Publisher and developer Fatshark has finally announced Warhammer 40,000: Darktide's release date, revealing that its highly anticipated co-op shooter is now slated to launch in November 2022.
Warhammer 40,000: Darktide was delayed last year, when the developer said it was aiming for a Spring 2022 release date. The title's second delay then came as a result of the team behind it needing more time to ensure it launches in as good a state as possible.

"The aquila-eyed amongst you will note this is later than planned. To us here at Fatshark, it’s paramount that we deliver the best 4-player co-op experience possible. That’s why we’ve decided to extend production time on Warhammer 40,000: Darktide from its previously slated Spring 2022 release to September 13th, 2022," read a Steam post.
In late July, the developer announced a third delay, this time pushing Darktide's release date to November 30.

Fatshark will use the extra time to "improve stability, performance, and to mature key systems." That being said, a series of technical tests and betas are confirmed to take place before the game's launch, and you can sign up here.
In case you're out of the loop, Warhammer 40,000: Darktide sees a squad of four Imperial soldiers facing large numbers of opponents corrupted by Chaos as they fight to stop a cult named the Admonition from spreading its influence throughout the hive city of Tertium.
Players will have to master using both ranged and melee weaponry as they explore the game's dystopian environments.
