Square Enix revealed on Tuesday that two of its major upcoming games will be delayed: Final Fantasy 7 Remake won't come out until April 10, and Marvel's Avengers won't assemble until Sept. 4.

The first episode of Final Fantasy 7 Remake was meant to hit PS4 on March 3, but producer Yoshinori Kitase said in a statement that his team opted to take "a few extra weeks to apply final polish to the game and to deliver you with the best possible experience."

Marvel's Avengers was due out on PS4, Xbox One, Google Stadia and PC on May 15. On Tuesday, co-studio heads of developer Crystal Dynamics Scot Amos and Ron Rosenberg said their team "will spend this additional development time focusing on fine tuning and polishing the game."
