Square Enix’s Final Fantasy VII Remake is coming later this year to the PS4. Much of its technical side was under wraps, but fans were aware it would be releasing on two Blu-Ray discs. Guess what? It all seems true. According to a Reddit thread via Push Square, the Korean cover of the game showed that it will need at least 100GB of available storage space to install.
Final Fantasy VII Remake Isn’t the First Large Game
It isn’t shocking that Final Fantasy VII Remake was going to be a big game, the level of detail in the cutscenes and gameplay that fans have seen says it all. This also sheds some light on why they’re splitting the game up into different parts.

If it were the full game, it’d probably be more than double the known file size and simply put, that would make it the largest file size for any game. Games have been a similar size before, however. You can look to the likes of Call of Duty: Black Ops III, which clocks in at 113GB, Red Dead Redemption 2 which is 150GB, along with Destiny 2: Shadowkeep which is 165GB, among a slew of others.
Moral of the story, you better look over your system space and make room. Final Fantasy VII Remake is releasing to store shelves on April 10, 2020.
