Soulslike Code Vein Was Just Delayed To 2019
Soulslike fans will be quite disappointed to hear this, as Code Vein has been officially delayed from its original release date set in September. Bandai Namco has indeed announced it won’t be coming until 2019.
All the different regional divisions at Bandai Namco have issued statements to comment on the situation, claiming that the amount of feedback received for the game set the bar even higher and there was the will to not disappoint supporters.
“Throughout its pre-release promotion campaign, Code Vein has consistently garnered positive reactions from both media and consumers alike. With this knowledge in-hand, Bandai Namco Inc. has made the decision to dedicate additional time to further develop Code Vein; ensuring the final product delivers on the expectations set amongst media and fans,” Bandai Namco Entertainment America said.
“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,” said Eric Hartness, Vice President of Marketing for Bandai Namco Entertainment America Inc.
“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.”
“We are thankful to Code Vein fans for giving us a huge positive feedback on the development versions of the game for the past months, as a result of the overwhelming support from the fans, we decided to postpone the release of Code Vein to further refine the game and hope to exceed fans’ expectation,” said Rainel Tan, General Manager at Bandai Namco Entertainment Asia. “It is a difficult decision, but we hope that once the fans get to play the final version, they will agree with us that this decision is a right one!”
We’ll update you as soon as the game gets a new release date, as for the moment it’s generically planned for 2019 on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. It’s from the makers of God Eater, so maybe the release of the third chapter may have had an impact on the game, too.
