Exodus Delayed, Release Shifted to Q1 2019

The announcement came from a press release by publisher THQ Nordic.

Like the previous Metro games, Exodus stars Artyom, who is fleeing the ruins of the Moscow Metro with a band of survivors.

THQ didn't give any reason for the delay, although presumably as it's only been punted back a few months it's nothing too seriously.

Metro Exodus, the third installment in 4A Games' gritty post-apocalyptic shooter series, was scheduled to hit consoles and PC later this year, but we'll have to wait a bit longer before we dive back into radiation-filled Russian Federation. They're a very hard decision to make, but they should mean consumers receive a better game when it does eventually release, and with Metro Exodus looking so promising?

"The development of Metro Exodus is progressing well; we are all really excited by what we are seeing", 4A Games and Deep Silver said in a statement on the game's website. If you'd like to check out the series for yourself, players can experience the most up to date versions of the original two titles with Metro 2033 Redux and Metro Last Light Redux on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Both games were not announced with any release dates or even a release window, and this will unfortunately continue to be the case for a while. The developer will reveal its lineup at Gamescom in Cologne (August 21-25) and PAX West in Seattle (September 1-4).

Metro Exodus is slated to launch sometime in 2019. The silver lining is that it is still scheduled for the first quarter of the year.

Excluding the contribution from Koch Media, net sales for the parent company was up 64% while earnings were up 54%.
