A short letter to the Metro fans - past; present; and future...


Metro Redux. You may have heard of it... even though you probably shouldn't have!

We could issue a 'We do not comment on rumour and speculation' statement and pretend this never happened. They're pretty boring to read. They're also pretty boring to write.

So we're going to comment on rumour and speculation instead.

Is Metro Redux real?

Yes. We never made any secret of 4A's desire to bring Metro to the latest generation of console hardware.

But what you saw leaked was taken from an old, internal planning presentation, containing some nuggets of truth but a lot of hypothetical ideas and place holder material.

(Eagle eyed fans will recognize the artwork on the 'packshot' as the art from the original Russian edition of the Metro 2033 novel. And that 'logo' is just the old Metro 2033 logo with the '2033' scrubbed out and 'Redux' added... )

As you can see, we're not quite ready to reveal 4A Games' first next-gen console project, but we will be making an announcement this side of E3.

And we think the reality is a lot more exciting than the out-dated material that got leaked shows, and we're itching to share it with you. Just not yet.

Refreshing to see a publisher confirm a rumor for once. Also sounds like it is more than just compilation of both games.

Awesome! Been dying to play both games for a long while now. Got them on 360, Steam, and PS+ over various promotions but will hold off playing them for the PS4 port.

Reading it again, what does 'this side of E3' actually mean? Does it mean at E3 or could it also be earlier/later?

I love that Deep Silver decided to address this honestly and frankly...it's quite refreshing to see a studio do that outright.

Hmmm. Additional content maybe? retooled directors cuts?

Either way, buying for sure. MLL was one of 2013s best games.

Metro series has some of the best, if not best atmosphere in a FPS these days.

I played Last Light on PS3 cause i got it for free as PS+ and thought it was brilliant.

I am there day 1.

I dunno, I thought it was much more narrow and linear in scope than those other games. Guns also felt kind of awful.

Still interesting games, though.

Yea,that is what I am suspecting now, also. Sorry about that.

Would appreciate it if a mod could change the title.

I read the whole OP as "Metroid: Redux" and I got really excited.

Then I looked up 4A Games, and realized that it's Metro: Redux. Still cool though, I loved Metro 2033.

They were narrow and linear, but still more fun and engaging compared to those games.

Yes. Sony should take a lesson and do the same for the TLOU for PS4 leak.

Sony is probably banking on people buying Left Behind on PS3 and then double dipping.
