According to IGN, the game is currently scheduled to launch in 2016 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.

Neocore has high hopes for Martyr, saying in a statement that, even after you complete the campaign, the narrative will continue to unfold by way of its "colossal sandbox." This should allow players to continue to enjoy "years of constant entertainment" through regular add-on content and more.

The developer is working with Warhammer license-holder Games Workshop on Martyr. Neocore producer Zoltan Pozsonyi also assured hardcore Warhammer fans that the studio is right there with them.

"There's a reason why we chose the world of Warhammer 40,000: it's intense, brutal, visceral---a perfect material for an action RPG," he explained. "We're huge fans as well, so we care deeply about this game."

Other in-development Warhammer games include Sega's Total War: Warhammer and Warhammer: End Times - Vermintide from Fatshark Games.
