Metro Exodus Delayed To Release In 2019, Confirms THQ Nordic

Metro Exodus is the third title in the series which now has been delayed from its previously planned release to Q1 2019. The game was set to release this year on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

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.

The report reads:

I’m also happy to inform that Deep Silver will be publishing the upcoming RPG’s Wasteland 3 and Bards Tale IV. Both games are developed by InXile, a California-based studio founded by the industry legend Brian Fargo. Along with them, we are all looking forward to Deep Silver’s next key release, Metro Exodus, now expected in Q1 2019.

Exodus was announced at E3 2017 with a trailer that showed us our favorite Artyom like the previous game but in a tunnel with skeletons. Publisher Deep Silver also said the game will be a sandbox survival experience.

Other than that there will be no multiplayer and coop in the game because of the story. Which Jon Bloch of developer 4A games explained by saying that the reason there’s no multiplayer is so that players are immersed in the world, and don’t skip the game’s actual story in order to play multiplayer.

For PC users, Jon Bloch says that the PC version of the game will be breathtaking but will blow your cards as their top priority is visual quality. Console game should not worry as well because devs are planning to add HDR and native 4k for PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X.

In other news, THQ Nordic acquired Koch Media for €121M earlier this year and with it, the company now has exclusive rights of Metro, Dead Island, Saints Row and more.
