Sorry, super pals: there won’t be a new Metro game next year after all

Metro will continue, but not in 2017. Sorry.


A little bit of a disappointment in the VG247 offices today as we learn that yesterday’s news regarding a new Metro release in 2017 was incorrect.

“As the exclusive rights holder to videogames 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,” a statement published on the Metro Facebook page advised today.

“When we have more news to share, we will. Thank you for your patience.”

But what about that official Metro website stating a 2017 release for “the next Metro video game”? It has since been updated to refer to “an untitled Metro project” with the following description:

“But the Metro saga doesn’t end where the books leave us… An era of great discoveries lies ahead.”

Much more vague, innit. Well, looks like someone got their wires crossed. What a shame.

They're far more stylish than your average video game website tat.
