're confident it'll be worth the wait".
