Final Fantasy 7: Rebirth was noticeably absent from the January State of Play, but that's because Sony is dedicating another full State of Play to it next week.

If you were confused about the fact that Final Fantasy 7: Rebirth didn’t make a single appearance during the January 2024 PlayStation State of Play, there’s a good reason. Right at the end of this week’s State of Play, Sony teased that there’s another one coming next week. More importantly, the next State of Play will focus entirely on Final Fantasy 7: Rebirth, giving the game ample time in the spotlight ahead of its release.

PlayStation shared the details about the upcoming Final Fantasy 7: Rebirth State of Play on this week’s January 2024 State of Play. Right at the end of the State of Play, Sony revealed that another State of Play was coming on February 6, 2024. Moreover, that State of Play will focus entirely on Final Fantasy 7: Rebirth, and the developers have teased that there will be news during the presentation that fans “don’t want to miss.”

We’re not far away from the actual release of Final Fantasy 7: Rebirth, set to arrive at the end of February. With that game, we’ll escape the confines of Midgar and take Cloud and his party out into the world, including the events of Junon, Gold Saucer, meeting Cait Sith, and much more. Previously, we’ve gotten to talk to the devs about rebuilding Junon, the Mt. Nibel section, and much more, but it seems Square Enix is keeping something special in the bag for next week.

With the next State of Play planned and plenty of Final Fantasy 7: Rebirth reveals to come, stay tuned here at Shacknews as we look forward to the next presentation next week.
