Deep Silver has announced that Metro Exodus has been delayed until Q1 2019. According to the publisher, it wants everyone to be able to experience what is the most ambitious Metro game to date and in order to deliver this, it has decided to delay the game.
As Deep Silver announced via a press statement.
“The development of Metro Exodus is progressing well; we are all really excited by what we are seeing. We have been constantly reviewing the games progress to ensure that we deliver a product that gamers and fans of the Metro series want and deserve, as well as keeping an eye on announcements from our competitor products.
We want everyone to be able to experience what is the most ambitious Metro game to date at its absolute best and therefore we have taken the decision to move the release date to Q1 2019.”
Metro Exodus is described as an epic, story-driven first-person shooter from 4A Games that blends deadly combat and stealth with exploration and survival horror in one of the most immersive game worlds ever created.
What’s also interesting here is that Metro Exodus will be one of the first games supporting NVIDIA’s real-time ray tracing technology. The fact that the game has been delayed may also hint at the lack of new high-end GPUs from NVIDIA. We’ve heard rumours that the GTX1180 may not be announced/revealed at Computex 2018 so yeah, we won’t be surprised now by such a thing.
