Final Fantasy 7 Remake Will Be Playable On PS5, Square Enix Confirms

They didn't specify whether this will have any upscale visual when playing on PS5, or would it play like a PS4-PRO game running on PS5?

Final Fantasy 7 Remake Will Be Playable On PS5, Square Enix Confirms

The Final Fantasy VII remake is one of the biggest games at E3 2019, and now we know it's coming to the two highly anticipated next-generation consoles. Publisher Square Enix has all but confirmed the game will be playable on PlayStation 5.

"I believe that our teams have made it so that the game will support both the next generation and the current generation of consoles," the company's president and CEO, Yosuke Matsuda, told Game Informer. "I believe it is being developed so that it is going to be playable on both, so I'm not really concerned about that and I believe that the fans are also going to be able to enjoy it on both, including the next-generation of consoles."

Matsuda did not confirm, however, whether this will be achieved via backward compatibility--which will be a part of both PS5 and the new Xbox console, Scarlett--or if the game will be released on those consoles. In previous generations, games have come to, for example, both PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 as developers attempt to maximize sales and simultaneously take advantage of the new hardware's power. GameSpot has contacted Square Enix for clarification.

Final Fantasy 7 has so far only been confirmed for PS4. We got a much closer look at the game during Square Enix's E3 2019 press conference, with an extended trailer as well as an extended gameplay and combat demonstration. Square Enix also revealed the game will span two Blu-ray discs when it launches on PS4, and the publisher will offer an extravagant $330 collector's edition through its online store. The highly anticipated game will finally launch worldwide on March 3, 2020.

PS5 is backwards compatible with PS4 so... who knows? I think from power alone the performance will be better.

I'm hoping that games can (if the developer chose to plan ahead) be played on PS4, PS4 Pro (with performance upgrades), and PS5 (with even more performance upgrades). That would be great for the first slew of games.

And yeah, it would hurt first year sales of the PS5, I guess. But it would be way more consumer friendly.

Games I'm hyped for
The Last of Us Part 2, RE2 Remake, The Last Night

Current Platforms:
PC (i7-7700K, 16GB, GTX 980Ti), Wii U, PS4

yah, do it like GBC at the time, just enhancements if played on it and then later bring out PS5 only games, when it requires the hardware.
