Souls-Inspired Code Vein Delayed Until 2019

Code Vein, the gothic action-RPG developed by studio Bandai Namco, has been pushed back to 2019.

Code Vein combines the Souls formula with Japanese art design principles, with developer Bandai Namco Studios well-known for its pedigree in highly stylised titles. Code Vein mirrors many gameplay sensibilities found in the Souls franchise, including intense boss fights and risky combat.

Fans have been optimistic about the project as Bandai Namco has been releasing regular updates, including robust character trailers, that demonstrate the different play styles and variety within the game.

The news of a delay comes as a small shock as the latest character teaser released earlier this week with no mention of an updated release date.

The reason behind the delay, according to Bandai Namco Entertainment Europe’s marketing vice president Herve Hoerdt, was due to the developer’s wish to improve on the game. The developer is anxious to exceed audience expectation following mixed feedback from various demo sessions.

Code Vein has also been taken off of the playable demo list for Gamescom 2018, implying that the game will be undergoing relatively significant changes.

There is no new information on precisely when in 2019 Code Vein will be released. Code Vein will be releasing on PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One, with no confirmation of a Switch port at present.
