[ORIGINAL STORY] Product pages for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of Warhammer 40K Inquisitor - Martyr have gone up today on Amazon.com, with a release date of May 15th. This doesn't seem like your usual placeholder at all and may be a correct date; it is currently unclear whether this would apply to the PC version as well.

We've recently had a lengthy conversation with PR Manager Gergo Vas, so make sure to check it if you want more information. The game is already available on Steam Early Access, by the way.
