Today, Deep Silver announced that Metro Exodus has been pushed back to 2019. The game is a post-apocalyptic first-person shooter which takes place in Russia. In order to increase the quality of the experience, team decided to push the game back a few months.

We have been constantly reviewing the game's 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.

Hopefully the game will be a polished experience when it launches next year. It's always a good idea to focus on quality than release a potential broken or underwhelming game.

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, fought mutated beasts, encountered paranormal horrors, and suffered the flames of civil war. Now, in Metro Exodus, they must flee the underground tunnels and lead a band of "Spartan Rangers" on an incredible, continent-spanning journey across post-apocalyptic Russia in search of a new life in the East. Their success falls upon you.
