BLUE PROTOCOL Release Date: Is Blue Protocol Coming North America and Europe?
Blue Protocol is a AAA budget Anime MMORPG currently being developed by Bandai Namco. Blue Protocol was initially announced back in July 2019, and I expressed my excitement at the time – however, it was announced to be releasing exclusively within Japan. At least that was their initial plan. The game has become so popular all around the world since its original announcement that people continue to wonder when, if at all, the game is going to receive a Western release.
Is BLUE PROTOCOL Coming to the West?
The devs have remained fairly tight-lipped with regards to anything beyond the initial Japanese borders for the game, but the Blue Protocol team did express interest in a Western release, exclaiming that it’s definitely something that they’re in the process of working on over time. Japan is where the game is going to release initially – as that is the country of origin for the game, and that is where they’re aiming to focus their attention for the time being but they have plans of expanding globally after their launch in Japan. They recently held their very first Closed Beta from April 23rd through April 27th and the Closed Beta was a huge success, having over 100,000 players in-game concurrently. While the month of May is going to be scarce, as the devs revealed they’re going to opt out of releasing information throughout the month, they did state that they’ll be releasing a surplus of information pertaining to the survey they held after the Closed Beta had ended in June 2020.
BLUE PROTOCOL WESTERN RELEASE DATE - IS BLUE PROTOCOL COMING SOON?
To quote the developers directly, “We have said that it was intended to go global from the start,” but once again, the question remains: When will Blue Protocol be launching? What is the release date for Blue Protocol? Bandai Namco expressed their plans to try and get the game completed this year, within 2020, but with the state the world is in it’s likely we won’t be seeing Blue Protocol until 2021. Yes, the release date for Blue Protocol is expected in 2021 in Japan, and hopefully the North American release and European releases will be approximately 6 to 12 months after the Japanese launch, so the North American, English release for Blue Protocol should be anywhere from Q3-Q4 2021 through Q1-Q2 2022.
