Inquisitor - Martyr:

New Console Release Date

88

Inquisitors,

the release of our upcoming Action-RPG, Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor - Martyr has been pushed back to July 5th, 2018 on consoles: PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. (So please note that the new console release date doesn't affect the PC release date, which is still June 5th, 2018.)

You might have already noticed, but pre-orders were affected by this delay as well, so please follow our console publisher Bigben's announcements regarding this issue (and we'll let you know as well).

As for the background of this delay... well. Despite the complexity of the project and the size of our studio, we really wanted to pull of a simultaneous multi-platform release, but for the best possible release quality, this hard decision had to be made. Console versions will now benefit from an extra month of attention.

We hope you'll enjoy the game on release day as we enjoyed making it, we're committed to bring you something unique in the Action-RPG genre on consoles as well.

The Emperor Protects.

Yes, seems like the game really is delayed for an another two months. The new release date for EU is 23rd of August. No information regarding the US release date, only that they will announce it soon.

Yeh true enough...


But how many people have pre-ordered it already directly from them, Hundreds / maybe even thousands...well they already have this money... which is why they are hanging on as late as they possibly can do to say it's delayed (again) in which case people get fed up waiting and want a refund... or it's being shelved as they will then have to return this... and they wont want to do that.


I paid £5 for a pre-order from game...and i ripped that up in June when they first delayed it   


I say again... where is the proof of the game... where are the YouTube videos, where are the FPS rate info, where's the Xbox Achievements listing... it's not...


They will announce "August the xx"... Then In August it'll be "September the xx"... and so on and so forth... 


It's a scam... we want proof to say otherwise....

Another thought is, if the game has been cancelled on one or more console platforms, how will this impact the PC version?

Presumably Neocore would be depending on the additional income from the console release to in some part at least help fund the continued development/bug fixes and DLC content for the game.

I asked about the release date in a local eu shop and got an email saying release date has been moved to 23 august.... :( sad times

Yep i agree with you, the whole thing stinks to high heaven, and the entire Marketing / PR Department need sacking 


And i would not be surprised if (as i strongly suspect) the dont pull the game from one or both consoles and are now all sat round a table trying to come up with a press release to justify it's continued delay / or outright cancellation

If I weren’t so looking forward to playing this game, I would find the lack of imformation and the way this has been handled by all involved hilarious! 

We are talking about multi million pound/euro/dollar business here! Who the hell is making the decisions eight year olds? 3 days before the release (that had already been pushed back multiple times) still no announcement and rumour and confusion running rampant.

Others have mentioned it, but it smacks of a cancelled project and companies involved scambeling to plan how to deal with the fallout and inevitable refunds.

If it is a delay I reckon it’ll be at least 2 months. If it’s any more than this then I’m done.

SOON.... we have been hearing this "Soon" for the last two weeks


They will announce another 2-3 month delay and continue to keep hold of the thousands of people's pre-order money (plus monthly interest of course), while doing next to nothing on the console version and leading the console community a merry dance.

I contacted Neocore yesterday about the 5th July date  and was informed there has been a delay to the console game and they will be making an announcement soon? ( abiguous given that its 3 days to supposed launch)

Spoke with Xbox Support today. They know nothing about the delay(the publisher and developers didnt contact them), but they also have not any information about the release this week (obvious placeholder date 31/12/2018). Also, the official announcements for this week: https://news.xbox.com/en-us/2018/06/30/next-week-on-xbox-new-games-july-3-6/. Nothing:(

You need to speak to microsoft/Sony support to get a refund.  BigBen are so useless they can't even get that right despite sending us all emails saying we would be getting a refund!

I wouldn't know either way, just going off from what I've heard. But, even if the Xbox's esram is a tiny bit harder to work with it shouldn't mean scrapping the development for an entire console. Maybe pushing it back slightly, but not canceling it outright.

This was true for last gen, but the PS4 is nearly identical to develop for. They both use the same architecture.  The bigger difference is probably the esram that Xbox One utilizes, which I’ve heard is actually a little more difficult for development.

