Today Bandai Namco announced via press release that its Souls-such as action-JRPG Code Vein was delayed.
The announcement informs that the game will now be published in 2019, with no additional info on a precise release date or even window.
The main reason for the delay is straightforward: The team plans to take a while more time to devote extra time in development to deliver a higher quality game that can match and exceed the expectations of their fans.
“CODE VEIN has received an immense quantity of positive comments from enthusiastic fans who have received hands-on time with all in-development variations of the game within the previous fourteen months. Armed with knowledge of how well the game has already been obtained, we made the decision to postpone the release of CODE VEIN to refine its gameplay in a bid to exceed the expectations fans currently have of this title. It was a tricky decision to make, but we believe it is the correct one.”
The american launching could have followed only one day later on September 28th to get PS4, Xbox One, also PC.
The preceding launch date was declared only a month ago, so it’s fairly peculiar to see a delay after such a short time span. I wouldn’t be surprised when the positive feedback received at various occasions (I honestly harbor ’t spoke with anyone who was less than enthusiastic about the game) convinced Bandai Namco to make a bigger investment to attempt to turn an already great game into a true hit. Instead, they might have realized the fall quarter is rather crowded this year.
