Warhammer 40,000: Darktide pushed to spring 2022
Vermintide developer Fatshark announced that it’s delaying Warhammer 40,000: Darktide until spring 2022.
According to a tweet from Fatshark CEO Martin Wahlund, the delay is partly due to the challenges of developing a game during the COVID-19 pandemic. Fatshark is “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.”
Darktide was originally scheduled to launch sometime in 2021.
Using the same model that made the Warhammer: Vermintide series a success, Darktide is taking the sci-fi world of Warhammer 40,000 and translating it for another co-op, horde-based game. The developer debuted a gameplay trailer for it last December during the Game Awards. Best-selling author Dan Abnett, who’s known for novels written in the Warhammer 40,000 universe, is co-writing Darktide.
Warhammer 40,000: Darktide is launching for Xbox Series X/S and PC.
