News of the Metro Exodus 2019 release comes courtesy of THQ's financial results, which were shared via press release. But Deep Silver has recently become part of THQ Nordic, which is also welded to the death of THQ.
Deep Silver and developer 4A Games has announced that Metro: Exodus won't be out this autumn as originally planned, and instead will now be targeting an early 2019 release.
Originally announced a year ago, (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. That also means the company needs to discuss when it plans to release major products, so that investors know what to look forward to.
Based on a series of novels by Dmitry Glukhovsky, the Metro games are a grim series of shooters with stealth and survival elements, largely set in Russia's underground rail system after a nuclear apocalypse.
Inspired by the novels of Dmitry Glukhovsky, Metro Exodus continues Artyom's story in the greatest Metro adventure yet. Most expected the game to have a big showing at E3 2018, but that may no longer be the case given the news. This'll be the first time the series will take players outside of Moscow. Were you looking forward to playing Metro Exodus at the end of this year?
