Code Vein will no longer release in 2018.

Bandai Namco has announced that they have delayed Code Vein until sometime in 2019. On Twitter, the developer stated that they decided to push the game back after the feedback that they received from E3 and this year’s Anime Expo. In a press release, Vice President of Marketing Eric Hartness also spoke out about the game’s delay:

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. 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 for the title. It was a difficult decision to make, but we feel it is the correct one.” 

Bandai Namco’s decision to delay the upcoming Soulsborne title comes soon after the release of a series of character trailers. The first introduces us to Mia Karnstein, who travels with her brother, whom she will do anything to protect. The second trailer features Yakumo Shinonome, a former mercenary. Finally, we were introduced to Louis, a Revenant researcher who wishes to help others suffering from bloodlust.

Code Vein will release in 2019 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One
