Square Enix announced Final Fantasy 6 Pixel Remaster will no longer release before the end of 2021. Instead, the game will release in February 2022.
According to the announcement on Twitter, the delay will give the development team more time to polish the title. To smooth things over, Square Enix will add new items for those who pre-purchased the game or the Final Fantasy Pixel Remaster bundle.
Here’s the full announcement:
In order to bring you the best experience possible, we’re allowing the necessary time to apply final polish while finishing development on the game.
We will be adding new items for those that pre-purchase the game individually, or have purchased the pixel remaster bundle on Steam.
We’re looking forward to sharing the final title in our pixel remaster series with you all early next year and we’re hoping you’re looking forward to it.
The list of free goodies isn’t long – expect some extra songs and wallpapers. That said, at least they’re free and don’t require additional purchase.
Final Fantasy 6 Pixel Remaster is the last of Square Enix’s six Pixel Remaster titles. Customers criticized the first three titles in the series for the litany of bugs. These include screen tearing and issues with external controllers.
Customers are also upset the games aren’t available on consoles. The Pixel Remaster titles are only available on PC, Android, and iOS. The same will go for the upcoming Final Fantasy 6 Pixel Remaster.
The Pixel Remaster series is Square Enix’s latest attempt to remaster the original six Final Fantasy titles. The first two titles cost $11.99 each, while Final Fantasy 3 through 5 cost $17.99 each.
