Code Vein, Bandai Namco’s anime dark souls game, is set to now launch in 2018 the publisher announced today.
Previously scheduled for launch on September 28, 2018, Bandai Namco has shifted the game’s release to simply 2019. The reason for the delay, as you might already guess, is to further develop and polish the game.
“CODE VEIN has received an enormous amount of positive feedback from eager fans who have received hands-on time with in-development versions of the game over the past nine months,” said Hervé Hoerdt, Vice President Marketing, and Digital at BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Europe.
“Armed with knowledge of how well the game has already been received, we made the decision to postpone the release of CODE VEIN to further refine its gameplay in an effort to exceed the expectations fans already have of the title. It was a difficult decision to make, but we feel it is the correct one.”
This delay also means that Code Vein won’t be playable at Gamescom this year while improvements are being made, however future opportunities to play the game will be revealed soon, hopefully at EGX 2018.
