Microsoft confirms Final Fantasy 7 Remake post was a mistake, not a tease

Xbox Apologizes for Error in Father’s Day Post Featuring Final Fantasy 7 Remake

Xbox has issued an apology after a Father’s Day post on its Brazilian social media account incorrectly included Final Fantasy 7 Remake, a title that is not available on Xbox consoles. The post, which showcased celebrated dads in gaming from various Xbox titles, included Barrett from Final Fantasy 7 Remake before swiftly being deleted.

This led fans to speculate that the inclusion of the game may have been a hint of its arrival on Xbox consoles. However, Xbox has confirmed to Eurogamer that the post was made in error. “The image was posted in error and removed as it included a title not available on Xbox,” said a Microsoft spokesperson.

While the incident was a mistake, the possibility of Final Fantasy 7 Remake coming to Xbox consoles in the future is not out of the question. Although few games from the series are currently playable on Xbox, it was recently announced at the Final Fantasy 14 Fan Fest in Vegas that Final Fantasy 14 will be making its way to Xbox consoles next year. Xbox boss Phil Spencer and Square Enix CEO Takashi Kiryu made the announcement, with Kiryu teasing the arrival of other games to the platform, although specific details remain unknown.
