Bad news for anyone who was waiting for Warhammer 40.000 Darktide, the online co-op title produced by Fatshark which went along the lines of Vermintide (based on Warhammer Fantasy Battle instead). The game was indeed officially postponed to 2022 and with a note that appeared on Twitter.

"Today, we made the difficult decision to move the Warhammer 40.000: Darktide launch date to Spring 2022. We have a responsibility to deliver the best possible game and frankly we need more time to reach that milestone. It's no secret that making a game during a pandemic is a challenge and we haven't been immune to it. We plan to use the extra time both in terms of release quality and investing in additional support modes for Darktide in the years to come. We couldn't be more excited for Darktide. In fact, the hardest part of this decision is the fact that we won't be able to put the game in your hands anytime soon. But I hope you will join us in Hive Tertium early next year! Give him over 150 “Sharks” here in Stockholm, thank you for your fantastic support ”.
Darktide didn't have a specific release date yet, but the market launch was supposed to take place by the end of 2021. Which, as confirmed by the words of Martin Wahlund, it will not happen and it will be necessary to wait a few more months to be able to try Fatshark's new work firsthand.
