Final Fantasy VII: The First Soldier Ends Service

Square Enix has announced that service has officially ended for its mobile third-person shooter battle royale, Final Fantasy VII: The First Soldier.

The reasoning for this shutdown likely primarily stems from a scant player base and lack of profit. Personally, I’ve seen many fans who were willing to give the game a shot had it been available on consoles and PC in addition to mobile. Still, I suppose making the title thrive on the lattermost market exclusively was of the utmost importance.

Honestly, I was never going to ever touch this game, so I don’t feel much toward this outcome, but its incredibly brief lifespan is pitiable. Alongside this announcement, a send-off image was shared, viewable below:


Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII Reunion is a modernized retelling of the original Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII, a prequel to the game that initiated this beloved sub-series. Players control Zack, a hyperactive and determined SOLDIER yearning to become not only First Class, but also a hero in his own right. Combat utilizes real-time action elements alongside the innovative “Digital Mind Wave” system, used to perform special attacks called Limit Breaks and achieve other notable feats.

The Closed Beta Test for Final Fantasy VII: Ever Crisis has been delayed to Summer 2023.
