"Metro Redux. You may have heard of it... even though you probably shouldn't have!"
A rumor surfaced this past week that saw the two 'Metro' titles, 'Metro 2033' and 'Metro: Last Light,' and their DLC would be bundled together and touched up for a PS4 & Xbox One release as 'Metro Redux.' The rumor even featured an Italian place holder image. In something of a rare occurrence, Deep Silver has directly responded to the rumor. In essence, the company confirmed that idea behind 'Metro Redux' has been one openly pushed by the developer, 4A Games, but that the leaked image was a bad fake with details like a release date not close to ready. In fact, the company is preparing an announcement regarding 4A Games's first next-gen console title, and that announcement will come between now and E3.
From Deep Silver,
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.
