Metro Exodus release pushed to 2019

Metro Exodus release pushed to 2019

Hopefully the game will be a polished experience when it launches next year.

Sad news for fans of popular post-apocalyptic FPS franchise Metro.

The development of Metro Exodus is progressing well; we are all really excited by what we are seeing. Metro Exodus was originally slated to appear in stores by the end of 2018.

A firm release date for the game was not given outside of a Q1 2019 window, but we'll be sure to bring you more information on that front as soon as it becomes available. The rest of the announcement reports some pretty bullish results for THQ Nordic, including an increase in net sales of 673%.

Metro Exodus is coming in 2019 to Xbox One, PS4, and PC.

One of our most anticipated games of 2018 will no longer be making an appearance in 2018. The next entry in the series, Metro Exodus, won't arrive this year.


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

By coincidence, developer GSC Game World has also announced today that it has started work on S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2, which is also a grim first person adventure set in Russian Federation.

It's unlikely that they'll reveal an actual release date at E3, but then again maybe they will.

Another trailer released during The Video Game Awards in December 2017, showed more mutated creatures and uncongenial environments.

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

Amid all this disappointing news, Deep Silver also gave fans a reason to cheer.
