THQ Nordic has announced that its post-apocalyptic FPS, Metro Exodus has had its release date pushed back to Q1 next year. Deep Silver is a division of THQ through Koch Media, with the statement saying the following that the publisher is "looking forward to Deep Silver's next key release, Metro Exodus, now expected in Q1 2019".
This time around players can look forward to a more expansive game world, with Deep Silver championing Exodus as a 'sandbox survival experience.' Sounds like a victor to us.
THQ Nordic gave no explanation for the delay, but with the reported size of the game, it wouldn't be surprising to hear that it simply just needed more time in the oven. Originally announced at E3 2017, many hoped that the game would be launching sometime this year, but that won't happen, and fans will instead have to wait until next year to get their hands on a game that aims to be bigger than 2033 and Last Light combined.
Explore the Russian wilderness across vast, non-linear levels and follow a thrilling story-line that spans an entire year through spring, summer and autumn to the depths of nuclear winter. This'll be the first time the series will take players outside of Moscow.
OSCE urges Ukraine to refrain from harassing foreign journalists
Vyshinski is a Ukrainian national who received a Russian passport in 2015 by presidential decree. Security agents also arrested a Ukrainian-born Russian journalist, accusing him of treason.
The scale of Metro Exodus is huge, definitely their most ambitious project yet.
Metro Exodus, the third game in the survival/horror/stealth/shooter series and the first to feature a more expansive open world, has been delayed.
It's unlikely that they'll reveal an actual release date at E3, but then again maybe they will.
