Metro Exodus Delayed Into 2019; Darksiders 3 and Biomutant Release Dates Still Being Evaluated

According to their execs they now have 54 projects in development, including new signings for inXile Entertainment's Wastelands 3 and The Bard's Tale 4. Metro Exodus was originally supposed to release in Autumn 2018.
Metro Exodus has been delayed into 2019, while the release dates for both Biomutant and Darksiders 3 have yet to be determined.
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".
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". But now, as Artyom, you must flee the Metro and lead a band of Spartan Rangers on an incredible, continent-spanning journey across post-apocalyptic Russian Federation in search of a new life in the East.
We will remind that Metro: Exodus was going to publish Deep Silver, which acquired the rights to the series from the bankrupt THQ. If you had to ask me for the one I was looking most forward to, it would be Metro: Exodus. They'll need it too, considering Exodus is an open-world game instead of the linear adventures that Last Light and 2033 were.
We just have to wait for the fair in Los Angeles to be able to see Metro Exodus again in action, the game is now awaited for the beginning of 2019 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox One X, PS4 Pro and Windows PC.
