Deep Silver responds to Metro Redux leak

metro_redux_leak_factsheet

Yesterday, some leaked internal factsheets from developer 4A Games’ studio found their way online. Those two images contained information (in Italian) about a Metro Redux, which is described as a current-gen (i.e. PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One) collection of Metro titles bundled together. According to the leaked documents, Metro Redux would bundle Metro 2033 Redux and Metro Last Light, as well as DLC.

Ordinarily companies respond to these sorts of leaks with “we do not comment on rumours and blah blah blah”, but Metro’s publisher, Deep Silver, has decided to throw caution to the wind and acknowledge that there is something coming up for Metro fans.

In a statement issued to Eurogamer, Deep Silver said:

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.

It’s an interesting statement that alludes to the possibility that there may be more than just Metro ports to new hardware. Could there be a new Metro game being announced soon?

    It would be nice if they fixed it on PC first though. There are major performance bugs. I read about it. After a certain Nvidia driver update, the performance has never been the same. I have a 780 and it still plays like crap. The ability to customize individual graphics options too would be nice.

    Yet another reason why I love Deep Silver.

    Best Game Ever, I loved the Metro series it’s story line is just incredible. The Game’s graphics was astonishing and the mix of horror and action fps (Like BF3 mixed with it) it’s just the best.

      Agreed. Loved 2033. Last Light was ok but the difficulty, or lack thereof, just resulted in the game being too easy so none of the enemies ever really felt like a threat. Unlike 2033 where I constantly had the flashlight charged to max

        True
