There will be a longer wait until we can play Blue Protocol in English, as the worldwide release date got delayed into 2024. The seventh presentation for the game announced it won’t show up in 2023 as planned. However, while the full launch is pushed back, some will still get a chance to test it out. Bandai Namco confirmed that a PC closed beta test will show up sometime in 2023.
This worldwide delay comes after the Blue Protocol Japanese release date appeared. People in the country will be able to start playing it on a PC on June 14, 2023.
The announcement came at the 51:40 mark of the official seventh presentation. You can watch it in the video below. However, while the delay announcement does feature English text, the rest of the showcase was in Japanese.
And here’s the specific Blue Protocol English announcement panel.
As a reminder, it is possible to already sign up for a chance to play Blue Protocol this year. The closed beta test registration is already open. People can sign up on the official site if they have a PC and want to take part. You do need an Amazon ID in order to opt in, however. Also, while it does mean you’ll get direct updates when they come in, it doesn’t guarantee participation.
The Blue Protocol Japanese release date is June 14, 2023, and the worldwide release is now delayed until 2024.
