Martin Wahlund, CEO of Fatshark, said, "Being passionate fans of the Warhammer IP, we’ve always wanted to create a Warhammer sequel that both stayed true to the beautifully dark atmosphere of the world but also brought new ideas and experiences for players.

Jesper Kyd, the musician who worked on Warhammer: The End Times - Vermintide's soundtrack has come back to do the same for its upcoming sequel.
