Originally announced previous year, (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.
We will remind that Metro: Exodus was going to publish Deep Silver, which acquired the rights to the series from the bankrupt THQ.
THQ Nordic confirmed this in their company's recent financial report which shows us that the release window for the game has just been changed to 2019 but without any explanation or a reason why it happened.
Metro Exodus is an epic, story-driven first person shooter from 4A Games that blends deadly combat and stealth with exploration and survival horror in one of the most immersive game worlds ever created.
THQ Nordic said the two games are "still under evaluation for setting a release date". Players will once again take control of Artyom, a resistance fighter in an alternate version of Russian Federation that has been decimated by nuclear fallout. Were you looking forward to playing Metro Exodus at the end of this year? The demo 4A Games showed at E3 a year ago was a major highlight of the press conferences, despite so little being known about the game. Both titles are expected in 2018, though, and THQ Nordic did not say otherwise.
Metro Exodus is due out on PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One in Q1 2019.
