Metro Exodus will not be releasing this year according to THQ Nordic. In its latest financial summaries, THQ Nordic confirmed that Metro Exodus will be moving from a Q4 2018 release window to a Q1 2019 release. There’s no specific date set as of yet, and we don’t really expect there to be one anytime soon.
Deep Silver has released a statement:
The development of Metro Exodus is progressing well; we are all really excited by what we are seeing. We have been constantly reviewing the game’s progress to ensure that we deliver a product that gamers and fans of the Metro series want and deserve, as well as keeping an eye on announcements from our competitor products. We want everyone to be able to experience what is the most ambitious Metro game to date at its absolute best and therefore we have taken the decision to move the release date to Q1 2019.
We know that this will be disappointing news for fans that had hoped to play the game this year, but also know that you will appreciate the results that this additional development time and new release date will bring. 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.
Thank you for your patience and understanding, we look forward to sharing more with you in June.
The good news, then, is that we will at least see a bit more of Metro Exodus at E3 2018. It’s just a shame that we won’t be enjoying it on our own consoles at home. I guess there’s other games to waste the time away with…
