Code Vein, Bandai Namco’s vampire-based action RPG, has been delayed until 2019.
A press release from Bandai Namco states the release date for Code Vein has been pushed back to some time next year, even though the original September 2018 release date was only announced last month.
Herve Hoerdt, Vice President Marketing and Digital at Bandai Namco Entertainment Europe, says the delay is due to the desire to improve the game and exceed fan expectations after feedback from hands-on demos.
“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.”
This also means Code Vein is being removed from the playable lineup at Gamescom 2018 while the game is improved upon.
However, we did get a look at Code Vein at E3 and found that the in-game companions really prove their worth during the boss fights. Or if you need more help in this post-apocalyptic world, the RPG has also been confirmed to feature multiplayer support.
