It looks like your PS4 hard drives are going to get a bit of a workout as it appears the file size for Final Fantasy VII Remake has all but been confirmed. Get ready for the game to take up over 100GB and, as previously confirmed, for Final Fantasy VII Remake to span two discs. The information of the file size comes from Twitter user Nitomatta who appears to have their hands on the Japanese sleeve of the game.

In this day and age such file sizes are becoming the norm. Red Dead Redemption 2 weighed in at 99GB on PS4 and 107GB on Xbox One when it launched, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare basically devours the hard drive taking up over 170GB, and Destiny 2 is not far behind with all of the additional content including Shadowkeep pushing the game over 160GB. As we get closer to a new generation expect these file sizes to increase as developers use more assets for titles. They can only do so much compression.
Miguel had some time with Final Fantasy VII Remake and wrote:
It’s still hard to believe, but this game really is coming. Whether we get one disc or three, the content is bound to be worthwhile if this brief demo was any indication. The decision to shift form turn-based action to something more real time will remain contentious for devout fans, but it’s inventive and rewarding. Square observed the flaws of their action combat from Final Fantasy XV, and improved on every part of it.
Recently, the opening movie for Final Fantasy VII Remake was released by Square Enix. Final Fantasy VII Remake will be released on April 10th after the decision was made to delay the title from its March 3rd release date as a bit more time was needed by the development team.
