  • Metro Exodus Delayed Until Early 2019

    Metro Exodus
    We thought that Metro Exodus would be released in Q3 of 2018. We thought that because up until this week, that was factually correct. Alas, we must now wait until Q1 2019 to play the game. Let's find out just why that is.

    Deep Silver provided a statement as to why the game was pushed back until next year.
    The development of Metro Exodus is progressing well; we are all really excited by what we are seeing. We have been constantly reviewing the games 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.

    I think a big takeaway here is that they've been keeping an eye on the competition. If Metro Exodus were to release later this year, it would be going up against games like Red Dead Redemption 2, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, Spider-Man, and the list goes on. We all know how big of a push publishers make for new game releases just prior to the holiday season kicking in to full force.
