The newest entry in 4A Games post-apocalyptic “Metro” series, “Metro Exodus,” has been delayed by several months. Originally slated for a Fall 2018 release, the game is now targeting an early 2019 release in stores to give them more time to polish the game which will show off more footage at E3. Plans are still in place for a PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One release.
Another game that’s not coming soon? “Borderlands 3”. Despite an apparent retail site listing leak the other weak hinting that the game might be out in the immediate future, developer Gearbox Software said on a conference call recently it won’t be showing the game at this year’s E3 and hints the company’s concentration is elsewhere at present.
One game that isn’t being delayed though is “Battlefield V” with “The Daily Show” host Trevor Noah set to emcee the live reveal of the game on May 23rd at 1pm US-PT on YouTube and Battlefield.com. The broadcast will also be on Twitch and Mixer.com.
EA is smartly approaching the game’s marketing from a different angle as they’re championing the title’s “compelling single-player stories” along with its “large-scale multiplayer that spans across multiple maps and modes” – a counterpoint to reports that this Fall’s “Call of Duty: Black Ops 4” will be multiplayer only.
