The press release is worded rather interesting, with the PR noting that Deep Silver has been "keeping an eye" on the announcements from their competitors and monitoring the release windows for when other FPS games will launch.
Bad news, Metro fans: the release date for the upcoming Metro Exodus has been pushed back from fall 2018 to Q1 2019. They note that since this is the most ambitious Metro game in the series - and that they want it to be the best that it can be - they chose to move the release date back by a couple of quarters. According to the press release, development is going well, and in E3 this June Metro Exodus gets a new gameplay video from "a never before seen game environment".
Metro Exodus, which first appeared on stage back at E3 2017, was due out some time in autumn of 2018.
Are you disappointed by this news?
The third entry in the well-regarded first person shooter series opened up Microsoft's pre-E3 event previous year, with a very impressive-looking demonstration. Metro Exodus is the third title in the series and has players go on a cross-country journey through post-apocalyptic Russian Federation sometime after the end of World War III. Players once again assume command of 26-year-old Artyom, who teams up with the Spartan Rangers to escape Moscow and head off to the far east.
Metro Exodus is coming in 2019 to Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
