Metro Exodus, the next entry in the Metro franchise, has been officially delayed to early 2019, according to a financial report from THQ Nordic. However, it appears 4A made a decision to delay the release date by a few short months to ensure the game is up to snuff.
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. We know that this will be disappointing news for fans that had hoped to play the game this year, but also know that you will appreciate the results that this additional development time and new release date will bring. But now, as Artyom, you must flee the Metro and lead a band of Spartan Rangers on an incredible, continent-spanning journey across post-apocalyptic Russian Federation in search of a new life in the East.

Unfortunately for Sara, her stunning gown got caught on her heel later during the proceedings - forcing her to free it. As a matter of fact, Stewart has been vocal about one of Cannes' most outdated rules for a couple of years.
"The development of Metro Exodus is progressing well; we are all really excited by what we are seeing", said Deep Silver in a statement. 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. With E3 2018 right around the corner, THQ has promised that brand new gameplay from the upcoming title will be shown off, so fans will have that to look forward to as they wait for the calendar to turn to 2019.
Metro Exodus is due out on PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One in Q1 2019.
