THQ Nordic, which recently acquired Metro Exodus publisher Deep Silver and its parent company Koch Media, announced in their earnings report today that Metro Exodus has been pushed to Q1 2019.
The title was originally expected to release in the third quarter of this year, putting it around games like Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 and Red Dead Redemption 2. Though THQ Nordic did not expound on the reasons for the delay, Q1 2019 is thus far a less crowded time for the game to release.
We took a deep dive on Metro Exodus just a little while ago, so you can see how one of the most exciting games coming out of last year’s E3 has been shaping up since.
Whatever the reason for the delay, the new release plan will likely serve the game a lot better. The game will only benefit from the extra time.
