What is The Warhammer 40K Darktide Release Date?

The upcoming Warhammer 40K Darktide has faced a handful of delays since its initial announcement back in July 2020. Initially pencilled in for a 2021 release, the co-op shooter was first delayed until Spring 2022 before once again being pushed back to September.

That wasn't the end for Warhammer 40K Darktide's delays, however, as one more delay has pushed the game to its currently scheduled release date of Wednesday, November 30th 2022.

This new release date is a little complicated. While it does seem like that will be the final delay, only the PC version of Warhammer 40K Darktide has been given a date. The Xbox Series X|S version of the game meanwhile has yet to be given a date of its own, only announced to be coming out "shortly after" the PC version.

Is Warhammer 40K Darktide Coming to Xbox Game Pass


Warhammer 40K Darktide is currently set to be a Day One release on Xbox Game Pass according to official Xbox sources like the Twitter page but this new release date has thrown the Game Pass release into question. We know it's coming. It's just a matter of when.

The delay to the new date mentioned nothing about how it would change things for Game Pass. The most likely scenario is a staggered release for the game onto the service and getting two releases for its separate versions but that has yet to be confirmed officially. We will update this article once we have more information.
