Inquisitor - Martyr

New Console Release Date

51

Inquisitors!

We have a new release date for the console editions of Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor - Martyr. The new date for PS4 and Xbox One is 

August 23, 2018.

First of all, sorry for not confirming this earlier, but this decision involves multiple parties and complex problems that needed to be sorted out first. The reasons for the delay are a bit easier to explain:

  • Finding a solution for access restrictions in certain countries where networks are subjected to stricter surveillance
  • More work on online functionalities in the persistent world, and general polish

We're working hard on making the game properly functional and polished on both consoles, in all countries. Thank you for your patience and understanding, and please know that we're really eager to see Inquisitor - Martyr becoming the multiplatform title it is meant to be. It takes work, but it will be worth it.

Chaos never sleeps, but still, you know... the Emperor protects. See you soon in the Caligari Sector!

As you guys know, we are working closely together with GW and BigBen (our console publisher). Regarding communication, we had to wait until they could confirm that GW had approved the release date. Until then we couldn't confirm anything. That's why we said that you should ask BigBen, because they've got the latest information about the console versions. 

But don't worry, the console versions are shaping up nicely, we will have a livestream soon where we can show it to you finally. We will also have a dev interview with the console team.

4 weeks before release. Suppose now is soon enougth

So i see that console preorders can be done via this website but it doesnt apply to the US so just curious about why that is because i would kinda like the imperium edition stuff that i had to do some awesome cancelations for and contacting xbox for refunds after the date change and no other preorder to be allowed on the market or whatever the deal is with that i understand getting things to be marketed with other companys such as microsoft and sony can be a potential pain i would just greatly like to support this game and possibly help with getting others like thq to make space marine 2 im not sure where 40k rights lie nowadays but if it helps in future improvements or developments in possible sequels and such.

We have already asked that on the first delay in May


Apparently they can't do it.


Probably a bit like they can't provide any kind of proof the game on console format actually exists, 

Videos of it running on PS4 can be found on YouTube. Quit acting like  a spoiled child who's parents never told them no.

I couldn't get them to say anything let alone asking you guys about what sort of frame rate the game is gonna have on consoles.


Since you have to go through certifications to be approved for manufacturing discs you would have known things aren't finished. That's not days before the old date. A patch takes two weeks on psn through certification. Your team and bigben knew this and had plenty of time to tell us but chose to at 3 days before the expecting date.

Either way i wish you well even though i am not gonna be a  likely customer at this point.

Thanks for the reply. Its hard to work with restrictions of non-disclosure agreement, i know. Thats mean that any information about console versions(videos, screens, dedicated platform port features) is also in the hands of BigBen. Sad(

This makes me extremely sad, guess I'll cancel my preorder and get it on sale around new year. I mean, if You had issues with servers etc. You should release some heads up note, because it's a not a thing that randomly pops up like a pizza delivery - that You can't set up servers because reasons, they need to be put on, configured and tested, a day or two before release... ? really?  and how comes PC works without problems? since it was released all around the world? in countries that ban half of steam library ?

As I know, bigben is the publisher and reliable for the console releases, press releases and other kind of communications first of all as you can see here and on facebook, etc., so if they was too late with this announcement, well if you ask me, yeah, that was not the best practice, but it's their own field.


Anyway, if you like to ask somebody from the Community Management team, just use the mention system (use @ and then directly the wanted nickname, it looks like this: @MORZAN‍ ) or write us through the "Support" system.

Well, this response is valid and understandable. Maybe you know something about why delay announced just in 3 days before release and not in 2 weeks ago. Thats one of biggest concerns for now;)

The best way of treating potential playerbase - deleating their comments. Looks like there is a community manager who reads posts. Well, how silent he was last 2 weeks;)

P.S. You guys dont like Vermintide 2 or what

Wouldnt there be Red Dead 2 or Fallout 76, December could have been a appropriate month. But with such big Games the next time i will definitely prefer them over Inquisitor. Sad but true ^^

Is there going to be some sort of compensation for this new delay?

Hummm i know what you mean... 


Strange Brigade is out a few days after the 23rd, and that looks really good, then there is the New Tomb Raider, then Fallout76


Actually thinking about it... A December release slot would quite suite me


Tide me over till Anthem in February...

So, sadly no Warhammer 40k Inquisitor for me this Year. I was really looking forward to his one.  But now, after delaying it again, i dont see any way it will fit in my Gaming Timetable. It would have fitted perfectly this Month. July-August = Inquisitor Martyr, September = Spiderman, October = Red Dead 2 and maybe in November Fallout 76. As you can see, there is no Space left. Maybe next Year. If im still interested in playing this Game.

