Code Vein slides into 2019

Bad news SoulsBorne fans, Bandai Namco’s home-grown SoulsBorne adjacent action adventure title Code Vein has been pushed from September 28th, 2018 to a nebulous 2019 release date.

Honestly, the game looks pretty intense and a bit unfinished in person, so we were maybe expecting it to slide a little bit.  Next year will see a ton of big releases, so hopefully Bandai Namco finds it a safe launch  date.

Oh well… here’s the press release below.

BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment America Inc. today announces that CODE VEIN will be moving its release date to 2019 from the previously announced date of September 28, 2018. Throughout its prerelease promotion campaign, CODE VEIN has consistently garnered positive reactions from both media and consumers. With this knowledge, BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Inc. has made the decision to dedicate additional time to further develop CODE VEIN to ensure that the final product delivers on the expectations set amongst media and fans.

?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.?

Venture into the post-apocalyptic land of CODE VEIN and uncover its secrets.
