The Summer Game Fest 2023 closed with an impressive preview of Final Fantasy VII Rebirth that left many with their mouths open. Since this project was revealed, it was announced that it would be exclusive to PlayStation 5, but new information confused some and made them think that it will also come to PlayStation 4, but will it be so?
Let’s go by parts, why do some people think that Final Fantasy VII Rebirth will come to PlayStation 4? It’s all because the PS4 logo appears next to the PS4 logo on the page dedicated to Final Fantasy VII Rebirth on the official Final Fantasy VII site.
Due to the above, it is possible that many believe that Square Enix is confirming Final Fantasy VII Rebirth for PlayStation 4, but the reality is different. Both in the advance and in the JRPG statement, only PlayStation 5 is mentioned as the platform on which it will be available.

To this we must add that since last year the development team made it clear that Final Fantasy VII Rebirth will be exclusive to PlayStation 5 to take advantage of the capabilities of the new hardware and exploit them. So you shouldn’t expect to see it on PlayStation 4.
“It is exclusive to PlayStation 5 due to the graphic quality, of course, as well as the speed of access to the SSD. Since the adventure takes place in a vast world after the escape from Midgar, loading stress is an extreme bottleneck. We felt we needed the PlayStation 5 specs to overcome that and comfortably travel the world,” explained Yoshinori Kitase, producer of Final Fantasy VII Rebirth.
So why the hell did the PlayStation 4 logo appear on a site? We have 2 theories. The first is that it was a mistake. The other is that it is referring to Final Fantasy VII Remake being available for PlayStation 4.
