Neocore Games' Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor - Martyr is probably one of the most anticipated games of the year, but also one of the most delayed. At last count, the action-RPG has been pushed back three times already, and was originally due to appear in May.

Fortunately it looks like things are finally on track, with the developer confirming the game will be released digitally for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on August 23. 

Warhammer 40K: Inquisitor - Martyr will then launch at brick-and-mortar retailers in the UK and Europe on August 24, though it's not yet known when it'll hit the US. 

Neocore also offered a reason for the game's troubled release schedule:

'Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor - Martyr is an action-RPG with a strong focus on a persistent online world. The development of certain multiplayer functionalities needs more time than predicted to ensure that they grant the best gameplay experience on consoles.'

'Furthermore, access restrictions have appeared in countries where networks are subjected to stricter surveillance. Delaying the release of the game will allow these technical problems to be resolved and it guarantees that players all over the world will enjoy an excellent multiplayer experience.'

Warhammer 40K: Inquisitor - Martyr was released for PC on June 5. Fingers crossed it'll finally make it out for consoles next month.
