Inquisitor - Martyr:

New Console Release Date

45

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.

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!

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

As much as I'm bummed because I can't wait to play this game, I appreciate that there are still kinks to work out, and I would much rather them be worked out now than have a problematic launch. Thank you for letting us know!


I was wondering if this was going to happen since I still can't get the imperium edition in the US, sometimes console versions can just take longer, take your time and let's have an amazing launch! 

Hoping for the same as far as the US edition, I'd like to get the Deluxe personally.

Just a suggestion maybe add some info on Xbox itself as there store and pre-order game hub still says today as does many other retail and online stores , both the posts from neocore themselves on there Xbox hubs still say may 22nd who ever you employ for console information role is snoozing

Boy, I'm sure glad I already paid to download it last week.


I get that this stuff happens, but it's frustrating. I could have paid for the PC copy, but opted for console to play with friends who are filthy casuals.


Seriously can't sigh hard enough.

Ive only just read this and my heart broke! Im 34 years old with a wife, a daughter and mortgage so i find it hard to justify to myself buying full price games when i could take my family out for a day and just buy the game when its cheaper. But this game was an exception...because its my birthday on the 19th june. My wife asked me what i wanted and i was torn between your game and God of war. Ive been waiting for god of war since it was announced and i was crazy excited about it but when i saw that inquisitor martyr would be out before my birthday i had to have it. (im a huge wh40k geek) 


Now ive had the story of God of war ruined for me peace-meal by my friends talking about it constantly and ive spend the past six months religiously watching Airsickhydras videos to hype myself up for its Wednesday release and i find that its now delayed beyond my birthday. 


I completely understand that console ports take extra dev time and i can only imagine the pressure you guys are under but this was a huge bummer :( i made an account just to vent about it. 

I think ill treat my wife and daughter to a suprise gift themselves on my birthday instead and wait until the games is reduced. 

Best of luck with game! i shall keep following. 

Yeah, well. Maybe you want to buy this game full price after all, since release just 2 weeks after your socalled bday. Maybe you´ll consider downloading it directly to save some compared to Retail stores.

And those friends of yours. Why don´t you tell them to just STFU ?! Freinds aren´t supposed to give loads of spoilers of games you prefer to wait till you have it yourself.


And you made an Account just to vent about this matter? Well, you made the correct decision to make this Account, because when you are going to play Inquisitor, you gonna need it anyway. In fact, you have to.

Really looking forward to the PS4 release. Keep up the great work guys.  My PSN ID is Arbormancer feel free to add me ahead of time.

Delay is disappointing, its nothing to say here. Nevertheless, i want the game to be good and polished at the release. Also it would be nice to see some information dedicated specifically to console versions (for example, videos of ps4/xbox one gameplay, controls and UI features, graphics resolution and framerate, maybe some news about ps4 pro/xbox one x enhancements)

This wont change reality does it ?
The reality that we have been deceived my Chaos Marines... Two times in a row.


By the way, I am a game environment artist and I have never postpone a single work assigned to me in my 39 years of lifetime.

So if you are supposed to be at an appointment at 5pm and you get stuck in traffic, but you call/text ahead to let them know about the delay you are now a liar? Good to know.


As for your personal record, are you claiming that no project you have done art for has been delayed? Because we both know that isn't true. Just because you meet your individual deadline doesn't mean the project is still on schedule.

You are correct it will not. But the reality is that- 


They have not lied. That is incredibly odd for you to draw the conclusion that they are liars because the dates got pushed. Despite your personal track record as a single cog in an ever-turning machine, it happens all the time.

I am not sure what you do for work, but pushed deadlines are a very common thing in many industries. That does not make them lies, not in any way at all.


It means that things did not go according to plan, through no fault of theirs. It happens, life has a tendency to do that. You are being absurdly immature to make that correlation.


If you were not so focused on calling out their "lies", you would understand and appreciate that it just means they have another month to work on the game before launch.


You reference the Adeptus Astartes, and yet act nothing like them.

I'd wait as long as possible or get it used just so they lose out on as much money as possible, but that's just me and my salt. I'm still not convinced that they were unable to past a coding error for the game on Xbox. With it getting canceled right before release and the sudden ad campaign for it from Sony, as small as it was, it makes it seem more likely that Sony paid for exclusivity, as well as the breach of contract for failing to deliver to Microsoft, and they used the coding error as an excuse.

I've already digitally pre-ordered the game for Xbox and was really looking forward to it, especially after Xbox was screwed over with Deathwing. Since, a beta is out of the question and it will not launch simultaneously with the PC version, is there any chance console users can get something as compensation? Maybe some credits or something visual like a pet/emote/etc.?
After seeing gameplay of Deathwing, I am quite disappointed that the release for Xbox was cancelled. It looks great. My in-laws have a PS4 they are not using, I will have to see if I can borrow it so I can play.

A little bit more honesty would be nice.


First you push back PC, Xbox and PS4 because you want to launch on the same day, that was for May 22nd.

Now you push back only Xbox and PS4 but bring the PC on June 5th? What happened to launch on the same day. This looks

very weird to me. You could have just said a month ago that you can't do the May 22nd and be done with it, instead of "We want to launch all 3 on the same day" 

You missed an announcement before, release date for all three platforms were June 5th. Now console versions pushed back 1 month, but PC version release date still the same. Scroll back the news if you don't believe me.

This is one of the only industries where you can delay a month, after delaying a month, and still expect to have some kind of credibility.
Not really. Projects gets pushed, delayed, slip, put on hold, etc. all the time in the real world. The only people who expect timelines to be firm are those who do not have any experience working on projects.

You do realize, that there is a clear difference between a version for a selected audience of journalists and a version for the broad mass of players, right?

Sony and Microsoft have clear restrictions for releases of games, because this could affect their network. Which means you cannot just pump out a probably unstable Alpha version.

It's a different matter for the PC version, because this is running on the servers of Neocore, if they break down or crash, it's their own responsibility to fix. But if they crash the servers of Sony or Microsoft, they are in for a lot of trouble.

Well  no I didn't know that this how it works, like say I'm just a simple bloke who empties people's bins for a living.



so let me say sorry again for not knowing about how these things work as much as you do.


Thank you for the information.

When were they dishonest? They were in negotiations with the publisher recently, what more were they supposed to say than "We are not sure." What would you suggest they have said that they did not?


They have been absolutely transparent about development, delays, setbacks, etc. Your charges of dishonesty and poor communication are completely unfounded. We are all disappointed by this news, but that is not an excuse to blatantly lie about their actions.


Things change, the world is a fluid, evolving place and game development is a monumental task. You would do well not to negatively criticize others, I know for a fact you are not perfect and that in your own line of work plans change and things happen that cause delays. That is just how life works.


Level your head, it is in danger of entering your ass.

I am going to try something foreign to most of you. Follow along closely as I post my comment, for an example of how one should react to such news.


Thank you for finally clarifying the release date for us. I look forward to seeing the more polished final product next month. You guys are doing a great job!! 


-To be fair, the comments here are much less negative than they have been in other posts, but still. Show some appreciation for all the hard work put into this game, instead of only focusing on the negative.

Console beta would be impossible for several reasons, mainly the tough and strict certification procedures that the console port has to pass regularly.

Sorry to ask... but if this is impossible why is there Footage on YouTube of PS4 footage albeit the Alpha Version

How about a console beta?  This would surely help iron out bugs and make us feel better about the delay/wait.   Plus if people like it, this could help build hype before the full release.
