Metro Exodus has been stated to be bigger than both the previous games combined and will be more open world than ever and It's not every day you hear the terms Open world and Survival Horror in the same sentence so clearly, this game is going to be a massive deal when it comes out. Unfortunately with such ambition comes obstacles and it seems the developers of this soon to be monster of a game Deep Silver Games have hit one. Metro Exodus has been delayed until the first quarter of 2019. In a recent statement, Deep Silver stated:
"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."
To be honest, if the game needs more time to be the best game it can be then we as fans should be fine with it! It's a sign that the developers are putting in effort and time into their craft. Be sure to check out the trailer for Metro Exodus below:
