Warhammer 40,000: Boltgun Aiming for 2023 Launch
Warhammer 40,000: Boltgun has set its sights on a release next year, according to Auroch Digital and Focus Entertainment. Boltgun seeks to pay homage to retro shooters when it drops on the PlayStation 4 and 5, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC. The single-player experience puts the player in the boots of a Space Marine.
Classic FPS gunplay merges with the Warhammer 40,000 universe. Ready your Boltgun and jump across the galaxy in combat with the Chaos Space Marines and the forces of Chaos. It’s all very boomer-shooter style, which you can see for yourself in the reveal trailer Focus Entertainment uploaded to their channel earlier today. You can also Wishlist the title on Steam to show your support for the pixelated 90s aesthetic.

As a team of massive Warhammer 40,000 fans, this game has been brewing since 2018, and we’re so excited we can FINALLY shout about it from the rooftops! We can’t wait for players to get their hands on it and to see their reactions.’Nina Adams, Operations Director, Auroch Digital