My pre-order is still saying out for July 5th.

I'm still of the opinion that Sony paid them off. It's easier to code for the Xbox than the Playstation since Microsoft's ecosystem is more or less the same on PC and console. Plus, just after it was canceled, Sony had a small marketing campaign for Deathwing, so it seems more likely they paid for timed exclusivity and Focus' terrible communication thought it'd be better to "cancel" it than to say it was now a PS console exclusive.

Same thing happened with Space Hulk Deathwing. No communication for long periods of time with the release date coming and going. When they finally did release a date, about a month from the announcement, they also canceled the Xbox version saying it was due to being unable to code it. At least Neocore has referred us to the publishers instead of staying completely radio silent.

It honestly is an absolute disgrace at this stage.. Let the console base wait and wait until literally 12 hours before release to announce yet another delay... I was so looking forward to playing this but i have almost been turned off the game due to lack of care by the creators and publishers towards its console fan base.. Prefer an update as soon as they find out they are having problems than the last minute.. Bit of common courtesy can go a long way

The 6th would be good, next Friday I'd be happy with that.


It would give me something to do after Columbia kick us out of the World Cup next Tuesday...lol


But either way, we need an official announcement from the powers that be to put paid to the rumour mill.


Come on guys speak to us and let us know what the score is

So it looks like we've got another date to through into the mix, just found out that Argos (UK Retailer) has now got a release date of 06/07/18? 


As far as i know, this is the 1st time I've heard this date to be mentioned. I checked this 7 days ago and it had been changed to 31/12/18 like all of the other retailers.


So this is either an error, or someone has deliberately changed it back :/

If it is the 24/07/18 it's not too bad i guess, certainly better than August.


It would really be nice to get some form of communication from Neocore/BigBen though. Got to say the amount of speculation, rumor and confusion, that could be completely resolved by a small statement from either is ridiculous.


On a separate note, earlier in the post Maximum Games were mentioned. Are they a new publisher for the US? if so, are they replacing someone, in addition to someone, having any involvement with the console port itself?


Would just like to know, as it seems a little convenient, that (if they are new) they arrive on the scene and suddenly several US retailers get a release date...just saying.

And now into the supposed final week before release there is still no official word from anyone connected to the game in a development / retail / shipping / porting capacity. 


We have all heard the term Silence is Golden,  but not this kind...

So just to get this straight in my head;

1st - May 11th

2nd - June 5th

3rd - July 3rd

4th - July 5th

5th - August 24th (unconfirmed) 

Sorry if I’ve missed some; or gotten some of the dates wrong, but it’s kind of getting hard to keep track at this point, I think everyone will agree.

If this new date is confirmed, it will make it almost a 2 month delay. This I think will put pay to console players having parity of content with their PC counterparts and lead to us being probably a season behind.

If (and I stress that if) this delay does turn out to be correct, the console release now needs to be flawless.

I understand the new console release date (PS4) is slated for 7/5/2018.


However, every retailer I have checked (Gamestop, Amazon, etc.) have the console release date for WH40K: Inqusitor Martyr as December 31, 2018.


Can anyone confirm whether the July 5th, 2018 console release date is accurate? I am currently playing WH40K:IM on steam but would much rather play on my console.


Any official feedback would be appreciated!

The delay was a little upsetting, but means a more polished product in the end. I'm completely new so im still stoked for release day!

From what I understand, you can preorder for the physical version at a retailer, but you can’t preorder digitally.  It supposed to drop on the ps store on July 5th.

You know what, they have had to release it to save face, too many delays  already

 

I mean Christ, the fact that the all the servers went off on release day speaks volumes because they did not expect the amount of traffic... really get a new excuse Blizzard have been using that excuse with WOW since da) one  and no one believes them.


You screwd up...


it wasnt ready for release (Going off the number of bug reports  i see in the forums it and it isn't ready)


So devs please take as long as you like 3/4/6 months to get the console version right, because from what i'm seeing the PC version is  crock of sh!t
