Martin Wahlund, CEO of Fatshark Games, announced that their upcoming game, Warhammer 40,000: Darktide has been delayed to November. The announcement came via the game’s official Twitter account where Wahlund expressed the team’s disappointment but calls it a necessary decision:
Today, we decided to delay the launch of Warhammer 40,000: Darktide to November 30th for PC. Xbox Series XIS will launch shortly after PC, with a specific launch date to come.
Delaying a game is perhaps one of the most difficult decisions a developer faces and one we are not excited about making. Still, we hope this speaks to our commitment to taking the time necessary and doing whatever it takes to get you the best possible game.
