Post-apocalyptic sequel Metro Exodus delayed until 2019

Metro Exodus is described as 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.

This means that the game won't be in stores until at least January next year, and may not turn up until March at the latest. In "Metro Exodus", player-controlled Artyom escapes the underground Moscow setting of the previous games to explore the ravaged continent. The rest of the announcement reports some pretty bullish results for THQ Nordic, including an increase in net sales of 673%. The next entry in the series, Metro Exodus, won't arrive this year.

4A Games states however that the "development of Metro Exodus is progressing well", and hints at the fact that this has been a choice more due to business reasons rather than to technical issues met in the process. They're a very hard decision to make, but they should mean consumers receive a better game when it does eventually release, and with Metro Exodus looking so promising? Metro 2033 and Metro Last Light are the first two games in the series, with both of the games receiving critical acclaim. The developer will reveal its lineup at Gamescom in Cologne (August 21-25) and PAX West in Seattle (September 1-4).

DSOGaming is reporting that Deepsolver has announced that the upcoming Metro Exodus has been delayed until 2019.

As E3 approaches we're all looking for updates on numerous titles a year ago first introduced. "Koch Media is by far our largest acquisition to date and confirms our focus on creating value for our shareholders", said founder and CEO Lars Wingefors. Wingefors confirmed that the label will also be publishing Wasteland 3 and Bard's Tale IV.
