Earlier today, it was revealed Warhammer 40,000: Darktide’s launch window has been pushed back from 2021 to Spring of 2022. The news came by way of a tweet from the developers, Fatshark, which you can see right down below.
In the statement above, Fatshark CEO and Co-Founder Martin Wahlund stated that they wanted to deliver the best game they possibly could, and that they’d need more time to do so. He mentions that the pandemic provided plenty of hurdles and challenges for them to overcome, leading to the decision to delay the game until next year.
While the news of a delay is unfortunate, fans of the series responded to the tweet showing their support, letting the team know that this is the right choice and that it is always better not to rush. In the meantime, you can check out the official Steam listing for the game right down below.
“Fight together with your friends against hordes of enemies in this new Warhammer 40,000 experience. From the developers of the best-selling and award-winning co-op action franchise Vermintide, Warhammer 40,000: Darktide is a visceral 4-player co-op action game set in the hive city of Tertium.
In the depths of the hive, the seeds of corruption threaten an overwhelming tide of darkness. A heretical cult known as the Admonition seeks to seize control of the planet Atoma Prime and lay waste to its inhabitants. It is up to you and your allies in the Inquisition to root out the enemy before the city succumbs to Chaos.”
When it does eventually release in 2022, Warhammer 40,000: Darktide will be available for Xbox Series X/S and PC.
