A new environment from the game will be shown at E3 next month though and THQ Nordic are insisting that the delay is purely to ensure the game is so they can "deliver a product that gamers and fans of the Metro series want and deserve".

By coincidence, developer GSC Game World has also announced today that it has started work on S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2, which is also a grim first person adventure set in Russian Federation.

A quarter-century after nuclear war devastated the earth, a few thousand survivors still cling to existence beneath the ruins of Moscow, in the tunnels of the Metro. Metro Exodus is the third title in the series and has players go on a cross-country journey through post-apocalyptic Russian Federation sometime after the end of World War III. With this transaction, we took a great step forward to further build a diversified, substantial and relevant player within the growing games industry.

Deep Silver and developer 4A Games has announced that Metro: Exodus won't be out this autumn as originally planned, and instead will now be targeting an early 2019 release.

The third entry in the popular post-apocalyptic series based on Dmitry Glukhovsky's novels had been expected to launch later this year for Xbox One, PS4 and PC, but will now launch sometime during Q1 2019 instead.

Metro Exodus has been delayed into 2019, while the release dates for both Biomutant and Darksiders 3 have yet to be determined.
