Metro Exodus delayed, won't see light of day until Q1 2019

We just have to wait for the fair in Los Angeles to be able to see Metro Exodus again in action, the game is now awaited for the beginning of 2019 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox One X, PS4 Pro and Windows PC.

"Deep Silver and 4A Games would like to share some important information with you regarding the release date of Metro Exodus". That puts it in the really good sweet spot of January to March, which has been incredibly good for games with arguably less mass market appeal.

THQ Nordic said the two games are "still under evaluation for setting a release date".

THQ Nordic has shared some details about a few of its biggest upcoming games.

The third installment in the Metro series (Metro Exodus) was set to debut later this year, but now the publisher/developer has announced some bad news. THQ Nordic (parent company of publisher Deep Silver) confirmed in an earnings call that the ambitious shooter sequel Metro: Exodus has been pushed back to 2019.

One of our most anticipated games of 2018 will no longer be making an appearance in 2018.

The Metro games are based on a series of novels published by Russian author Dmitry Glukhovsky. The trailer released at last year's E3 showed Artyom falling into a tunnel filled with skeletons, and then coming out to fight a mutated rat beast. Earth has been devastated by a nuclear war over 20 years ago in 2013 and the story continues from Metro: Last Light's "Redemption" ending. Though no specific reason was given, THQ announced that Exodus would now launch sometime in Q1 2019.
