Warhammer 40,000: Darktide delayed to 2022

Developer Fatshark provided today an update on Warhammer 40,000: Darktide’s launch window, confirming that the game has been delayed to the spring of 2022 (autumn on the Southern Hemisphere).

Darktide was announced during July 2020’s Xbox Games Showcase and was slated for a 2021 release on both Xbox Series X|S and PC before the delay. If it is any consolation, the game is still launching straight into Xbox Game Pass!

From the developers of the best-selling and award-winning franchise Vermintide, Warhammer 40,000: Darktide is a visceral 4-player co-op action game set in the hive city of Tertium. Fight together with your friends against hordes of enemies in this new Warhammer 40,000 experience.

Shame, but at least Darktide doesn’t have to directly compete with Back4Blood now and vice versa.

This was always on the cards when the Warhammer showcase and E3 came and went with virtually nothing from the game.

No surprise here. The majority of games shown at the Xbox July 2020 showcase have always been expected to get delayed to 2022. At least that’s what I have been expecting. Still waiting to see an official delay for Crossfire X and even though FYQD keeps saying 2021 global release, im expecting Bright Memory Infinite to get delayed to 2022 as well.

Yea nothing on the gunk either or scorn

I think those are on track for this year at least. They were on the 2021 list and Dark Tide wasn’t.

It’s a good call. Gives it decent space from Anacrusis, Back 4 Blood in fall and Redfall next summer (although that one isn’t a L4D inspired game the way the other 3 are, it’s still a 4 player co-op experience friends will want time with) which are all also in Game Pass.

I thought it was scheduled for 2021

It was, but it wasn’t on the Game Pass list released at E3 iirc.

My guess is delayed to 2022. They just haven’t told people yet.

Yeah, the dealy was clear since Game Pass line-up for 2021 didn’t show it.

Yea probably
