This "will result in an optimized and extended experience" when the console versions are released.


Warhammer 40,000: Eternal Crusade launches for PC next month, but development on the Xbox One and PS4 versions has been temporarily halted, Bandai Namco announced today.

The PC version of Eternal Crusade, the new online Warhammer shooter from developer Behavior Interactive, will exit Early Access and release in full on September 23. The console versions, however, will now launch "at a later date" that was not specified.

Now Playing: Warhammer 40,000: Eternal Crusade - Gamescom 2016 Trailer

"We are committed to delivering the best experience for the release on September 23, with a PC version that matches our ambitions in terms of content and quality and sets the runway for our free lifetime expansions," said Behavior's Stephen Mulrooney in a press release. "To pause the development of the console versions was a tough decision but will result in an optimized and extended experience when released.”

Disappointing as this might be for some, it is commendable that the console versions won't be rushed out the door.

Eternal Crusade has been available in Steam Early Access for some time now, though it doesn't offer the MMO elements that make up the complete experience. The current version sells for $40, with in-game credits also sold for real-world currency.

The full game promises to let you take part in PvP and PvE battles between four factions (Space Marines, Chaos Space Marines, Orks, and Eldar), with players able to choose to align with 20 different sub-factions. There will also be "hundreds of weapons" along with customization options and accessories "drawn from 29 years of Warhammer 40,000 lore."
