Code Vein was originally scheduled to release at the end of September this year, but the developer and publisher Bandai Namco has now announced that the action game is now set to release somewhere in 2019.
The game, which is described by the developers as “Anime Dark Souls meets vampires”, apparently needed a little bit more time to polish the gameplay. The development team is led by Yusuke Tomizawa and previously worked on the God Eater games.
Code Vein features a futuristic setting with a vampire race known as the Revenants that are highly dependant on drinking the blood of others. Vein refers to the name of the location, and Revenants who are unable to feed themselves with blood turn into hostile monsters known as the Lost.
The game will release on PC, Xbox One and PS4 and a specific new date haven’t been announced.
