Final Fantasy 7 Remake release date has been delayed until April 10, Square Enix announced Tuesday.

"We know that so many of you are looking forward to the release of Final Fantasy VII Remake and have been waiting patiently to experience what we have been working on," said producer Yoshinori Kitase in a statement. "We are making this tough decision in order to give ourselves a few extra weeks to apply final polish to the game and to deliver you with the best possible experience."

Final Fantasy 7 Remake was most recently scheduled for a March 3 release date, but the game has been in development since at least 2015.

"I, on behalf of the whole team, want to apologize to everyone, as I know this means waiting for the just a little bit longer," Kitase said.

The delay arrives within weeks of a leaked demo that appeared to reveal several details of the upcoming game, including information about the as-yet unannounced sequel. Square Enix had not since released an official demo.
