The trailer for Warhammer 40K: Space Marines 2, debuted at the 2021 Game Awards. It featured the Adeptus Astartes fighting against the Tyranids’ monstrous threat with no clear winner.
The trailer depicts a group of Imperial Guardsmen losing against a group of Hormagaunts, only to be pushed back by Ultramarine Captain Titus, who jumps into battle to save them. A sophisticated trailer that only served to open curiosity and two years of speculations as to when will the actual release be.
With two years under the belt with no further updates, no new trailers or gameplay announcements, gamers continue to be in the dark. while developers rave on about more horrible-looking monsters and more ferocious fighters, there are no hints or leaks of any good news.
No News, Hints, or Leaks Yet
Some critics are already documenting the impatience of players and how much Games Workshop is lagging behind with the much-anticipated release of the Warhammer 40 K franchise. One commentator even speculated that the continued good sales of Warhammer 40K: Space Marines may be the guilty bandit causing this tardiness.
The concept seems to bear some truth. While great sales continue steadily, there is no need to roll out a new version just yet. Maybe after another six months, if sales should dwindle, or fall to new lows, then the game developer will find a need to launch the game.
However, right now, the new releases in other Warhammer will keep it busy with advertising and content updates. The game needs soldiers, equipment, tools, and stories.
With all the speculations of release dates for 2023, there is no proof of leaks or hints to support them. As is usual, there are always rumors and stories that float around the web. the safe way is to look for developer’s hints or journalistic leaks. Until then, we will just have to sit tight, grin, and bear it.
