It appears that Final Fantasy 7 Remake and Alan Wake Remastered will be coming to Epic Games Store. As we can clearly see, these two games can be found in Epic Games Store’s database, suggesting that both of them are coming to PC.
This does not really surprise us as both Square Enix and Remedy have released games on Epic Games Store. For instance, the Kingdom Hearts series is currently available exclusively on EGS. Similarly, Remedy’s CONTROL came out first on Epic’s platform.
For what it’s worth, the Final Fantasy 7 Remake entry was created in 2020, whereas the Alan Wake Remastered entry was created in 2019. What’s also interesting is that Remedy and Square Enix last updated these entries this June.
Square Enix has not officially announced yet any PC version of Final Fantasy VII Remake. However, and over the past couple of years, we’ve seen numerous hints. In 2019, Square Enix and Sony hinted at a timed-exclusive deal regarding Final Fantasy VII Remake. Then, in January 2020, the Final Fantasy 7 Remake demo leaked some PC code. And then, in April 2020, the official Final Fantasy VII Remake trailer included some PC gameplay footage.
On the other hand, a rumor suggests that Remedy is working on the sequel to Alan Wake. If that’s actually happening, a remaster of the first Alan Wake sounds plausible. And, since CONTROL was a Ray Tracing showcase, this remaster may feature some RT effects.
Below you can find some images from the entries of both Alan Wake Remastered and Final Fantasy 7 Remake.
