Warhammer 40K: Darktide released on PC late last year, a dark and lumbering look Left 4 Dead set in the dark, far future of Games Workshop. It was good! There were problems, but it was OK. However, these issues persist until 2023, and so the developers are delaying an Xbox version of the game while they work on fixing them.

In a statement released earlier today, Fatshark said they set out to “create a highly engaging and robust game with a level of depth that keeps you playing for weeks, not hours,” but “failed to live up to those expectations.”

As a result, not only are they delaying the “seasonal content” for the PC version, but they will also delay the release of the game on the Xbox Series X|S.

OPEN LETTER TO OUR PLAYERS

We are extremely proud of our ability at Fatshark to deliver a game for millions to enjoy. That’s what we set out to do with Warhammer 40,000: Darktide, to create a highly engaging and robust game with a level of depth that keeps you playing for weeks, not hours.

We did not meet those expectations.

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

This also means that we will be delaying the release of our seasonal content and the launch of the Xbox Series XIS. We will also be discontinuing upcoming releases of premium cosmetics. We just couldn’t continue down that path knowing that we haven’t covered many areas for feedback in the game today.

Thanks for playing and providing feedback. We really appreciate it. He has and will continue to help shape the game we love.

Martin Wallund, CEO and co-founder of Fatshark

I didn’t think the PC version was that bad! Sure, there were issues, but online games from smaller teams like this often do. On the other hand, smaller teams often lack the necessary resources all at once so if that’s what they want to do with what they’ve got, then that’s what they’ll do with what they’ve got!
