Have you been itching to play Final Fantasy VII Remake but don’t own a PlayStation console? Or maybe you’ve been dying to play a remastered version of Alan Wake after playing Control? Whichever of those scenarios you fall under, you may be in luck. Both of those games might be coming to the Epic Games Store.
According to a recent leak, both Final Fantasy VII Remake and Alan Wake Remastered may be on its way to Epic’s digital storefront. The leaks hail from EpicData, a website dedicated to tracking Epic Games Store updates. Alan Wake is under the code name “HeronStaging” while Final Fantasy VII Remake is filed under “Pineapple.” While disguised under these names, you can find the titles under “customAttributes” and then “CloudSaveFolder.”
Like most leaks, these projects may not actually exist at this point. The Alan Wake Remastered entry was made in 2019, while the Final Fantasy VII Remake one was made in 2020. Both entries were updated this year though, so there is still hope for both of these titles to come to the Epic Games Store sometime in the future.
A Final Fantasy VII Remake PC port release date has not yet been determined as PlayStation still holds exclusivity rights for another six months as the PS5 version has recently launched, as evidenced by the end of the above trailer. If that is the case, the earliest we will see the game come to PCs is December of this year.
Alan Wake Remastered also has not been formally revealed. However, with the success of Control, the recent Alan Wake-themed DLC, and Remedy growing shared universe, it isn’t too much of a jump for the developer to give new players a way to experience the 11-year-old game.
If you just can’t wait for the PC version of Final Fantasy VII Remake, you can play it right now on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5. As mentioned, Alan Wake has been around for years, and you can play that game right now on PC and Xbox 360 as well as Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S via backwards compatibility.
