There was little doubt that Final Fantasy VII Remake would be a premier PlayStation title, but it’s now clear just how long everyone else have to wait to play it. Deal-finder Wario64 has discovered box art that the reborn RPG be a PlayStation exclusive until March 3rd, 2021 — a year after its planned release date. Xbox and PC fans will just have to settle for older (or really, newer) Final Fantasy titles until that point, although the timing suggests VII Remake for other platforms more a matter of “when” rather than “if.”

It’s not surprising that Square Enix would agree to an exclusive. Sony determined to snap up exclusives as a general rule, but Final Fantasy VII practically synonymous with the original PlayStation — this is a chance to recreate those glory days, even if it’s very late in the PS4’s lifecycle. Still, those who hoped that the role-playing series would stay platform-independent are bound to be disappointed.
