Bandai Namco have announced that their upcoming vampire-starring post-apocalyptic action-RPG Code Vein has been delayed until 2019. Code Vein was due to hit the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on September 27th, but it’s been given a bit more time in development to ensure gamers get the best possible experience with the game.

Bandai Namco released the following statement:

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 Hervé Hoerdt, Vice President Marketing and Digital at Bandai Namco Entertainment Europe. “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.”

With the influx of quality titles coming later this year, the delay isn’t the end of the world. Code Vein still remains a title I’m very excited for though, and it’s another release to look forward to playing next year.
