Metro Exodus delayed into 2019

During THQ Nordic’s earnings call today, the company announced that Metro Exodus has been delayed into 2019.

The game’s official Twitter account also reiterated this message this morning. “We want everyone to experience the most ambitious Metro game to date at its absolute best,” reads the tweet. “Therefore we’ve moved the release date to Q1 2019 We know this will be disappointing news for fans, but at E3 we will be revealing lots of new gameplay from a never before seen environment.”

The studio promises that it will be “worth the wait” when it does launch.

Metro Exodus was revealed on Microsoft’s E3 stage last year with a full gameplay trailer, which you can view below.
