When is the Metro Exodus Steam release date?

When is the Metro Exodus Steam release date? This open-world first-person shooter from Deep Silver and 4A Games has been an Epic Games Store exclusive for PC players for some time now, but it wasn’t planned to be an exclusive forever. When will you be able to play Metro Exodus on Steam?

To understand the Metro Exodus Steam release date, we need to first go back to its original launch on the Epic Games Store. The announcement of the game being an Epic Games Store exclusive was upsetting to many and it even caused Valve to publicly respond to the move on the game’s Steam Store page.

Notice: Sales of Metro Exodus have been discontinued on Steam due to a publisher decision to make the game exclusive to another PC store.

The developer and publisher have assured us that all prior sales of the game on Steam will be fulfilled on Steam, and Steam owners will be able to access the game and any future updates or DLC through Steam.

We think the decision to remove the game is unfair to Steam customers, especially after a long pre-sale period. We apologize to Steam customers that were expecting it to be available for sale through the February 15th release date, but we were only recently informed of the decision and given limited time to let everyone know.

The exclusivity period was later explained by the publisher, stating that the Metro Exodus Steam release date should be one year later in February 2020.

So, when will you be able to get Metro Exodus on Steam? Fortunately, the official Twitter page for the game has confirmed its launch date.

An update from the game’s creators has stated that the Metro Exodus Steam release date will be February 15, 2020.

If nothing changes, it should be launching on Steam (and on other storefronts) on February 15, so those looking forward to playing the game on Valve’s platform will be able to get their hands on it sooner rather than later.
