Metro Exodus comes out a week earlier than announced, on 15th February 2019, to be precise.
The shift in timing means the game no longer launches on the previously-planned date of 22nd February, which would have placed Metro in competition with BioWare's Anthem. Instead, Metro now shares the same release date as two other big games: Crackdown 3 and Far Cry New Dawn (that new one with the neon pink and yet another post-apocalyptic landscape). Talk about jumping out of the frying pan and into the fire! Although judging by what we've seen of Metro Exodus so far, I have high hopes for the title.
Along with the news concerning the shift in dates, we also got a look at the rather chilling opening title sequence for Metro Exodus, which paints a harrowing picture of frozen post-apocalyptic Russia. Looks like we'll all be playing a fun game of "is that a person, or a snowman?"
There's also some bonus good news for Xbox One players, as Metro Exodus has gone gold for the platform. That'll be a nice way to see you through the end of the winter months... into a nuclear winter.
Along with Xbox, Metro Exodus is also due to release on PC and PlayStation 4. Personally, I can't wait to bunker down with this one in February.
