Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine 2 was one of the biggest announcements at The Game Awards 2021, following up on Relic Entertainment’s beloved 2011 title. However, the wait may be longer than anticipated. Games Workshop’s half-year results are in with Total War: Warhammer 3, Warhammer 40,000: Darktide and Lost Crusade listed for release in 2022.
Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine 2 isn’t mentioned for release this year. Regarding the title, the company stated that, “Deals have been announced to launch a major online game set in the Age of Sigmar universe as well as Space Marine 2. We continue to search for the right long term partners to exploit other IP opportunities: we have some further exciting plans in development.”
It could possibly release next year instead but without any details on the current development state, it’s hard to predict. That the COVID-19 pandemic isn’t ending anytime soon and could still potentially delay future titles also doesn’t help. Regardless, other Warhammer games are still slated for this year so fans should be able to get their fix.
Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine 2 is being developed for Xbox Series X/S, PS5 and PC by Saber Interactive and Focus Entertainment. Stay tuned for potential new details in the coming months.
