At the time, Focus confirmed that the release date for the game would be shared in early December.

Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine 2 is being developed by Saber Interactive. The team is using some of the tech from a prior game, World War Z, in order to power the massive swarms of alien Tyranids. When it launches, Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine 2 will be available on Xbox Series X|S, Windows PC, and PlayStation 5.
Analysis: It's a chonky delay, but I'll be ready
While I wish the game was coming sooner, if this extra time is what the team needs in order to deliver a polished experience, then I understand. There's plenty of other Warhammer stuff to get to in the meantime, such as finishing Warhammer 40,000: Rogue Trader and writing up my review. Not to mention my Leviathan kits that still need assembling and painting sometime soon...
