For the record, Final Fantasy VII Remake must also cope with the coronavirus. “With the unpredictable changes in the distribution landscape that can vary from one territory to another, it is likely that some of you may not be able to buy the game day one, has explained Square Enix a few days ago. We want to keep you informed up to the release of Final Fantasy VII Remake. Also, we will post a new tweet on Friday 20 march to give you the news.”
In short, the containment could be a little more painful for some.
