If you think a 50 GB game is large, you'd better rethink it: Final Fantasy VII remake to exceed 100 GB
When it comes to size, there are a few titles for Sony's PlayStation console that put 50 GB titles to shame: Destiny 2 can use up to 165 GB on a PlayStation 4, while popular shooter Call of Duty: Modern Warfare has 57 GB after install, but can go up to almost 108 GB or more with 4K textures installed (over 137 GB on Xbox). These being said, the remake of Final Fantasy VII no longer seems that large with 100 GB+, right?
Originally set for a March 3 release, the remake of Final Fantasy VII has been delayed to April 10. The main reason for this is to offer the team working on it "a few extra weeks to apply final polish to the game and to deliver you with the best possible experience."
This upcoming title will include a Battle Report system, various main and side quests, and will only be available on the PlayStation 4 for an entire year. Other versions will probably arrive after April 2021, but we have no information about them yet.
The original Final Fantasy VII game was released at the end of January 1997 for the PlayStation console and a PC version arrived at the end of June, 1998. As of 2019, the game sold over 12 million units worldwide. It is also worth mentioning that the game sold no less than 2 million units in Japan within three days of its release. Will the remake be able to live up to the success of the original title? This is something that we will probably find out by the end of the first quarter, but feel free to share your forecasts in the comments section below.
