Fatshark pauses Darktide content updates as it apologizes for botched launch

Warhammer 40,000: Darktide (opens in new tab) developer Fatshark has issued an “open letter” to players apologizing for the state of the game and announcing that it will delay the launch of future content updates, and the Xbox Series X/S release, in order to focus on improving the game’s underlying systems and performance.

We gave Darktide an 80% in our December 2022 review (opens in new tab), calling it “the best iteration of Fatshark’s co-op formula so far.” But we also noted the fact, as good as the core gameplay is, Darktide still needed work: The crafting system hadn’t been fully implemented, and some players were reporting serious stability and performance problems.
