Warhammer 40K Darktide: Co-op game release postponed to 2022

Warhammer 40K Darktide

The release of the co-op game Warhammer 40K: Darktide - the spiritual successor to Warhammer: Vermintide 2 - was originally planned for later this year. But the fans have to be patient a little longer for better or worse. Because as the responsible development studio Fatshark has now announced, the release will be postponed by several months.

Accordingly, the release of Warhammer 40K: Darktide is now planned for the year 2022 - a new specific release date has not yet been set . Fatshark cites the corona pandemic and its effects on the development process of the co-op game as the reason for the delay. Most of the team had to work from home, which apparently created some problems.

"We have a responsibility to deliver the best possible game. And honestly, we need more time to achieve this goal It is no secret that developing a game during a pandemic is a challenge - we are not protected from that either. We want to use the extra time to focus on both the quality level at the release and on more systems that can support Darktide for several years. "

This message comes directly from Martin Wahlund, the managing director and one of the reasons behind Fastshark. According to his statements, the release of Warhammer 40K: Darktide is now planned for spring 2022, and the team will certainly provide an exact release date in the course of the next few months.

Warhammer 40,000: Darktide delayed into next year

FatShark has announced that its upcoming co-op shooter, Warhammer 40,000: Darktide, has been delayed until spring 2022 due to challenges caused by the pandemic.The announcement comes from Fatshark’s CEO and co-founder, Martin Wahlund, over on the Warhammer 40,000: Darktide Twitter account. Due to challenges caused by the pandemic, the game is still not at the level of quality the team hoped for, and as such, will not be releasing this year as originally planned. The statement does mention using the time to develop new systems so the game can be supported “for years to come,” so that’ll be interesting to learn about closer to the time of release. As for the new launch window, we’ll have to wait until spring 2022 to get our hands on it.

If you’re looking for a co-op survival game to play in the meantime, then 2021 has got you covered with the likes of Aliens: Fireteam Elite, Back 4 Blood, and Rainbow Six: Extraction, which are all confirmed to release in the coming months — that should (hopefully) keep you and your pals busy while you wait.
