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

Now, the developers have stated that Metro Exodus will only be made available sometime in the first quarter of 2019.

Deep Silver sent out word that the highly anticipated first-person shooter has been pushed back out of its late 2018 release for PC, PS4 and Xbox One, and is now scheduled to release next year in 2019.

Game delays are a very common occurrence in this industry, so it isn't the most surprising thing to hear considering the lack of info we have on the game. It's always a good idea to focus on quality than release a potential broken or underwhelming game.

Metro Exodus has been delayed into Q1 2019, publisher THQ Nordic has announced today.

It seems more a business decision than one spurred on by troubled development, which means developers 4A Games just have extra room to polish things up perfectly before release.

Metro Exodus continues the story of Artyom as he sets off on a journey east to start a new life.

THQ Nordic's report also gave us more details on its action-adventure games Biomutant and Darksiders III, but players might have to keep waiting a bit more. It, however, did say that both the games are "still under evaluation for setting a release date".

Metro developer 4A Games and Deep Silver, the publisher of Metro Last Light and Metro Exodus, acknowledged in a joint statement that the delay was "disappointing news" for Metro fans but said that Metro Exodus' development was still going well. Thanks to the acquisition of Koch Media, the parent company reported a 673% jump in revenue. Wingefors confirmed that the label will also be publishing Wasteland 3 and Bard's Tale IV.
