Final Fantasy 7 Remake Pre-Orders In the U.S. Could Get Cancelled, Warns Square Enix
The recent delay of Final Fantasy 7 Remake from March 3rd to April 10th means that Square Enix Store pre-orders of the game made by U.S. purchasers are in danger of getting cancelled, Square Enix warned on Friday.
“Due to the release date change to April 10th, you must opt-in by February 28 for your order to not be cancelled,” Square Enix’s statement read. “To confirm your order please check for an email from Square Enix on this topic, and then click the link in the email to be taken to a web page to opt-in.”
“If you do not opt in to keep your pre-order by February 28, your pre-order will be automatically cancelled,” the statement further explained. “We will not be able to reinstate your pre-order, based on limited quantities available.”
Payment processing for the pre-orders will begin on February 28th and a reminder email asking about the payment method will be sent on February 20th. If the payment processing is successful then buyers should receive an email that confirms that their pre-order has been secured. Additionally, according to Square Enix, if the first payment processing doesn’t work then subsequent attempts will be made in the ensuing weeks.
