Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth: Mark Feb 6 on Your CalendarFinal Fantasy 7 Rebirth: Mark Feb 6 on Your Calendar

With Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth fast approaching, Square Enix asks fans to mark the first Tuesday of February on the calendar.

At the end of the January 31st State of Play broadcast, Sony confirmed that fans of Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth will have to wait until February 6th for more news on the anticipated title. However, Sony said that this will be when another State of Play presentation dedicated entirely to Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth will be released.

During the State of Play showcase, various highlights on upcoming titles such as Rise of the Ronin and Stellar Blade were among the highlights of the presentation. In addition, a remaster of 2011’s Sonic Generations, called Sonic x Shadow Generations, is confirmed to launch on PS5 in the fall. The presentation closed with an extended segment dedicated to Kojima Productions’ upcoming sequel, Death Stranding 2: On the Beach, slated for release in 2025. While the State of Play episode was initially rumored to be part of the Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth show, the broadcast went 40 minutes without any mention of Square Enix’s upcoming game.

However, after the Death Stranding 2 segment, Sony’s Director of Third Party Relations, Shawne Benson, closed the State of Play by giving Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth fans a reason to be excited. A second State of Play episode focusing exclusively on Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth will air on Tuesday, February 6 at 6:30 p.m. Eastern While the length of the upcoming presentation remains unknown at the time of writing, the next broadcast will focus minimally on the gameplay elements of Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth. While it remains to be seen how much of Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth’s new stories will be included during the presentation, State of Play will take place just three weeks before the game’s February 29th launch.

What is the current state of play for Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth?

Picking up where Final Fantasy 7 Remake left off, Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth’s main story will span the remainder of the original game’s first disc, culminating in the Forgotten Capital. However, Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth’s launch in 2024 will only be the first of three major events coming to the Final Fantasy franchise, all of which will be featured on the PS5. Square Enix is expected to release Final Fantasy 16’s second DLC in the spring, The Rising Tide, and the highly anticipated Final Fantasy 14: Dawntrail expansion this summer.

With Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth getting a dedicated State of Play episode on February 6, Square Enix’s latest entry solidifies itself as one of the most anticipated video game releases of 2024. Only time will tell what Square Enix will show in the upcoming State of Play.
