Blue Protocol, the anime styled online action RPG announced by Bandai Namco in 2019, is very likely to get an English release.
A job posting on Bandai Namco's website indicates the publisher is looking for a Localization Director who would work specifically on Blue Protocol. Additionally, the trademark for the game has been submitted for examination in both the United Kingdom and Canada.

Blue Protocol Story

—This planet used to be a paradise inhabited by gods.
Regnus, a planet full of a mystical light called the “Engram,” was prosperously ruled by ones called the “Bapharian Divines.” The Bapharian civilization they established covered the planet and even enabled them to harness the power of time.
Many centuries and millennia later, the divines have left for the heavens and an era of human rule arrived. In search of the remaining light, people stepped foot into the ruins of the Bapharia. Lost technologies. Shining treasures. Monsters attacking. Towering ancient structures.
—And a power to destroy all civilization, the “Planetary Beast.”
Fighting for the fate of the planet, a new page in Regnus’ history is about to be written.
