Get ready for the highly anticipated release of Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth as Square Enix urges fans to save the date – the first Tuesday of February. With the launch just around the corner, this exciting announcement from Square Enix is sure to make fans mark their calendars.

At the end of the January 31 State of Play broadcast, Sony confirmed that Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth fans would have to wait until February 6 for more news about the anticipated title. However, Sony stated that this would be when another State of Play presentation dedicated solely to Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth would be released.

During the State of Play showcase, various looks at upcoming titles such as Rise of the Ronin and Stellar Blade were among the presentation's key points. In addition, a remaster of 2011's Sonic Generations, called Sonic x Shadow Generations, was confirmed to launch on PS5 in the fall. The presentation closed with an extended segment dedicated to Kojima Productions' upcoming sequel, Death Stranding 2: On the Beach, which was scheduled to be a 2025 release. While initial rumors about the State of Play episode stated that Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth would be part of the show, the broadcast went over 40 minutes without any mention of Square Enix's upcoming game.

However, following the Death Stranding 2 segment, Sony's director of third-party relations, Shawne Benson, closed the State of Play by giving fans of Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth a reason to get excited. A second State of Play focusing exclusively on Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth will air on Tuesday, February 6, at 6:30 p.m. Eastern. While the length of the upcoming presentation remained unknown at the time of writing, the next broadcast will focus on the gameplay elements of Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth at the very least. While it remains to be seen how much of Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth's new storylines will be covered during the presentation, the State of Play will take place just over three weeks before the game's February 29 launch.

When is the Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth State of Play?

Picking up immediately where Final Fantasy 7 Remake left off, the main story of Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth will span the rest of the original game's first disc and conclude at the Forgotten Capital. However, the launch of Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth will be just the first of three major events coming to the Final Fantasy franchise in 2024, all of which will be featured on the PS5. Square Enix will also release Final Fantasy 16's second DLC, The Rising Tide, in the spring, and the highly-anticipated Final Fantasy 14: Dawntrail expansion is expected to launch this summer.
