Today we saw a press statement released by Metro developers 4A Games and as many fans may already be aware Metro turned ten this year, so this update is a big one with great news for fans of the series. This year also marked the acquisition of Metro’s Developers 4A Games by Embracer Group, which in turn has allowed the developers to grow. With that growth, it is not just the developers at 4A that are benefiting, but the fans as well, as Metro Exodus received its final DLC “Sam’s Story”. But that tale is not necessarily the end for Metro Exodus as now 4A is working on bringing the popular Metro title to Xbox Series X/S and PlayStation 5! The upgrade to next-gen Metro Exodus will be free to all existing owners of Metro Exodus so long as they stick to the same brand of console. Some of the details shared about the upgrade include major framerate and resolution enhancements, reduced loading times (as expected with both consoles powerful SSDs) and Ray Tracing. Along with news of the update, we also got to learn that Metro Exodus will be available on Amazons new Luna streaming service, which is currently being trialled in North America.

4A didn’t just look at the present though, as their press statement also looked to the future. They stated, “It’s no secret that we have already started work on the next Metro game.” This will be for PlayStation 5, Xbox series X/S and PC, and will be created on a freshly overhauled engine to take advantage of next-gen features. 4A remain committed to bringing their strong single-player experience to the fans, but thanks to their new acquisition by Embracer, and their new partnership with Saber (World War Z, Vampyr, Snow Runner) they can also bring multiplayer to the Metro universe. 4A Stated “As a small studio we have never been able to do justice to these ambitions, and our ideas have never made it beyond the prototype phase. But with Saber’s experience in online gaming, we are now actively exploring multiplayer concepts that will offer a new way to experience the world of Metro.” The team at 4A also claimed that this was not to be a “box-ticking exercise” and that they wanted to bring a multiplayer experience forward that makes sense in the Metro universe. As a final statement closing the press statement, 4A said that they are working on an all-new AAA IP that can sit along with the Metro Series. We at 3Bit cannot wait to see what kind of game they bring us as they venture into the realm of multi-project studio.
