It’s been barely a day since the above image leaked online and, in a refreshing twist, publisher Deep Silver has already confirmed the existence of Metro Redux.
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.
Now this isn’t the third game in the series. Rather, we’ll be getting Metro 2033, Metro: Last Light and all related DLCs in a single package, ready for next-gen owners to eat up. There might be more to this than just a HD update but we’ll have to wait on Deep Silver’s next announcement sometime before, or during, E3.
Revisiting those tunnels should be fun.
