Final Fantasy VII Remake has done very well.
Developer and publisher Square Enix has announced that Final Fantasy VII Remake has sold and shipped over five million copies since its release earlier this year. The game did especially well digitally, as Square Enix revealed that it is the highest selling digital game on the PlayStation platform ever.
"We're excited to announce a major milestone for Final Fantasy VII Remake - more than five million copies of the game have been sold or shipped to date," Square Enix stated on their official website. "Digital sales were particularly strong - in fact, it's our highest selling digital game on the PlayStation platform ever.
"That's a big number, and what is there to say about it other than... thank you!
"This game really is a labor of love, and everyone on the Final Fantasy VII Remake team deeply appreciate the millions of players who have chosen to step into the mean streets of Midgar and embark on this iconic adventure."
Square Enix went on to announce that Final Fantasy VII Remake is 34% off on the PlayStation Store. The sale will last until August 19th.
Last month it was announced that the second episode of Final Fantasy VII Remake is in full production. In the Japanese gaming magazine Famitsu, director Tetsuya Nomura stated that the team behind the game is trying to get the episode out as soon as possible, and that they will clearly convey the game's direction when they announce it's next installment. The interview went on to discuss other aspects of the game, such as the fact that the AVALANCHE hideout was not added in order to show that Cloud had not developed a close relationship with the group at that point.
Final Fantasy VII Remake is available now for the PlayStation 4, and will release on other platforms next year.
