Metro Exodus, the upcoming FPS from THQ Nordic has been delayed. Originally set to be released in 2018, the title will, unfortunately, be pushed back to Q1 of 2019.
The delay was revealed in THQ’s financial briefing: “The forthcoming AAA title Metro Exodus, hosted by THQ Nordic studio Deep Silver is expected to launch in the first quarter of 2019. Earlier messages were that it would launch in 2018”. I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again. Delays suck but having a shitty unpolished game sucks even more – and as of right now, it seems that there is far more market space for an FPS early 2019 than holiday season of 2018.
Thoughts? Let us know down in the comments below. In other news, expect a much larger script in Metro Exodus than both 2033 and Last Light combined:
“To put this into perspective, Metro Exodus’ script is larger than both 2033’s and Last Last’s combined, including all DLC. We will encounter new societies, religions, ways of life, environments, monsters, and mutants. Some will seem familiar in some ways, and some will be completely new. As life continued after the apocalypse, it evolved in different ways outside Moscow. Some areas are irradiated in similar ways to Moscow, and some areas are clear of any toxins or destruction.”
Metro Exodus releases 2019 for Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
