Code Vein Pushed Back to 2019
Bandai Namco has announced that action RPG Code Vein’s release has been pushed back to 2019. The game was previously planned for release on September 28, 2018, for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Bandai Namco provided the following statement regarding the 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 of the title. It was a difficult decision to make, but we feel it is the correct one.
Code Vein is set in a post-apocalyptic world where a phenomenon called the Thorns of Judgment has laid waste to human civilisation. As a result of this phenomenon, surviving humans have gained supernatural abilities at the cost of severe bloodlust that can turn them into members of the mindless cannibalistic force wandering the world known as the Lost. Pascal Tekaia, Zack Webster, and Chris Privitere were all able to briefly check the game out at E3 and reported back with their impressions.
