Warhammer 40,000: Darktide Has Been Delayed Again For Xbox Series X|S

We've been waiting a very long time for Warhammer 40,000: Darktide to arrive on Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S as part of Xbox Game Pass, and unfortunately it seems as though the wait is far from over.

Earlier today, Warhammer 40K: Darktide developer Fatshark took to Twitter to apologise for the state of the game on PC (and PC Game Pass) right now, promising to address player feedback in a major way.

"Over the next few months, our sole focus is to address the feedback that many of you have. In particular, we will focus on delivering a complete crafting system, a more rewarding progression loop, and continue to work on game stability and performance optimization."

Because of this, the team has decided to delay the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S versions of the game, as well as the release of various in-game cosmetics, with no new dates provided for either of these.

"This also means that we will delay our seasonal content rollout and the Xbox Series X/S launch. We will also suspend the upcoming releases of premium cosmetics. We just couldn’t continue down this path, knowing that we have not addressed many feedback areas in the game today."

Warhammer 40,000: Darktide was first announced for Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S (along with PC) all the way back at the Xbox Games Showcase in 2020 with a release window of 2021, so we're keeping our fingers crossed that we're going to finally see it on consoles this year... but this setback suggests a late 2023 release is looking the most likely scenario at this point.
