Publisher Deep Silver reveals its plans.
It sounded too good to be true and it actually was. The official site for Metro 2035, the final book in the trilogy that inspired 4A Games’ acclaimed video game series, revealed that a new game would be coming in 2017. Deep Silver hadn’t formally announced anything but it’s now confirmed in a new Facebook post that a sequel isn’t coming.
“As the exclusive rights holder to video games set in the Metro 2033 universe, Deep Silver has ambitious plans for the hugely successful Metro series. But just to manage our fans’ expectations – releasing the next Metro game in 2017 is not one of them. When we have more news to share, we will.”
The Metro 2035 website has now been updated to reflect “An untitled Metro project” which states: “But the Metro saga doesn’t end where the books leave us…An era of great discoveries lies ahead!” There’s no release date for this sadly.
