Metro: Exodus, the third instalment of the Metro video game franchise has been set back to early 2019 rather than the initial late 2018 release.
4A Games announced the news today:
“The development of ‘Metro Exodus’ is progressing well; we are all really excited by what we are seeing,” the developers wrote on the official website. “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.”
Metro: Exodus is a first person shooter based on Dmitry Glukhovsky’s novel and is set in cold Moscow where survivors of a nuclear war are forced to live underground in tunnels. Of course, underground, there’s plenty of danger lurking!
