Square Enix CEO Yosuke Matsuda told Game Informer that Final Fantasy VII Remake will be playable on the next-generation of PlayStation consoles.
I believe that our teams have made it so that the game will support both the next generation and the current generation of consoles. I believe it is being developed so that it is going to be playable on both, so I’m not really concerned about that. I believe that the fans are also going to be able to enjoy it on both, including the next-generation of consoles.
He did not state whether the game will be running on the system natively or whether it will be running via backward compatibility. The game has so far only been confirmed for PS4 by retailers.
The game releases on March 3, 2020 and will span two blu-rays. Square Enix is also offering a $330 collector’s edition through its online store.
