Autumn of 2018 will be hot due to only one Red Dead Redemption 2.
Metro Exodus, the third installment in 4A Games' gritty post-apocalyptic shooter series, was scheduled to hit consoles and PC later this year, but we'll have to wait a bit longer before we dive back into radiation-filled Russian Federation.
"[Deep Silver has] been constantly reviewing the games progress to ensure that [they] deliver a product that gamers and fans of the Metro series want and deserve, as well as keeping an eye on announcements from [their] competitors products". We can now expect to see the game appear in stores between January and March 2019.More news: Authorities Investigate California Explosion as Intentional

As mentioned at the top of the article, there will be some brand new gameplay footage unveiled for Metro: Exodus at this year's upcoming E3 in June.
Relatively little has been seen of it since though, so the delay isn't that big of a surprise. Publisher deep Silver says the game will be a "sandbox survival experience", with players exploring large, non-linear levels in a story that spans an entire year.
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".
Metro Exodus, the third game in the survival/horror/stealth/shooter series and the first to feature a more expansive open world, has been delayed.
