Upcoming MMORPG Blue Protocol it now has a release date in Japan, but there’s bad news in store if you’re in the West and excited about it. The game will launch in Japan on June 14 for PC, but in the West, where it’s also scheduled to hit consoles, it won’t arrive until 2024.
This news comes via a recent Blue Protocol live broadcast, which took place today. During the broadcast, the game’s producers discuss Blue Protocol in-depth, delving into details about gameplay, story, and more. They also reveal the game’s Japanese release date and western delay. The stream is in Japanese, but you can check it out here if you want.
Towards the end of the stream, a slide is shown with the text “Modified Western Version Release Date” and showing a change from 2023 to 2024. It is accompanied by the Amazon Games logo, Blue ProtocolThe West Publisher. The game was previously scheduled to release outside of Japan in the second half of 2023, so it looks like you’ll have to wait a bit longer.
It’s not all bad news though. following the japanese Blue Protocol network test earlier this year, Bandai Namco says a closed beta test for PC will take place in the West sometime this year. We don’t have any more specific dates yet unfortunately, but it’s nice that you potentially get a chance to try Blue Protocol it comes out in 2023, even if you don’t get the full game.
Blue Protocol lands in Japan on June 14 and in the West sometime in 2024. We’ve already taken a pretty deep look at the game’s impressive character creation process, action RPG, and beautifully rendered anime opening scene (complete with a song by none other than the legendary Japanese rock band L’Arc-en-Ciel). Hopefully those things should help you all the way. Blue Protocol western release.
