4A Games’ third entry in the Metro franchise will be launching a week earlier than initially planned.

Announced in a press release surrounding the game’s “gold” status, Metro Exodus will now be launching on February 15th, 2019.

“Our fans have been waiting patiently for Metro Exodus ever since we announced the title at E3 2017,” said Deep Silver CEO Klemens Kundratitz.

“We had previously delayed the release date to ensure 4A Games had the time to deliver their ambitious vision for the game, but now we’re delighted to confirm that Metro Exodus has ‘gone gold’ and we are able to bring the release date forward to the 15th February 2019.”

Deep Silver also announced that Metro Exodus would see a significant amount of gameplay trailers releasing up to its launch date. We don’t particularly know that much about the game outside of its new open-world approach, but it certainly looks like a blast.
