The assumption for the Final Fantasy VII remake has long since been that the game will be a PlayStation 4 exclusive. However, Xbox Germany may have disproved that early today.
The German Xbox Facebook page posted a video of the remake, with a caption announcing that the game would be available for Xbox One on March 3, 2020, the same day we’re supposed to get it on the PlayStation 4.
The post was quickly deleted (though it has been screenshot) and Xbox Germany quickly issued an apology. Xbox Germany’s communications and social lead Maxi Graff tweeted, “Hey. We did an internal mistake in the Social Team… Sorry, no announcement on our side. Big apologies for this.”
Hey. We did an internal mistake in the Social Team. We took the video off immediately. Sorry, no announcement on our side. Big apologies for this.

It will be interesting to see how this proceeds: whether we get a quick denial from Sony or not or from other Xbox branches could say a lot. Then again, it isn’t too unusual for game companies to make mock-up videos just for fun.
We’ll have to wait and see on this one, but hopefully we won’t have to wait very long.
