Metro Exodus goes gold, release date pushed forward

Metro Exodus is a post-apocalyptic first-person shooter which has garnered a lot of interest in recent months. The game is a sequel to Metro: Last Light which was ported to Xbox One a few years ago. Years after nuclear war devastated Earth, a few survivors still cling to existence beneath the ruins of Moscow. They have struggled against the lethal elements and fought mutated beasts. Now, in Metro Exodus, they must flee the underground tunnels in search of a new life in the East.

Today, developer 4A Games announced that the release has been pushed forward a few days to February 15, 2019. The title was originally scheduled to launch on February 22, alongside every game ever made it seems like at this point. It is a popular release date. Metro Exodus has gone gold so that triggered the new release date. However, it's more likely that the team wants to avoid competition from other titles.

  • "Today, developer 4A Games announced that the release has been pushed back a few days to February 15, 2019. The title was originally scheduled to launch on February 22....." Should probably say pushed "forward", like in the title.
  • Yep, unless they made a mistake on the February part and truly meant to say "pushed back to March 15th". Hard to say, too because both Feb 15 and March 15 are Fridays... Don't games normally come out on Tuesdays?
  • It seems unlikely that the date would be pushed back if it's Gold, I'm guessing pushed forward is what they meant.
