Metro Exodus was originally set to be released in Autumn of this year. However, Deep Silver and 4A Games recently announced that the game has been delayed until the first quarter of 2019. They want to continue polishing the game to deliver the best user experience possible. In Metro Exodus, the player takes control of Artyom and must lead a band of Spartan Rangers across a hostile, post-apocalyptic Russia to search for greener pastures in the East. Earlier this year, 4A Games also announced their collaboration with NVIDIA to feature the company's RTX real-time ray tracing technology in Metro Exodus. We'll get to see it in action at E3 this year as both Deep Silver and 4A games have confirmed that they will be releasing some new gameplay of the game at the venue.

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. We know that this will be disappointing news for fans that had hoped to play the game this year, but also know that you will appreciate the results that this additional development time and new release date will bring.

I’m just hoping the game will be playable in “normal” Metro graphics like the previous games. They will have horrible sales if it is only playable in RTX with the next family of Nvidia cards.

Expected to be honest , especially since this is supposed to be pseudo-open world.

RTX is probably going to be another option to toggle, otherwise, you can either disable it or drop down to the DX12 native one.

But still it should run like shit on anything in the market.

Imho, good news overall. So many companies try to rush (its not like its not understandable, though) and fail afterwards.

I'm aching for a new Metro game, but I can wait a bit more. At the very least, it won't be rushed...

Don't overestimate the importance of RTX in this game. From what we saw earlier in a demo, it really wasn't all that fantastic or a game changer.

Its gonna be a slider or a toggle in Exodus and probably one that'll make you wonder if its on or not. Something like Hairworks in TW3, really... a hidden push for us to buy the newest gen of GPU because of all the performance we lose.

I can respect their decision. A polished game is always better than an rough, unfinished release for all.
