That’s not the only thing that suggests a Steam launch is coming. Players have noticed that when downloading the PC version, the game has a Steamworks folder amongst its files.
For now, Final Fantasy 7 Remake Intergrade has an exclusivity deal with the Epic Games Store. Once that expires however, it seems likely it will make its way to Steam.
Final Fantasy 7 Remake Intergrade finally came to PC last week (December 16). However, there was some controversy as many fans were unhappy with its £65 price tag. Despite complaints, the game is currently on the store priced at £70.
