Square Enix’s Final Fantasy 7 Remake has hit a new sales milestone. The publisher revealed on Twitter that it passed five million in worldwide shipments and digital sales. As a result, the remake is now the highest selling digital release on the PlayStation platform in the company’s history with two million digital sales.
That’s no small feat, especially considering that it passed 3.5 million in worldwide shipments and digital sales in April. It’s not quite near the level of Final Fantasy 15, which had five million digital sales and worldwide shipments in the first 24 hours of launch. But that was available on Xbox One and PS4 while Final Fantasy 7 Remake remains exclusive to the latter (at least, until April 2021).
It’s also good news for the future of the remake which will have several more parts with the team looking to clarify its sequel policy in the future. Given how things panned out in Final Fantasy 7 Remake, it should be interesting to see how the story develops in subsequent parts. Stay tuned for more details in the meantime.
We’d like to share a Midgar-sized THANK YOU to everyone who has supported #FinalFantasy VII Remake.
