There is a Tales of Crestoria release date update, though there are no confirmed or solid dates yet. Tomomi Tagawa, the producer, took to the official Twitter account to provide a statement with a timeline. On April 26, 2020, the Tales of Crestoria theme song and a new video will be released. In early May 2020, the closed beta test will be held worldwide. Finally, in early June 2020, the game will launch in every region. However, the statement did say that the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic could cause these estimates to change.
Here is the full Tagawa message talking about the estimated Tales of Crestoria schedule, its worldwide release, and the upcoming beta and launch.
Thank you for your continued support of Tales of Crestoria. As I know many of you are excitedly awaiting the game, I have some news regarding the release date.
We are currently proceeding with the game’s development with an early June 2020 release date in mind.
We have an update on the current development situation.
As mentioned in a previous update, we’ve been working on adding full voicing to the main story, specially illustrated cut-ins, and various other brush-ups to the game. As we enter the final stretch, we feel that Tales of Crestoria has become a game that players will thoroughly enjoy.
*Voices will be in Japanese.
We also hope that you’re looking forward to the theme song and new promotional video, due to be released on Sunday, April 26th.
This title will be the first game in Tales series history to release simultaneously worldwide. We hope that fans all over the world will be able to play and get excited about the game together. To that end, we will be conducting an open beta test of the English version during early May in order to assess network load in certain regions.
We understand that some of those beta test players may post details about the game and the first part of the story on their social media or other outlets. However, this is a necessary measure to ensure that our fans all over the world will be able to play the game without network-related issues. Thank for your understanding.
There is still some more time before release, but the whole development team will do our utmost to make sure that the game emerges as polished it can be. We hope you look forward to playing it.
*There may be schedule changes due to the new coronavirus infection (COVID-19).
Tales of Crestoria has experienced quite a few delays as Bandai Namco prepared the game for its worldwide debut. It was first announced back in September 2018. Then, in December 2018, the company said it would appear in 2019. That didn’t happen, and it was pushed into 2020 back in October 2019.
The new Tales of Crestoria release date will fall in June 2020. The game will be available on Android and Apple iOS devices.
