THQ Nordic has stated in a financial report that Metro: Exodus, which was planned for a Q4 2018 release, will now be pushed back into Q1 2019.

While it's noted that "this will be disappointing news for fans that had hoped to play the game this year", the statement adds that "you will appreciate the results that this additional development time and new release date will bring".

"The development of Metro Exodus is progressing well; we are all really excited by what we are seeing", their statement read. The announcement came from a press release by publisher THQ Nordic.

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.

"Deep Silver and 4A Games would like to share some important information with you regarding the release date of Metro Exodus".

The third entry in the well-regarded first person shooter series opened up Microsoft's pre-E3 event a year ago, with a very impressive-looking demonstration.

If you're experiencing any déjà vu at the news it's probably because S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 was already announced back in 2010, but GSC Game World went bust before they had time to finish it.

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.

Metro Exodus will now launch on PS4, Xbox One and PC in early 2019.
