Metro Exodus delayed until 2019

Metro Exodus, the third game in the survival/horror/stealth/shooter series and the first to feature a more expansive open world, has been delayed.

THQ Nordic confirmed this in their company's recent financial report which shows us that the release window for the game has just been changed to 2019 but without any explanation or a reason why it happened. Koch Media, Deep Silver's publisher, acquired THQ Nordic back in February, and stated at the time that they wanted the studio's games to release as planned with minimal interference in their workflow process. That also means the company needs to discuss when it plans to release major products, so that investors know what to look forward to.

What's also interesting here is that Metro Exodus will be one of the first games supporting NVIDIA's real-time ray tracing technology.

Fans of bleak, depressing Russian post-apocalyptic video games have got a long wait ahead of them before they get to play anything new. With this transaction, we took a great step forward to further build a diversified, substantial and relevant player within the growing games industry.

Metro Exodus will pick up about 3 years after the events of Metro 2033 and 2 years after 2033's follow-up, Last Light. Hopefully, even if Exodus is a 2019 release, the developers give fans a little more information in the coming months. Both titles are expected in 2018, though, and THQ Nordic did not say otherwise.
