The launch of Warhammer 40,000: Darktide Xbox Series S/X has been delayed indefinitely to fix the PC version.


Warhammer 40,000: Darktide is delaying its console release indefinitely to focus exclusively on fixing issues with the PC version. The game was supposed to launch on the Xbox Series S/X shortly after the PC launch in November, but no release information was provided prior to this announcement. As a result, the developer Fatshark decided to delay the release of the promised seasonal content for the game and respond to feedback in terms of optimizing the “full” skill system, useful progress cycle and PC performance. Judging by Warhammer 40,000: Darktide’s mixed general reception on Steam, console gamers may be disappointed by this announcement, which seems like the right move.

“We at Fatshark are proud to deliver a game that millions of people enjoy. What we set out to do with Warhammer 40,000: Darktide is to create a highly engaging and sustainable game with a level of depth that will keep you playing for weeks, not hours,” said an open letter from Fatshark CEO and founder Martin Wallund. . “We failed to live up to those expectations.” In addition to delaying the release of the S / X series of Xbox, the developer will focus only on polishing the game, stopping the upcoming release of all high-quality cosmetics. The developer says that it cannot continue the path of releasing new content without solving the growing problems of the players.

Released at the end of November, Warhammer 40K Darktide seemed poised for success thanks to its internal combat and highly detailed environments. Warhammer: Vermintide 1 and Vermintide 2 took the four-player co-op formula from the old fantasy entries and added 40k weapons for good results. In it, players are thrown into the brutal city of Tertium to face murderous enemies – a heretical cult known as the Sermon, which seeks to conquer the planet Atom Prime. Customization is divided into class, appearance, and gender, with an additional focus on the crafting system. Unfortunately, the latter gave an incomplete printout, which, as mentioned above, Fatshark wants to fix.

Fatshark was recently releasedSignal update, the first content drop for Darktide, which includes the new Comms-Plex 154/2f mission, two new weapons for the Zealots and Ogryns classes, and the much-requested Private Sessions feature. The update also included two new modifiers for missions, “Hunting Fields” with an increased number of Pox Hounds, and assault missions with increased ammo collection and reduced healing.

Warhammer 40,000: Darktide is available to play on PC via Steam and PC Game Pass. As mentioned above, the Xbox Series S/X version has been delayed indefinitely.
