Final Fantasy VII Rebirth: a painful announcement

Square Enix launched a month and a half ago now Final Fantasy VII RebirthFollowing Final Fantasy VII Remake and second part of a trilogy revisiting the cult PlayStation role-playing game. While the Japanese studio had rightly boasted by announcing 3.5 million copies sold for FF7 Remake a week after its launch, Square Enix remains silent regarding sales of this second part.

Analyst Daniel Ahmad, however, said X (ex-Twitter) that Final Fantasy VII Rebirth is “underperforming in sales”then specifying that the figures are half as good as those of FF7 Remake over the same period of time. This is undoubtedly why Square Enix has not commented for the moment, even if he should mention the sales of FF7 Rebirth during its next financial statement.

It’s also good to note that the two games are releasing in very different contexts. Final Fantasy VII Remake launched during the international lockdown in 2020 on PlayStation 4 (110 million consoles sold at the time), while its sequel only landed on PS5 (54.8 million consoles sold) in the midst of a financial crisis, where dropping €79.99 for a video game is a decision that is not taken lightly for households. The price has already dropped, you can buy Final Fantasy VII Rebirth from €49.99 on Amazon, Cdiscount And Fnac.
