Throughout its pre-release promotion campaign, Code Vein has consistently garnered positive reactions from both media and consumers alike. With this knowledge in-hand, Bandai Namco Inc. has made the decision to dedicate additional time to further develop Code Vein; ensuring 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.”

“We are thankful to Code Vein fans for giving us a huge positive feedback on the development versions of the game for the past months, as a result of the overwhelming support from the fans, we decided to postpone the release of Code Vein to further refine the game and hope to exceed fans’ expectation.” said Rainel Tan, General Manager at Bandai Namco Entertainment Asia. “It is a difficult decision, but we hope that once the fans gets to play the final version, they will agree with us that this decision is a right one!”

Venture into the post-apocalyptic land of Code Vein and uncover its secrets. Players will be able to craft their own unique character and customize their experience by equipping numerous weapons, items, skills, and gifts to accommodate their favorite fighting style or gain a competitive advantage against impossible odds. Various A.I. controlled partners will also be on-hand to explore the interconnected world with their own specialized attributes and personalities.

Phew, hopefully early 2019 when it's not yet that crowded. I might even get this day 1, September is just a BLOODBATH.

Probably a good idea. This game looks fun enough for me to get. But it was going to get swallowed up in September.

They should put out a demo or a beta this year like Nioh did, and use the extra time to tweak a few things.

Woooooooow!

Super Bummed!

I was really looking forward to this, especially after playing it at E3. It definitely needed more time in the oven, but man, I was totally ready for it.

For the kind of game it’s trying to be it’s probably for the best. September is crazy with a ton of other releases anyway.

Well, I guess this is good since it means it won't get lost in all of the releases that are coming in September, but fuck, this was actually the only game I was getting that month lol. Well, I guess unless TWEWY comes out for us at the same time as the release.

Guess this means I have to go a bit longer without that sweet Go Shiina OST.

What is coming out in September that everyone keeps saying it's so full?

There's Spider-Man and Dragon Quest 11 at the very beginning of the month and Shadow of the Tomb Raider a week later.

It's multiple games that all appeal to the same audience.

Valkyria Chronicles 4
Dragon Quest XI
Soul Calibur VI in October
Fist of the Northstar in October

It just seems weird to put out 5 semi-niche Japanese games all on top of each other. And then Resident Evil 2 and KH 3 in January. And this isn't counting some of the blockbuster western titles.

It's just lower odds that people can buy 5 games. So inevitably it will suffer.

Something to had to give and I guess it was this game, but now it’s probably gonna move to another crowded spot next year.

Damn, really looking forward to playing this, but with so much else coming out the rest of the year I don't really have a problem with it.
