Metro Exodus Gets Delayed Into Q1 2019

Ismael LynchMay 17, 2018

According to the announcement made by THQ Nordic, highly anticipated first-person shooter Metro: Exodus has been delayed for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Notably, that's 439 percent more profit and 673 percent more revenue than the company earned in the same quarter a year prior.

While Deep Silver announced that Shenmue III was being delayed until 2019.

A year ago at E3 2017, 4A Games and Deep Silver shared a glimpse at some breathtaking gameplay from their upcoming title, Metro: Exodus, the much anticipated third installment in the Metro franchise.

There's no further explanation of the delay.

A thread over on ResetEra points towards a THQ Nordic investor report [Swedish] which seems to be the first place that indicated that the release date for the game had been pushed back. That stupendous figure is thanks largely to the purchase of Koch Media, which was consolidated in February this year, just in time for the successful launch of Kingdom Come: Deliverance.

Metro Exodus is due to release on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

It's unlikely that they'll reveal an actual release date at E3, but then again maybe they will.

Originally Metro: Exodus was announced as having a fall, 2018 release window, which Deep Silver confirmed back in December of 2017. This'll be the first time the series will take players outside of Moscow.

If a developer has to tell a publisher a game isn't ready, they're effecting telling them it's going to cost more money.

"The development of Metro Exodus is progressing well; we are all really excited by what we are seeing", their statement read. Both games are developed by InXile, a California-based studio founded by the industry legend Brian Fargo. "I'm also happy to inform that Deep Silver will be publishing the upcoming RPG's Wasteland 3 and Bards Tale IV".
