Another video game delay news, which should not be surprising or disappointing any fans considering the current conditions right now.
Fatshark announced that their co-op shooter set in the grim darkness of the far future, Warhammer 40,000: Darktide, is delayed to Spring 2022 from its original late 2021 release target.
“We have a responsibility to deliver the best game we possibly can, and frankly we need more time to accomplish this goal,” says Martin Wahlund, CEO and co-founder of Fatshark, in a statement posted on Twitter. “It’s no secret that building a game during a pandemic is a challenge and we are not immune to this.
“We are planning to use the extra time to both focus on the level of quality at release, as well as invest in more systems to support Darktide for years to come.”
Warhammer 40K Darktide is a new co-op horde shooter from the makers of Warhammer Vermintide 1 and 2. Instead of the more fantasy setting where you’re essentially fighting a horde of rat people using melee weaponry, now it’s set in the Warhammer 40K so you get to use guns. And the enemies are now Chaos cultists.
Warhammer 40,000: Darktide is now aimed at a Spring (Q2) 2022 release window, coming to PC and Xbox Series X|S.
