Despite confidently confirming action RPG CODE VEIN's September 28th release date just last month, Bandai Namco today announced the launch will be moved to 2019, "ensuring the final product delivers on the expectations set amongst media and fans."
While Bandai Namco continues development, CODE VEIN will be pulled from the upcoming Gamescom 2018, where it was initially going to be playable to attendees. However, the developer promises more "hands-on opportunities soon" and is pleased with the feedback from players so far.
"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," said Hervé Hoerdt, Vice President Marketing and Digital at Bandai Namco. "It was a difficult decision to make, but we feel it is the correct one."
We don't have them yet, but we'll publish a story as soon as we pick up the CODE VEIN achievements.
