Hold your horses, folks! Let’s calm down a little bit, even though some of you really want to scream “what kind of madness is this?!?!” right after the finally official release date was revealed last month. Previously, and also what i assumed, the developer has delayed the game without a notice—if you remember, it was supposed to be released early this year—by revealing more and more information about the game and its characters alongside oh so many screenshots. Now, they delay Code Vein, again, to next year.
“What kind of—?!?!”
Okay, okay. Let’s chill down a bit again, alright? The developer have a really good reason for it. They want to develop Code Vein even more so the game can meet the expectations of those who have been waiting for it. They literally don’t want to disappoint their fans and also the media. A pretty good reason, considering how the game looks like with its story, gameplay, and graphics.
Don’t believe me? See the full press release for yourself.
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.”
