In its press release, THQ Nordic did not provide a rationale or explanation for why the game was delayed.
The third entry in the popular post-apocalyptic series based on Dmitry Glukhovsky's novels had been expected to launch later this year for Xbox One, PS4 and PC, but will now launch sometime during Q1 2019 instead.
The decision was apparently taken because "we want everyone to be able to experience what is the most ambitious Metro game to date at its absolute best", which reassures us as to 4A Games' commitment to quality.
This time around players can look forward to a more expansive game world, with Deep Silver championing Exodus as a 'sandbox survival experience.' Sounds like a victor to us.
A quarter-century after nuclear war devastated the earth, a few thousand survivors still cling to existence beneath the ruins of Moscow, in the tunnels of the Metro.
Metro Exodus, which first appeared on stage back at E3 2017, was due out some time in autumn of 2018. But now, as Artyom, you must flee the Metro and lead a band of Spartan Rangers on an incredible, continent-spanning journey across post-apocalyptic Russian Federation in search of a new life in the East.
We would also like to take this opportunity to confirm that at E3 in June we will be revealing some brand new gameplay from a never before seen game environment for you to enjoy.
