Metro Exodus is No Longer a 2018 Game, Delayed Into Next Year

Metro Exodus is No Longer a 2018 Game, Delayed Into Next Year

Metro Exodus, the third installment in 4A Games' gritty post-apocalyptic shooter series, was scheduled to hit consoles and PC later this year, but we'll have to wait a bit longer before we dive back into radiation-filled Russian Federation. Metro Exodus was originally slated to appear in stores by the end of 2018. Deep Silver has announced that it has delayed Metro Exodus, which now won't see the light of day until Q1 2019.

That's according to an earnings call by publishers THQ Nordic, who stated that the shooter is now anticipated to release in the early months of 2019.

"We know that this will be disappointing news for fans that had hoped to play the game this year, but also know that you will appreciate the results that this additional development time and new release date will bring", they continued. They note that since this is the most ambitious Metro game in the series - and that they want it to be the best that it can be - they chose to move the release date back by a couple of quarters.

"The development of Metro Exodus is progressing well; we are all really excited by what we are seeing, said 4A Games".

This means that the game won't be in stores until at least January next year, and may not turn up until March at the latest.

When Metro Exodus launches, it will be available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.

'I'm also happy to inform that Deep Silver will be publishing the upcoming RPG's Wasteland 3 and Bards Tale IV. It will be the first new entry in the series in almost six years, with 2013's Metro: Last Light being the most recent game.
