For the second year in a row, Metro Exodus is shown at the Xbox E3 Media Briefing. This around we got a bit of a gameplay trailer along with the release date. Metro Exodus will release on February 22nd, 2019 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
It’s set in the year 2036, a quarter-century after a nuclear war devastated the earth, a few thousand survivors still cling to existence beneath the ruins of Moscow, in the tunnels of the Metro.
For more E3 news, stay tuned.

Deep Silver and 4A Games have shared some important information in regards to the release date of their upcoming game, Metro Exodus. Unfortunately it is getting pushed back to Q1 2019, but fortunately, this is due to the promise of delivering a better product.
The Press Release states, “The development of Metro Exodus is progressing well; we are all really excited by what we are seeing. We have been constantly reviewing the games 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.”
Fans can expect a Metro Exodus presence at E3 next month in the form of brand new gameplay from a never before seen game environment.
Of course, it sucks whenever a game is delayed but I always go with the line of thinking that if it makes the end product better, then it’s worth it.

Publisher THQ Nordic has purchased Koch Media, which owns popular franchises such as Metro, Dead Island and Saints Row. Koch Media of course runs Deep Silver, the publisher for Metro and Dead Island, Dambuster Studios who developed Homefront: The Revolution and the Saints Row developer, Volition. The €121 million deal will see all these now fly the THQ Nordic banner.
In 2012, THQ filed for bankruptcy and as a result, dissolved the following year. Koch Media went on to buy Volition and the publishing rights to the Metro franchise. Nordic Games re-branded to THQ Nordic in 2016 and also bought a number of THQ IPs. Many THQ IPs will be reunited because of this acquisition.
Koch Media CEO, Dr. Klemens Kundratitz, said, “I strongly believe that THQ Nordic is a great strategic fit with Koch Media. In addition to having long experience within games development and publishing, THQ Nordic has the skills, willingness and capital to deliver growth in the future.”
It is said that there are no plans to restructure suggesting that layoffs would be unlikely. For more gaming industry news, keep your eyes open and fixed to the Conquest website, but maybe take a break once in a while too.
