Another day, another delay. This time it's the upcoming Xbox console exclusive Warhammer 40,000: Darktide, which has been moved from 2021 to Spring 2022.
The reason, as you may have guessed, is due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. In a statement from Martin Wahlund, the CEO and co-founder of developer Fatshark, it was acknowledged that "building a game during a pandemic is a challenge" and the team is no stranger to that.
As for the extra time, it's being used "to deliver the best game" the team possibly can, with a "focus on the level of quality at release, as well as invest[ing] in more systems to support Darktide for years to come."
Warhammer 40,000: Darktide isn't the only game that has received a delay this week. Resident Evil Re:Verse has also been pushed back to next year, along with Bethesda's Ghostwire: Tokyo, meaning the Xbox launch won't be until sometime in 2023 for the Arkane Studios shooter. It seems we're not quite out of the season of delays just yet.
