Metro Exodus has gone gold, some two months ahead of eagerly anticipated shooter’s launch. With the game now done and dusted, 4A Games and publisher Deep Silver have agreed to launch Metro Exodus one week earlier than previously planned.
The post-apocalyptic sequel to Metro: Last Light, Metro Exodus will now launch on February 15th for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. It’s probably a smart move, shifting the launch date away from February 22nd alongside BioWare’s Anthem.
“Our fans have been waiting patiently for Metro Exodus ever since we announced the title at E3 2017,” said Klemens Kundratitz, CEO at Deep Silver. “We had previously delayed the release date to ensure 4A Games had the time to deliver their ambitious vision for the game, but now we’re delighted to confirm that Metro Exodus has ‘gone gold’ and we are able to bring the release date forward to the 15th February 2019.”
To celebrate the news, 4A Games has revealed the main title sequence for Metro Exodus, created in conjunction with Game of Thrones and Westworld title sequence creators Elastic.
“We were absolutely thrilled to be contacted by the team at Deep Silver and 4A Games to create this Main Title Sequence,” said Andy Hall, creative director at Elastic. “It’s the type of project we love. Once we had been immersed in the game, we essentially lived in this frozen and terrifying landscape for many, many weeks…we are delighted with the final film.”
Pluck seven days off that calendar then as we’ll now be able to play Metro Exodus from February 15th.
