The latest Square Enix remake debuted on PC via the Epic Games Store on December 16 and, as usual, it didn’t take long for dataminers to analyze the title files.
What they found is extremely interesting, since among the files they found clues that hint at an inevitable launch of the game on Steam, Valve’s platform.
In case you missed it: fans are not happy with the performance of Final Fantasy Remake Intergrade and PC.
This is known according to the Twitter user AtelierTool, which refers that Square Enix would have plans to launch Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade also on Steam once the exclusive deal with Epic Games ends.
This is believed to be so because the title contains a Steam AppID on file, a necessary identification in any game that is available on the platform. As the user explains, the AppID of Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade It would have been created a few days ago, 6 months after the original release of the game on PlayStation 5 (June 10, 2021).

This leads us to wonder when the title will arrive on Steam. It is something that is not known with certainty, since neither Square Enix nor Epic Games have revealed the duration of the exclusivity; in fact, if it weren’t for the dataminers, it would not even be known that it is a temporary exclusivity.
Thus, it only remains to speculate about it. Several games that first arrived on the Epic Games Store as temporary exclusives have arrived on Steam almost 6 months or at the latest 1 year later, so it is possible that Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade be available on Steam before the end of 2022. We’ll keep you posted.
