In order to apologize for the 'mistake'...
After the early and accidental re-release of Final Fantasy VII for PC, Square Enix is now offering free copies of the game -and full refunds, of course- to anyone who bought it.
As you may know, the PC re-release of Final Fantasy VII accidentally went live over the last weekend, and people who bought it found themselves unable to actually play it.
Well, in order to apologize, Square Enix said they will issue "full refunds" for the purchase as well as a “free version” of the game which will be provided when it launches as intended.
Here's their official statement:
The re-release was selling for $12 the past weekend, so you should expect similar price when it officially launches, in the upcoming weeks.This weekend, our teams were testing the product website for the upcoming relaunch of Final Fantasy VII on PC. While the website was being tested in its live state, a small number of people were able to purchase a pre-release build of the game. For those customers, Square Enix will be offering full refunds for the purchases and for their inconvenience, a free version of the classic Final Fantasy VII on PC when it is launched.
We want to thank our community for their continued support and excitement regarding the upcoming rerelease of Final Fantasy VII. We will have more information to share about the launch of this anticipated title shortly.
