The highly anticipated Final Fantasy VII Remake, penned in for a March 3, 2020 release, will be a timed exclusive for the PlayStation 4, according to new box art spotted by Twitter user @Wario64.

A disclaimer in the bottom-right corner of said box art has the upcoming title’s PS4 exclusivity ending a year after its release, on March 3, 2021. This, for the uninitiated, means that the game is likely to find its way to other platforms eventually, though to what platforms exactly is unknown.

Developer Square Enix too is yet to confirm if PC, Xbox One, or Nintendo Switch variants of the game are in the works, but in a fumble back in July, Xbox Germany posted a trailer for the remake to Facebook, taking it down moments later. Xbox DACH Social Lead Maxi Gräff later apologized for the gaffe, confirming that it was an accident.

The smart money is on the game making its way to Microsoft’s console at the very least, though given the popularity of the original, it only makes sense for the title to have a version on every major platform. It’s unclear how the game’s episodic release will tie into its exclusivity, however. It’s possible the studio plans to have all episodes of the game out by the end of its time as a PS4 exclusive, releasing a complete version of the game on rival platforms.

FF7 Remake is available to pre-order on PS4 today.
