The release date of Code Vein, a new game from Bandai Namco in the ‘vein’ of Dark Souls, was revealed in June as 28th September. However, only a month after the announcement, it has now been postponed to 2019.
In a press release, Bandai Namco stated that the development team of Code Vein would prefer to work on the game longer to make sure that it is perfected. Bandai Namco’s vice president, HerveHoerdt, stated that ‘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.’
Given the current development, the game has also been pulled off from Gamescom, where attendees were going to be able to play the game in its current form.
The new postponement came as a surprise because Namco seemed eager to release the game this year.
