The dataminers of the Epic Games Store discovered two new applications that are coming to the Epic store, apparently one is called Pineapple QA and the other HeronStaging. The information also reflects the companies behind the app, one is Square Enix and the other is Remedy Entertainment. They could be anything and the speculation could have taken months, but a folder leaked the real names of the games.
The game save folder in the cloud reveals that Pineapple QA is Final Fantasy VII Remake, while HeronStaging is a remaster of Alan Wake. In this way, two rumors that have been heard for at least a year are confirmed. The negative reactions have not been made to wait, and it is that these leaks have many things to unpack.
Two PC games
Starting with Final Fantasy VII Remake, apparently it would no longer be exclusive to PS4 and PS5, Square Enix had already anticipated that the exclusivity of the game would last a year, but more than a year has passed and we had no news. However, it seems that the game would come to PC but as an exclusive to Epic Games, something that will definitely not be liked by many. So Square turns against Sony and Steam gamers in one fell swoop.
For their part, there was talk of a close relationship between Remedy and Epic, they published Control in their store and have given away several of the company’s games on celebration dates. So it makes sense that Remedy has decided to revive the Alan Wake saga now that it belongs to them again. However, it’s been so long that it would be a good idea to revive the brand with a remaster.
In any case, let’s remember that this is datamining, the projects clearly exist, but they must first be finished and confirmed, since for now we only talk about plans and intentions.
