'Warhammer 40,000: Darktide' Needs More Development Time, Delayed Until Spring 2022

by Rainier on July 15, 2021 @ 10:39 a.m. PDT

Warhammer 40,000: Darktide is a four-player co-op game set in the 41st Millennium, taking you deep into the hive city and facing hordes of enemies you have only seen in your nightmares.

Fight together with your friends against hordes of enemies in this new Warhammer 40,000 experience.

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.

Players will not be able to hide behind lethal ranged weapons, they'll need to combine both FPS and melee skills as they get up close and personal in visceral clashes between Imperium and Chaos factions. Warhammer 40,000: Darktide will bring everything you have come to expect from the developers of the multimillion selling award-winning Warhammer: Vermintide franchise.

Originally planned for launch in 2021, developer Fatshark revealed that the game needs more work and is postponing the game until Spring 2022.

Today, we made the difficult decision to move our release date of Warhammer 40,000: Darktide to the Spring of 2022.

We have a responsibility to deliver the best game we possibly can, and frankly we need more time to accomplish this goal. 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 system to support Darktide for years to come.

We couldn't be more excited about Darktide. In fact, the toughest part in this decision is the fact that we won't be able to put the game in your hands sooner. But I hope you will join us in Hive Tertium early next year!

From all of the 150+ "Sharks" here in Stockholm, thank you for your amazing support.

Warhammer 40,000: Darktide will be coming to PC (Steam) and Xbox Series X in 2022.
