After releasing a trailer at the summer game fest 2022, the shooter has been further pushed back once again by 10 weeks.

“Delaying a game is probably one of the most difficult decisions that a developer has to face and one we are not excited about making,” Wahlund stated. “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.”
Wahlund still went on to say that the extra development time was required to improve the game’s stability, performance, and key systems. These are all important in battling heresy.
Peek behind the chaotic Veil
For all those of you that want to check out Darktide before the November launch, Fatshark announced that it would be rolling out a series of betas ahead of the launch. Those Playtests are expected to start in mid-august and would continue right all the way till release.
Head over to the official site and sign up for a chance to take part. It is worth you noting that Playtesters would be picked based on their PC’s hardware specs, and any in-game progression would be wiped when Warhammer 40,000: Darkside launches.
Warhammer 40,000 Co-op Shooter consistent Push Back
This happens to be the third time that this hotly anticipated shooter has been pushed back, Darktide was first set to launch in 2021, right before being delayed to spring 2022 following the Covid-19 pandemic. Its releases to date were once again changed a second time to September, but would now be joining the likes of God of War Ragnarök and Skull and Bones in the late fall.
Some Extra Development time is not actually a bad thing though. Fatshark looks to be pushing the boat out this time, and Darktide has fast become one of TRG’s Most-anticipated upcoming games. It would not only transport the Left 4 Dead-style fantasy brawling of Warhammer: Vermintide to the 40K universe, but it would also include live-service elements and much great customization.
