Bandai Namco announced today that Code Vein will be delayed from its initial September 28, 2018 release date to a general 2019 window.
Bandai Namco says Code Vein has consistently garnered positive reactions from both media and consumers, but that said, the company has decided that additional time was needed to further develop Code Vein to ensure that the final producer “delivers on the expectations set amongst media and fans.”
Here’s a quote from Bandai Namco Entertainment America’s Vice President of Marketing, Eric Hartness:
“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. 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.”
Code Vein releases in 2019 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam.
