Bandai Namco Online recently held a live stream revealing a lengthy report on the Blue Protocol Closed Beta Test held in late April. In particular, the development team stressed that while many online games in Japan nowadays tend to hold a Closed Beta Test shortly before an Open Beta and launch, Blue Protocol will not be following that pattern and isn’t scheduled to launch soon. It’s even possible it’ll get another Closed Beta Test in the future. There is no schedule yet for what comes next.
The Closed Beta Test report included players’ feedback on various elements of the game. Opinions of the players were very mixed overall. Certain elements were praised, others highly criticized, such as how inventory space was handled. it’s understandable the development team is taking its time to make sure everything works.
