Final Fantasy VII Rebirth is only a couple of short weeks away from release and it appears that spoilers are already finding their way online. While the game is technically a remake of the original Final Fantasy VII and spoilers shouldn’t be too much of a concern if you already know the story, it’s possible that Square Enix could’ve changed some plot elements around to keep things exciting and unpredictable in Rebirth.
As reported by Kotaku, several users on Reddit and TikTok have started reporting potential spoilers for Final Fantasy VII Rebirth including “screenshots, clips and descriptions” from the full version of the game. The leaks have yet to be confirmed as real so it’s best to take them with a pinch of salt. However, if you do stumble upon some leaks on social media, be aware that there’s a small chance of it being true.
We’re not sure how these leaks started considering that the game is still two weeks out from release. It’s also unlikely that retailers have received physical copies yet, so there’s no way to verify if any of the leaks are accurate. We won’t be sharing them here but we can confirm that spoilers, whether real or not, are appearing on Twitter/X and some sections of Reddit, so be careful when browsing the internet if you’d rather go into the experience without knowing anything.
