Bandai Namco's Code Vein Has Been Delayed Until 2019

By Kim Snaith on at

In June, Bandai Namco announced the release date of Code Vein, its upcoming Dark Souls-meets-anime action RPG, to be 28th September. Now, just over a month later, it has announced that the game has been pushed back to 2019.

In a press release sent out this morning, Bandai Namco revealed that the development team would like more time spent with the game to ensure it's as good as can be. "Armed with the 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," Bandai Namco's vice president of marketing and digital, Hervé Hoerdt was quoted as saying.

Code Vein was also set to be playable to the public during next month's Gamescom, but that has also been cancelled "while the improvements are made".

It's a bummer, but it seems like Bandai Namco jumped the gun last month when it announced a release date. No further details on a new release date have been given just yet – it's just "2019". While we wait for more news, read what Laura thought of the game when she got hands on with an early build last year.
