Code Vein is a hack and slash action game which was supposed to launch on Xbox One, PC, and PlayStation 4 this year. A few weeks ago, Bandai Namco stated that the title would launch on September 27, 2018 in Japan and a day later in western markets. Unfortunately, today the company announced that Code Vein was pushed back to 2019. It's unclear when in 2019 the title will launch as no release window was provided.
Bandai Namco issued the following statement announcing the delay.
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... 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.
Hopefully Code Vein will be a polished experience when it launches in 2019. We'll keep you posted as soon as we receive more information.
The game takes place in a post-apocalyptic world following a terrible event that throws humanity into chaos. After huge thorns emerge from the ground, these mysterious objects leave the world is a state of disrepair. What's left of humanity is wiped out by hostile creatures that accompany the thorns.
The only survivors of the cataclysm are now vampires who have to feed on blood in order to stay alive. Trained to wield an array of weapons and supernatural abilities, these vampires try to slay the monsters roaming the streets and harvest their blood. The game appears to be more focused on trying to survive in this harsh environment rather than an epic quest to restore humanity.
