The official Xbox Germany social media team sent Final Fantasy fans into a bit of a frenzy yesterday when a post on the Xbox Germany Facebook page showed footage from the Final Fantasy VII Remake video game, a title that’s only officially been announced for release on Sony’s PlayStation 4 console.
The post was quickly deleted, however, and Xbox Germany’s marketing communications and social lead, Maxi Gräff, has since tweeted out that the entire thing was one big misunderstanding.
“We did an internal mistake in the Social Team. We took the video off immediately. Sorry, no announcement on our side. Big apologies for this,” she said in a tweet.
In a separate tweet, she also explained exactly what happened and what led to the confusion. “It actually happened yes,” she explains. “In that video were multiple FF games and the remake happened to be in there by mistake from the editorial team where we didn´t check the exclusivity on the specific one. We make sure this doesn´t happen again.”
Still, the game is highly anticipated by many who would love to play it on Xbox One so this retraction of what was initially thought to be an announcement or reveal will definitely feel like salt in a wound to those wanting the news to be real.
