Phil Spencer Remains Tight-Lipped On Whether Final Fantasy 7 Remake Will Come To Xbox

Xbox boss Phil Spencer has been speaking to IGN today as part of a new interview at Gamescom 2023, where he was questioned about Xbox's new relationship with Square Enix and whether Final Fantasy 7 Remake will come to Xbox.

As you might expect, Spencer refrained from commenting on Final Fantasy 7 Remake specifically, noting that there are "business deals and relationships what will have to get worked through". He instead used the time to praise Square Enix for making such a public commitment to Xbox at the Final Fantasy XIV Fan Festival in late July.

"I recognise that when people buy an Xbox, they want to make sure that the great games they want to play are coming. And if there's any publisher out there where that hasn't been true, Square [Enix] is one of the top [examples]."

"We've spent a lot of time with Square — there's obviously business deals and relationships that will have to get worked through on certain games — but I'll say it was really great to have the CEO of Square and [Final Fantasy 14 producer Naoki Yoshida] there to just talk about their commitment to Xbox..."

"So, you'll hear more. I'm not going to push them, they're going to have to find their own rhythm, but having them make a commitment to Xbox was really important, both to me and I've heard it from the community as well."

Of course, it's now been over three years since Final Fantasy 7 Remake debuted on PlayStation, and we still haven't seen any sign of it on Xbox. With Final Fantasy 14 finally coming to Xbox in the near future though, it seems more likely than ever that FF7 Remake could eventually find its way to Microsoft's range of consoles.

We'll have to wait and see what comes of the partnership with Square Enix over the coming weeks, months and years, but here's hoping Phil can work his magic and bring Final Fantasy 7 Remake to Xbox in the not too distant future.
