Exodus Delayed, Release Shifted to Q1 2019

Originally Metro: Exodus was announced as having a fall, 2018 release window, which Deep Silver confirmed back in December of 2017. Publisher deep Silver says the game will be a "sandbox survival experience", with players exploring large, non-linear levels in a story that spans an entire year. The announcement came from a press release by publisher THQ Nordic.

A new environment from the game will be shown at E3 next month though and THQ Nordic are insisting that the delay is purely to ensure the game is so they can "deliver a product that gamers and fans of the Metro series want and deserve". According to a press release from THQ Nordic, the title has been pushed back into the first quarter 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. Metro Exodus is the third title in the series and has players go on a cross-country journey through post-apocalyptic Russian Federation sometime after the end of World War III.

"The development of Metro Exodus is progressing well; we are all really excited by what we are seeing", said Deep Silver in a statement.

The third entry in the well-regarded first person shooter series opened up Microsoft's pre-E3 event previous year, with a very impressive-looking demonstration.
