What is Final Fantasy VII Rebirth? Release date, platforms, gameplay details, and more!

It's time for reunion.

Closing out the Final Fantasy VII 25th Anniversary Event was a trailer that no one expected to see this soon. Final Fantasy VII Rebirth is coming, and each time a new trailer is revealed I get more excited. Here's everything we know about the highly anticipated sequel to one of the last generation's best games.

Everything we know about FFVII Rebirth

Final Fantasy VII Rebirth is the direct sequel to Final Fantasy VII Remake, which was released in 2020. While not a direct remake of the 1997 juggernaut, Remake is a retelling of the beloved story. This reimagining also takes some unexpected twists that set the stage beautifully for Rebirth. Cloud and company have made their way out of Midgar and are hot on the heels of Sephiroth. Along the way, they'll encounter new allies and many more enemies. Will they be able to stop Sephiroth and his reunion? Will Aerith be spared her fate? What of Zack? We have so many questions!

What is the release date for FFVII Rebirth?

Final Fantasy VII Rebirth is coming on February 29, 2023, and will be on two discs. We believe it'll match the Final Fantasy VII Remake with a release window of April 2024. It'll be great if it was earlier! You can follow the official Square Enix Twitter for more updates.
