The highly anticipated Final Fantasy 7 Remake and its enhanced version, Final Fantasy 7 Remake Intergrade, have collectively sold over seven million copies, according to an announcement made by Square Enix.

Confirmation From Square Enix
Square Enix expressed their gratitude to the fans for their unwavering support on the official Final Fantasy VII Twitter account, stating, “Seven’s the magic number. Thank you all for taking the journey with us.” The company’s post highlighted the milestone reached by the latest installment in the series.
Final Fantasy 7 Remake initially launched on the PlayStation 4 in April 2020, garnering widespread acclaim. Its success prompted Square Enix to release an enhanced version titled Final Fantasy 7 Remake Intergrade, which launched on the PlayStation 5 in June 2021 and later on PC in December 2021. However, the game has yet to be released on the Xbox platform, leaving fans eagerly awaiting its arrival.
‘s review of Final Fantasy 7 Remake awarded it a commendable 8/10 rating, stating, “Final Fantasy 7 Remake’s dull filler and convoluted additions can cause it to stumble, but it still breathes exciting new life into a classic while standing as a great RPG all its own.” This positive feedback from critics and players alike further contributes to the game’s success.
Comparing Sales Figures
When comparing Final Fantasy 7 Remake’s sales figures to other recent releases in the long-running series, the game’s impressive achievement becomes even more apparent. For example, Final Fantasy 16, a PlayStation 5 exclusive, sold three million copies during its launch week in June. However, Square Enix has not yet provided an updated sales figure for that particular game, leaving Final Fantasy 7 Remake at the forefront in terms of commercial success.
A Legacy of Success
It is worth noting that Final Fantasy 15, released on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in November 2016, sold a remarkable five million units on its first day alone, making it the fastest-selling game in the history of the series. As of May 2022, Final Fantasy 15 had reached an impressive total of 10 million units sold worldwide, solidifying its position as one of the best-selling games in the franchise.
A Trilogy of Remakes
Final Fantasy 7 Remake is just the first game in an ambitious trilogy of remakes. Its success has paved the way for the upcoming Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth, scheduled for release on February 29, 2024. Square Enix shared a wealth of information about the highly anticipated sequel during Sony’s State of Play broadcast. Notable details include the game’s extensive 100 hours of content and precise storytelling, revealing where in the original story the remake will culminate.
