Bandai Namco have announced a delay for the global release of the highly anticipated game, Blue Protocol. The game’s worldwide release is now scheduled for 2024, although the developers remain committed to launching a Closed Beta Test (CBT) this year, according to an update on the official Blue Protocol website.
Despite this setback, Japanese players can look forward to a confirmed release date of June 14, 2023. This date marks the first time players will explore the world of Regnas, a visually stunning environment that lies at the heart of Blue Protocol’s gameplay.
Bandai Namco cited the localization of the game’s immersive narratives and the development of infrastructure necessary for multiplayer adventures and massive online raids as reasons for the delay. The company is committed to ensuring the best possible experience for players upon launch, not only on PC but also on Xbox X|S and PlayStation 5.
Aspiring adventurers need not despair, as they will have the chance to immerse themselves in the world of Blue Protocol ahead of its full release. Bandai Namco confirmed the PC Closed Beta test would still take place in 2023, providing a hands-on preview of the game before the official global launch. Players interested in participating can sign up for the CBT on the game’s official website.
Blue Protocol, a free-to-play MMORPG with high-quality anime-inspired graphics, has been in development by a team drawn from across Bandai Namco’s divisions, including producers from famous franchises like Tales and Tekken. The game has generated significant buzz in the gaming community, with players eager for a fresh and engaging MMORPG experience.
While the delay may be disappointing news for some, it also serves as a testament to Bandai Namco’s commitment to providing a high-quality, polished game for its fans. The company’s decision to ensure a seamless player experience, especially in complex multiplayer scenarios and large-scale online raids, underscores this commitment.
Stay tuned for further updates about Blue Protocol, its Closed Beta Test, and its much-awaited global release.
