Wah, suay sia, looks like Metro fans will have to be patient for one whole year. Si bei shag. The next sequel to 4A Games’ Metro series, Metro Exodus has been postponed from its original fall 2018 release date. THQ Nordic, the parent company of Koch Media which owns Metro publisher Deep Silver confirmed in an earnings release today that Metro Exodus is now slated to ship in the first quarter of 2019.
Deep Silver and 4A Games released a statement on their website.
The development of Metro Exodus is progressing well; we are all really excited by what we are seeing. We have been constantly reviewing the games progress to ensure that we deliver a product that gamers and fans of the Metro series want and deserve, as well as keeping an eye on announcements from our competitor products. We want everyone to be able to experience what is the most ambitious Metro game to date at its absolute best and therefore we have taken the decision to move the release date to Q1 2019. We know this will be disappointing news for fans that had hoped to play the game this year, but also know that you will appreciate the results that this additional development time and new release date will bring.
Metro Exodus was announced at E3 2017 and sends players beyond the confines of post-apocalyptic Moscow on a yearlong, cross-continental journey. Got some Fallout vibes sia. Players play as Artyom as he and a band of survivors search for new life in the east. The game will feature a bigger, more open-world experience than the previous entries of the series.
Deep Silver and 4A Games also mentioned that there will be new game-play being showed during E3 2018. So it’s time to prepare the hype. At least got some videos to watch on it soon mah. Metro Exodus is to be released for PlayStation 4, PC and Xbox One.
