Fatshark has announced that the upcoming multiplayer FPS Warhammer 40,000: Darktide has been delayed from its previously planned September 13 release date to November 30 for PC and “shortly after” for Xbox Series X/S to gain “more time to improve stability, performance, and to mature key systems.”

The full announcement regarding the delay from Fatshark CEO and co-founder Martin Wahlund can be seen below:
Today, we decided to delay the launch of Warhammer 40,000: Darktide to November 30 for PC. Xbox Series X|S will launch shortly after PC, with a specific launch date to come.
Delaying a game is perhaps one of the most difficult decisions a developer faces and one we are not excited about making. 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.
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.
We also want to invite you on this journey.
Soon, we will start a series of technical tests and betas in advance of our launch, to ensure we deliver the best version of the game. If you’d like to participate, you can sign up for a chance at Darktide.live/signup.
Thank you for all the excitement and appreciation you have shown us thus far – it really does mean the world to us.
