In total, more than 7 million copies of the game were sold around the world which was one of the records of the 20th century. Back in 2000, its remake version was intended by the Square but for some reasons, they couldn't keep working on the project. Later in 2005 they again started to complete this project but again they gave up because of unknown reasons.

Final Fantasy 7 Remake Release Date

When actually this anticipated game will be available to play? This question is killing the cat. People are already curious about its release date, most of them want to make pre-bookings so that they no further delay can come in their way but it all depends on when Square Enix is going to make it happen. The saddest part is the company has not yet given any official date for its release, most of the platforms are guessing at their own but Square Enix has not said a word about it. But it is being believed that it will be out in 2019 most probably but still you can't say which month of 2019 it will be.

Square Enix is also working on other two big projects i.e. Kingdom Hearts 3 and Parasite Eve which could be a reason why Final Fantasy VII is being delayed. Or it might be possible that they want to keep the hype going so that people anticipate it more. But guys relax, this time it won't be just a rumor remaking is already under development it is all about how long it will take.
