The original release was supposed to be on September 27th but it looks like Code Vein fans will have to wait until next year. According the statement it seems they wanted more time to polish the game and release a high quality game. It was only last week they release introductions to companion characters such as Mia Karnstein and Louis.
In another tweet from the Bandai Namco Europe account, they announce that the game will no longer be playable at the upcoming Gamescom 2018 which was previously announced. The message backs up the Code Vein tweet as they mention “ensuring the final product delivers on the expectations set amongst fans”.
Code Vein will now release on PS4, Xbox One and PC sometime next year 2019.
