Code Vein, the upcoming anime take on the Souls formula, has been delayed. Bandai Namco today announced that the game has been pushed back to 2019.
The game was originally penned for release on September 28, 2018. In a statement today, Bandai Namco America said: "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."
"We are thankful to Code Vein fans for giving us a huge positive feedback on the development versions of the game for the past months, as a result of the overwhelming support from the fans, we decided to postpone the release of Code Vein to further refine the game and hope to exceed fans’ expectation," added Rainel Tan, General Manager at Bandai Namco Entertainment Asia. "It is a difficult decision, but we hope that once the fans gets to play the final version, they will agree with us that this decision is a right one!"
Code Vein is set in a future wasteland, where Earth has been ravished by some form of disease. Monsters now roam the land, and you'll have to set forth with your AI partner to fight both humans and beasts alike.
As of right now, the only information we have to go on for an eventual Code Vein release date is a general 2019 window. For everything else you need to know about the game, head over to our Code Vein guide.
