Metro Exodus delayed, won't see light of day until Q1 2019

According to the developer, the Metro Exodus release date for the PS4, Xbox One and PC has now been postponed to the first-quarter of 2019.

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. 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? "We want everyone to experience the most ambitious Metro game to date at its absolute best", reads the tweet.

THQ Nordic said the two games are "still under evaluation for setting a release date". While delays are never fun to deal with, typically it results in a solid game when it finally does release. There were expectations that THQ Nordic would reveal more details at the E3 this year, but given the delay, it is probably out of the question now. The title takes place several years after Metro: Last Light and will continue the story of Artyom and another character, Anna, who is now Artyom's wife. This marks the first time that the series has ever taken players outside of Moscow, and levels will be non-linear. Then another was shown in December at The Game Awards.

Packers Not Expected To Sign Dez Bryant
Green Bay did take three receivers in the draft, but letting the rookies sit behind Bryant for a year makes sense. Dez Bryant most infamous catch in his entire career was actually a non-catch that has been argued for years now.

While THQ Nordic won't be at E3 this year, meaning we'll likely get no other information about Darksiders 3 and Biomutant, every day that the dev team isn't pressured for a release date at least means that the teams can spend more time polishing them up. The footage will also contain a look at one of the brand new environments within Metro: Exodus.

During the three months ending March 31st, THQ Nordic (née Nordic Games) reportedly earned roughly 225.9 million SEK (~$25.9 million USD) in profits on revenues of 632.9 million SEK (~$78.9 million USD). Both games are developed by InXile, a California-based studio founded by the industry legend Brian Fargo.
