In spite of the recent character trailers, news today has Bandai Namco putting the breaks on the release date for their upcoming action-RPG, Code Vein. Previously, the game was set for September 28, 2018 release date. But now, that has slipped to 2019.
Bandai Namco have released a statement regarding the delay:
“Throughout its pre-release promotion campaign, Code Vein has consistently garnered positive reactions from both media and consumers alike. With this knowledge in-hand, Bandai Namco Inc. has made the decision to dedicate additional time to further develop Code Vein; ensuring the final product delivers on the expectations set amongst media and fans.

“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 Eric Hartness, Vice President of Marketing for Bandai Namco Entertainment America Inc. “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.”
Of course, this release date change puts Code Vein in a bit of a bind if the recent Bloodborne 2 leak is to be believed. But, you never know with these things.
