After leaked images and rumors suggesting that 4A Games would be prepping a current-gen double-pack of atmospheric shooters Metro: 2033 and Metro: Last Light comes confirmation from the developer, that a twin pack of the two shooters is indeed bound for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
Assuming you’re not one of those folks which hates fun, these are happy tidings indeed.
Speaking in a statement sent to Eurogamer, 4A Games confirmed that Metro Redux is a real thing and that while they aren’t ready to share details on the game immediately, they will be announcing something this side of E3.
The full statement is below:
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.
In case you’re wondering, the original leaked images for the game, which have for you below, confirm that as well as both games being included in the pack, so is all the DLC and the opportunity to purchase a limited edition of the game; the latter of which should make our very own hoover of collectors edition, Joe Cammisa, a very happy camper indeed.
