Bandai Namco announced that the network beta test for Blue Protocol has been delayed. The development team is having difficulties in fixing a new bug recently discovered within the current build. Bandai Namco will release more information on the state of the network test on January 25, 2023. [Thanks, Dengeki!]
Blue Protocol is an online action-RPG currently in development by Bandai Namco Studios and Bandai Namco Online, and network beta test was originally scheduled for January 14, 2023 exclusively in Japan. However, due to difficulties in fixing a new bug interfering with the network test, and the proximity to the initial dates, it will not run as planned.
Bandai Namco has promised more information on the state of the network test will come on January 25, 2023. The company announced this information through their official Japanese website and Twitter account, where it mentioned that the invitation period for friends will be extended, due to the sudden change in plans.
