Long overdue Warhammer 40K: Space Marine 2 finally announced

Warhammer Space Marine 2 Captain Titus cinematic

In development at Saber Interactive

Our minds may be turning to mush as the night drags on, but there’s still an occasional spark of life. Announced at the 2021 Game Awards, in between dozens upon dozens of other Warhammer 40,000 video game adaptations in recent years, we’re actually getting Space Marine 2. This one is such a long time coming. I mean, it’s been a decade!

Captain Titus is back for Space Marine 2, and he’s ready to cut down some Tyranid. The teaser trailer doesn’t tell us anything more than we need to know. It’s cathartic af. And before you click away, make sure you stick around for a gameplay snippet at the end.

Hold at bay the horrors of the galaxy in epic battles on far-flung planets. Uncover dark secrets and drive back the everlasting night to prove your ultimate loyalty to humanity.”

For those of you who missed the original Ork-blasting action-shooter, at the time, it was easily one of the better 40K adaptations — and it’s still fondly remembered to this day. If you’re curious, the old PC version recently got an Anniversary Edition upgrade on Steam.

Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine 2 is in development at Saber Interactive and Focus Home with plans for PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X/S. The companies haven’t shared many details yet, and on that note, the release date is listed as “TBA” — but just based on the brief footage, this is exactly in line with what I’d want from a sequel. Let me be unhinged.

Now, if only we could get a return to form for Dawn of War
