Blue Protocol's gorgeous cel-shaded visuals made the MMORPG hard to ignore when Bandai Namco Entertainment first unveiled it back in 2019. Keeping its over-the-top action surprisingly clean, the attention it drew towards it translated to a healthy number of people flocking to its closed beta tests. Two years have passed since its announcement, so it's time to see where its PC release date stands.
Blue Protocol's exact PC release date remains a bit of a mystery at the moment. The game is currently slated to only launch in Japan. The closed beta tests also targeted the region.
The MMORPG's Japanese launch is set to happen at some point in late 2021, if things go according to plan. But if you've made it to this article, you're likely wondering about its global release.
There's currently no word on a potential global release, which will be a bummer for fans outside of Japan. At the same time, such a version was never excluded. This could mean that we'll simply have to wait longer before we learn more about a Blue Protocol PC release date targeting other territories.
There's a chance that such a launch will be tied to the game's domestic success, but we think it's highly unlikely to see the game playable outside of Japan before 2022. At least we can watch the Blue Protocol reveal trailer as many times as we want in the meantime.
