Faced with the lack of enthusiasm for this FF7 game, Square Enix is backtracking. The Japanese publisher will officially put it back in the closet in a few weeks.
Who still remembers or cares about FF7 First Soldier? Few people saw the decision announced by Square Enix.
End clap for FF7 First Soldier
Everything had started well for FF7 First Soldier and its more than 1 million pre-registered players. But now, between the potential hype of the announcement due to this cult franchise and the launch, the overall finding is not positive enough. And like all games that are not squatted in numbers, it’s already (almost) the end!
After nearly a year of riding chocobos, melee combat, and shooting from the rooftops of Midgar Undercity, it is with heavy hearts that we announce the end of service for Final Fantasy VII The First Soldier. Servers will close on January 11, 2023 at 8:00 a.m.. Despite our best efforts to provide regular updates with new and engaging content, we were unable to deliver the experience we hoped for and that you deserve. So we have made the extremely difficult decision to discontinue the FFVII The First Soldier service. We want to thank you for all of your support over the past year. Although there are only a little less than 3 months until the servers close, we will continue to update so we hope you enjoy FF7 The First Soldier until the very end.

And if not what was FF7 The First Soldier? A… battle royale! Knowing that fans come to the franchise for its J-RPG mechanics, stories, and characters, it was off to a bad start. It’s not Fortnite who wants!
