4A Games' Metro Exodus Has Been Delayed into 2019

4A Games' Metro Exodus Has Been Delayed into 2019

It will be the first new entry in the series in almost six years, with 2013's Metro: Last Light being the most recent game.

Metro Exodus is the third title in the series which now has been delayed from its previously planned release to Q1 2019.

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.

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

What's also interesting here is that Metro Exodus will be one of the first games supporting NVIDIA's real-time ray tracing technology.

As Deep Silver announced via a press statement.

The third entry in the well-regarded first person shooter series opened up Microsoft's pre-E3 event a year ago, with a very impressive-looking demonstration.

Originally announced a year ago, (and rumoured long before that), Metro Exodus, developed by 4A Games, will bring the series penchant for grim, claustrophobic locations and grotesque post-apocalyptic creatures screaming to the current generation of platforms.

One of our most anticipated games of 2018 will no longer be making an appearance in 2018.

The delay was confirmed in THQ Nordic's financial report for the first quarter of 2018.

The Metro games are based on a series of novels published by Russian author Dmitry Glukhovsky.

The story of the game will follow the events of Metro: Last Light and Metro 2033.

Excluding the contribution from Koch Media, net sales for the parent company was up 64% while earnings were up 54%.
