Developer Fatshark announced the e four-player action cooperative game, Warhammer 40,000: Darktide, has been delayed from its September 13 release date. The PC version will now launch on November 30 Steam, while the Xbox Series X|S version will launch "shortly after."

Read the full message from CEO and co-founder Martin Wahlund below:

Today, we decided to delay the launch of Warhammer 40,000: Darktide to November 30 for PC. Xbox Series X|S 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.

While we have been humbled by the great feedback on the game so far, we also need more time to improve stability, performance, and to mature key systems. Each is critical to making sure we have the best possible experience for you, the players.

We also want to invite you on this journey.

Soon, we will start a series of technical tests and betas in advance of our launch, to ensure we deliver the best version of the game. If you’d like to participate, you can sign up for a chance at Darktide.live/signup.

Thank you for all the excitement and appreciation you have shown us thus far – it really does mean the world to us.

—Martin Wahlund, CEO and Co-Founder

Read details on the game below:

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

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.

Key Features:

  • A Fast-Paced and Brutal Co-op Adventure – Stem the overwhelming tides of enemies alongside up to three friends in this harrowing co-op experience. Team composition and collaboration are critical, and will determine whether or not you secure victory for the God-Emperor.
  • Combat Evolved – Built on the legacy of Vermintide 2‘s highly-praised melee combat, Warhammer 40,000: Darktide introduces a deep and balanced gunplay to the mix. Master the balance between ranged and melee combat as you fight through a slew of enemies, feeling the impact of each swing of your chainsword or blazing gunfire from your lasgun.
  • An Unexpected Journey – Step into the dystopian and violent world of the Warhammer 40,000 universe where you play the part of a convict turned agent who serves the zealous Inquisition in its mission to exterminate Chaos cultist corruption.
  • Your Character, Your Playstyle – Choose your class and customize your skillset and load-out—all tailored to suit your own style of play. Upgrade your gear, customize your character’s looks, and prove your worth to the elusive Inquisitor.

Harsh year for Xbox as it is possible this will go to 2023. But it is certainly better to delay than to break your team with overwork or deliver a defective/incomplete game.
