A new Metro game is coming in 2017

Get excited.

The final book in the Metro trilogy is available to pre-order now and the Metro website has been updated accordingly. Nothing strange about that.

You can scroll down the timeline on the page to see how the books and games fit together, and – oh! What’s this?

“The next Metro video game,” just sitting nonchalantly at the bottom with a 2017 release date.

The game is set to pick up where the books finish, so here’s a brief summary of Metro 2035:

“The final part of the trilogy takes us back to Artyom and his struggle to get the people back to the above world they once ruled. This is a standalone story that can be read independently from the previous books and games — yet for those who have been following Artyom from the very beginning, Metro 2035 crowns the saga in its own way. Characters of all the books and games meet here, their destinies intertwine, and everything you knew about the world of Metro is turned upside down…”

So what can we expect for next year?

“It all adds up to something. Where the books end their story, the game will pick it up. An era of great discoveries lies ahead…”

That’s a lot of…

4A Games has been working on two projects, and in an open letter on their website teased that Arktika.1 (remember those sci-fi screenshots they shared last month?) “is one of TWO projects in development right now.”

If we’re looking at a 2017 release, the other one has got to be Metro. Right?

In the meantime, we’ll just have to wait for official confirmation from the studio or Deep Silver.
