Exodus has been delayed into early 2019

The third entry in the popular post-apocalyptic series based on Dmitry Glukhovsky's novels had been expected to launch later this year for Xbox One, PS4 and PC, but will now launch sometime during Q1 2019 instead. Metro Exodus was originally supposed to release in Autumn 2018.

THQ Nordic gave no explanation for the delay, but with the reported size of the game, it wouldn't be surprising to hear that it simply just needed more time in the oven.

Metro Exodus will make some substantial changes from its predecessors, including more side quests, the removal of the military ammunition economy system, a more open world, and a decreased focus on the titular underground metro. The silver lining is that it is still scheduled for the first quarter of the year.

Like the previous Metro games, Exodus stars Artyom, who is fleeing the ruins of the Moscow Metro with a band of survivors. They began as self-published online works in 2002, and did not appear in English until a short time before the original game was released.

Killed in Explosion at Office Building in California
Unconfirmed initial witness reports said that the blast may have been a gas explosion, but Orange County Fire Authority Capt. There were early reports that a vehicle had crashed into the building, but that turned out not to be the case.

It has nothing to do with THQ Nordic, but it does at least have an official release date... of 2021.

Metro Exodus is a story-driven first person shooter that blends deadly combat and stealth with exploration and survival horror in one of the most immersive game worlds ever created.

As mentioned at the top of the article, there will be some brand new gameplay footage unveiled for Metro: Exodus at this year's upcoming E3 in June.

It's unlikely that they'll reveal an actual release date at E3, but then again maybe they will.
