The newest game set in the expansive Warhammer 40K universe, Space Hulk: Deathwing, has been delayed to December 14th.
The game was due for release only two days from now on December 9th on PC, so this is cutting it real close.
The cause of the delay this time around is fixing up the problems players found in the beta version of the game. A press release from publishers Focus Home Interactive reads:
Space Hulk: Deathwing, the FPS of Streum On studio set in the Warhammer 40,000 universe, closed its technical beta last week, during which tens of thousands of players were able to give the team valuable feedback. The team is currently working relentlessly to address the technical points raised. Most issues have already been addressed, including drastic improvement in loading times, optimisation of general performance, improvement of interface and menu elements, sound-design changes including character voices, and fix of numerous bugs and nearly all occurrences of crashes. Work is of course ongoing to fix the remainder of these issues.
In order to offer the best possible experience at launch, we have decided to postpone a few days the release of Space Hulk: Deathwing to allow the Streum On Studio and Focus Home Interactive teams to work on the final adjustments and optimisation. As a result, the game will release December 14th on PC.
This is the latest in a series of delays for this game, but we’re happy it’s due to launch soon.
The vague release date on PS4 and Xbox One of “2017” remains as such at the moment.
To keep us satiated until the release, we’ve been provided with new images from the game which you can view below.
