Metro Exodus release pushed to 2019
The upcoming open world action title needs additional development time
Deep Silver and 4A Games have announced that the upcoming open world action game Metro Exodus will not make its 2018 release date schedule, and will now ship in Q1 2019.
"The development of Metro Exodus is progressing well; we are all really excited by what we are seeing. 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," said the company in a statement.
"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."
Metro Exodus was announced last year at E3, and is confirmed to once again appear at E3 2018 next month.
