Blue Protocol is the new online multiplayer action RPG title by Bandai Namco Online and Bandai Namco Studios, and its network test was originally scheduled for January 14, 2023 in Japan. However, a bug related to the build used forced Bandai Namco to postpone it.

The client will be available to download prior to the start of the network test. Furthermore, Bandai Namco will detail the playable content available in the network test at a later date on the official website.

Bandai Namco officially released a Blue Protocol benchmark program, which includes the character creator for the game. Data from the character creator can be exported and used in the network test and final release of the game.

Blue Protocol is in development for the PS5, Xbox Series X, and Windows PC. It has a Japanese release window of Spring 2023 for PCs. The Japanese network test will run through March 31, 2023 to April 2, 2023. A Blue Protocol closed beta for people outside Japan will appear later in 2023.
