Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth PC version might release within months of the PS5 version

A new Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth trailer includes the most jacked horse you’ve ever seen, Cloud riding a Segway, and the PlayStation 5 release date: February 29, 2024.

We’ve been assuming that Rebirth, the second part of Square Enix’s FF7 remake trilogy, will come to PC around a year after the two-disc PS5 version releases. That’s what happened with the first part, which released on the Epic Games Store in December 2021 as Final Fantasy 7 Remake Intergrade, a few months after the PS5 version and over a year-and-a-half after the PS4 version. But wait, there’s a little asterisk at the end of the new Rebirth trailer:

As you can see in the image above, Square Enix sneaked in a note which says: “Not available on other formats at least until 05.29.2024.” That doesn’t mean that the PC version of Rebirth will definitely release at the end of May 2024, but it feels reasonable to take the note as a hint that we should expect it around then. That’d be closer to the gap between FF7 Remake’s PS5 and PC versions, so it makes some sense, but it’s much faster than the usual year-long exclusivity window. We’ll hold off on celebrating until a real PC date is confirmed.
