Warhammer 40,000: Darktide has been delayed, after being down for a September release.
We did rather tempt fate when we wrote about the last Warhammer 40,000: Darktide delay, but we didn’t expect our GameSpew Voodoo™ to kick in quite this fast. The futuristic co-op action game will now be release in November of this year, provided there’s.. actually, we’d better not go there.
“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,” reads developer and publisher Fatshark’s statement.
What’s curious is that while the PC version is now down for a November 30th release, the Xbox version doesn’t have a specific launch date. Previously, both versions were set for a September 13th release, suggesting that Fatshark have either found the Xbox version more problematic or the company is choosing to prioritise the PC version (the game isn’t getting a PlayStation release so far).

The good-ish news is you can sign up for a playtest, which’ll be taking place on PC and Xbox. So if you feel like getting a little grimdark slaughter in, before the rest of the world dives into Darktide, you can sign up here.