Please make these announcements with more warning! If you must delay a release, I'd rather know more than a few days before the last announcement... I just hope this is the final date!

This is going the route of Space Hulk: Deathwing with never ending delays.  Now I am just waiting for the announcement that says it is not coming out on Xbox.

i love how you could rush out this on console and make a quick buck and run but you are actually working to iron out the experience,  that said waiting still sucks but i can wait

Nope.  No way in hell I'm getting it now.


Two delays back to back.  Two delays not announced by the dev until days before scheduled release.


You're either shady, or incompetent, or both.  Either way, I'm out.  And regardless of what the obligatory fan boy might post, you're going to see a BIG chunk of potential console customers who feel the same way.

Thank you for lying the 3rd time and saving my money. You really become better and better on this. Gratz.

Firstly i've got to say i'm really disappointed, as i (and i'm sure a lot of other people) was really looking forward to finally playing the game.

I must also say that despite what Neocore alluded to in their statement, their (and as the developers, the buck must really stop with them) handling of the situation has been terrible.

That all being said, i still want to play the game so i'm trying to see the benefits the delay will offer and hoping with the additional time this delay allows, we should get a much better release than the PC community. However i would like to point out, Neocore, your behavior isn't really encouraging a good community atmosphere and instead is creating a lot of toxicity. For a game that's looking to make ongoing and long term content releases, this doesn't bode well and needs to change.

A good step towards improving this situation, would be to address what content the console players will have access upon release. With the PC already having the first event and the first warzone scheduled to drop shortly, i for one would like to know, when the game does arrive, will we have access to the same level of content?

All the delays for console is a massive red flag for me. I’m cancelling my precorder & waiting on reviews. 
I told my friend the same thing after reading this update. Delays happen, but to not announce them until the last week before the scheduled release date (twice!) tells of mismanagement and a very buggy product, especially when these delays are for a month or more each time.


I really hope the console version is as great as many of us want it to be but now you are going to have to prove it to us. Better hope you brought your 'AAA' game since you are asking us to pay full price. Hopefully we will find out at the end of August this time.

Thankfully, I did not preorder the game. I did however keep a close eye on this as I have become quite interested in the game because it does look like something I could end up not putting down for awhile. So as far as the game goes, I'll probably pick it up eventually.


The lack of professionalism is another story. Another deadline move? This is not how you retain/gain fans. First a month, now 2. Both right before scheduled launches. Shame. All the excitement for this is now gone for me and I will not be paying any attention to it. The least you could do is release a functioning "beta" for console to give us a glimmer of hope.

Well, I just hope that this day now will actually be a firm release date for the release of the Console Versions and that each and every version of the game will be able to Preorder as it is supposed to actually be. And that includes that it can be bought from Gamestop Stores, Gamezone Stores, Amazon and so on.


For how it is now, Gamestop Stores is not selling the Imperial Edition. Only the regular and Deluxe Edition. Gamezone is ONLY seliing the versions for the Playstation. ALL the Xbox Versions were just ripped off and completely taken out and IMPOSSIBLE to find on their site. Xbox Online Store just did the same thing as well. Ripped from the site and was impossible to find.


There are lots of things to work out regarding physical game Boxes here. So much MESS has been made back and forth. And this game was actually meant to be released simultaneously on ALL versions.

In my case I have this game already and playing it for full like it already is, so in that way I don´t care THAT much, but I feel for the people who actually wants to have it on Console, and it has been so much a frustration and whatnot about all this.

And besides, I have actually been thinking about getting it on Console myself. Not VERY likely, but it has strafed me as a possiblity.

As someone who understands how difficult it is to program on different systems and how other countries run their internet, i.e. China. You guys keep the good work and don't listen to these whiners. I been playing the PC and you have a good game. I might pick it up on the PS4 for my kids to play.  Thank you for doing right by the IP and your customers.

We cant belive you Neocore. Now you need eight weeks more to polish teh game? Network restrictions are you serious? This is a game and you are doing a joke. My patience is over.

Generally, if you see a date on a different retailer's page, never assume it's correct. Many retailers use placeholder dates if they're unsure about a date. NeocoreGames is the developer of the game and Bigben is the console publisher. Any information not coming directly from us, is always less reliable.

I preordered a week before june 5th. Ok delays are ok but telling us 3 days before the old date to say the new date is bad customer relations. You knew a lot longer then 3 days. Even Amazon switched dates before you told us.


I am gonna cancel my preorder. I have a feeling that the console release is gonna have some sort of issues with everything going on. If the game is fine i may pick it up when it's on sale but i am not paying full price after all this lack of respect for us.
