Bandai Namco Entertainment announced on Wednesday that the release of its Code Vein post-apocalyptic role-playing game has been delayed to 2019. The company said that based on feedback received in the past several months, it has decided to spend more time on development "to ensure that the final product delivers on the expectations set amongst media and fans."
The game was originally slated to launch in Japan for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on September 27, and for PC via Steam on September 28. The game was slated to launch outside Japan for PS4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam on September 28.
People who pre-order the game in Japan will get a PS4 menu theme with a Code Vein and God Eater illustration by Kurumi Kobayashi (seen below), as well as three weapons based on Bandai Namco Entertainment's God Eater game. First-print copies of the game will also include a download code for the "Venous Claw" weapon.
The game will also get a "Bloodthirst Edition" limited-edition release. The release will include a figure of game character Mia Karstein, a Code Vein World Report art book, a soundtrack CD, and a download code for a "Bloodthirster" costume set.
