Post-apocalyptic sequel Metro Exodus delayed until 2019

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. It looks like part of the decision is down to the busy autumn 2018 release schedule, and presumably, the presence of some big hitters (like Red Dead Redemption 2, for instance), in that schedule.

Based on a series of novels by Dmitry Glukhovsky, the Metro games are a grim series of shooters with stealth and survival elements, largely set in Russia's underground rail system after a nuclear apocalypse.

It has nothing to do with THQ Nordic, but it does at least have an official release date... of 2021. Apparently, the owners of Metro: Exodus chose the second tactic.

Fans of bleak, depressing Russian post-apocalyptic video games have got a long wait ahead of them before they get to play anything new. 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. Were you looking forward to playing Metro Exodus at the end of this year? So fresh details about Metro: Exodus at the moment are expected at gamescom in August 2018.

For those curious, THQ Nordic's other major releases, Biomutant and Darksiders 3, were not given any firm release dates.

Metro Exodus is due out on PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One in Q1 2019.
