Metro Exodus Has Been Postponed Until Q1 2019

Metro Exodus delayed into 2019 2

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.

Metro Exodus is being delayed into 2019. They began as self-published online works in 2002, and did not appear in English until a short time before the original game was released.

Metro Exodus was first announced and shown off during the Microsoft's E3 2017 press conference. In "Metro Exodus", player-controlled Artyom escapes the underground Moscow setting of the previous games to explore the ravaged continent.

"The development of Metro Exodus is progressing well; we are all really excited by what we are seeing", their statement read. It was also announced that the game would release at some point in 2018. The title takes place several years after Metro: Last Light and will continue the story of Artyom and another character, Anna, who is now Artyom's wife. Hopefully the delay will give 4A Games more time to deliver the exciting, terrifying final product worthy of its source material. "We would also like to take this opportunity to confirm that at E3 in June we will be revealing some brand new gameplay from a never before seen game environment for you to enjoy", the publisher said. In sad news for anyone looking forward to braving the irradiated cruelty of post-apocalypse Russian Federation, that's now slipped roughly six months to the first quarter of 2019.

Earlier this year, the company released Kingdom Come Deliverance via Deep Silver.

Elsewhere in the report, the publisher confirmed that Deep Silver will be publishing Wasteland 3, and The Bard's Tale 4, both in development at inXile Entertainment.
