Both developers issued statements explaining the delay of Final Fantasy VII Remake and Marvel's Avengers.
"We are making this tough decision in order to give ourselves a few extra weeks to apply final polish to the game and to deliver you with the best possible experience.

"When we set out to bring you our vision for Marvel’s Avengers, we committed to delivering an original story-driven campaign, engaging co-op, and compelling content for years to come.

Final Fantasy VII Remake is headed to the PS4, however, a recent data leak suggests that a PC port could also be on the way further down the line.
