What Platforms is Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth Releasing On?

Currently, Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth is set to release exclusively on the PlayStation 5. Surprisingly, it’s not even planned for the last generation’s console, the PS4. However, there’s speculation that FFVII Rebirth’s exclusivity might be limited, potentially leading to an earlier release on PC. As for Xbox players, prospects of a port appear slim, especially considering that Final Fantasy 7 Remake still hasn’t made its way to Xbox consoles.

An Evolved Battle System

Beyond the Walls of Fate

In this standalone adventure for fans and newcomers, Cloud and his comrades venture across the planet, their fates unwritten, making each step outside the dystopian city of Midgar fresh and mysterious.

FINAL FANTASY VII REBIRTH is the highly anticipated new story in the FINAL FANTASY VII remake project, a reimagining of the iconic original game into three standalone titles by its original creators.
