After making a spectacular entry in E3 2017, we hoped to get on board with the game this year and journey through its barren landscape to fight scary mutants this year but fate seems to be not with us on this one.

According to their recent statement, the development process is still progressing and they are pretty happy with the finished result. Just because they want us to experience their finest effort when we get to play it, they are taking time to make sure that happens.

So, even though it is for the best but waiting another year for a game is quite tiring after you already spent one in anticipation. However, fans of Metro series must realize that 4A Games had to do this to live up to everyone's expectation and promises to not disappoint you when the game is finally released.

All they are doing on the next eight to nine months is to fully focus on polishing the game players truly deserve. This constant process is getting all the attention it needs and so we need to wait.

Metro Exodus will be available to play on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One once it is released worldwide. Series protagonist Artyom will return for a bigger open-world experience in a post-apocalyptic Moscow and a few fellow survivors will tag along.

Just because they hit us with a bummer, 4A Games promised to reveal a new footage containing brand new gameplay set on a different location of in-game environment we have not seen yet! That's some consolation there.
