The March 2021 PS Plus lineup of free PS4 and PS5 games was due to be announced yesterday, with the last Wednesday of each month usually being when Sony announces its next PlayStation Plus lineup. However, when the usual announcement time of 4:30 p.m. fell, Sony and its PlayStation channels were eerily silent about the PS Plus in March 2021. It is believed that the next selection of free PS4 and PS5 games may now be announced during the launch. next State of Play, which airs at 10 p.m. GMT today.
And maybe one of the reasons Sony hasn’t announced the next PS Plus line in a typical way is that they have an absolutely stunning selection of free games in store.
As today’s inventory approaches, rumors have emerged about which free-to-play games will be added to the PS Plus lineup for March 2021.
And according to a few separate leaks, Final Fantasy 7 Remake could be one of the free PS4 games in the PS Plus lineup for March 2021.
This rumor was started by Shpeshal Ed, the co-host of the XboxEra podcast.
As the expected PS Plus announcement neared yesterday – which ultimately didn’t happen – @Shpeshal_Ed on Twitter posted: “If you haven’t purchased Final Fantasy 7 Remake yet. Make sure you have a PlayStation Plus subscription for March ”.
And on ResetEra, KatharsisT confirmed this by posting: “It’s true.”
While a publication on Reddit pointed out, several ResetEra mods also supported Shpeshal Ed’s claims.
The ResetEra mod ghostcrew posted, “He’s right about FF7R. It’s March PS +.”
One of the reasons Final Fantasy 7 Remake could be coming to PS Plus may be a separate leak which claimed that the much-rumored upgraded version of FF7R was also being announced during the upcoming inventory.
Final Fantasy 7 Remake: Ever Crisis for PS4 and PS5 would be announced during the next State of Play.
This rumor is from 4chan, so take it with a huge bucket of salt, but the famous internet bulletin board has been right in the past about some leaks.
If Square Enix and Sony introduce a new version of FF7R, it makes sense that the original will be given as a freebie to get people to buy the updated version.
Elsewhere, there have been rumors that Kena: Bridge of Spirits could be another PS Plus title.
This rumor was posted by Twitter user @nananocontrole who claimed that Kena would be one of the next PS Plus games.
The tweeter did not say whether it would be the PS4 or PS5 version or both.
But in response to this, the makers of Kena, Ember Lab, said, “A rumor is just a rumor until it’s announced through our official website and social media!”
The next State of Play airs at 22:00 GMT today and will stream on YouTube and Twitch.
