Yesterday, rumours swirled about that 4A games and new publisher Deep Silver were set to remaster both Metro games, bundle them together as Metro Redux for the new consoles from Microsoft and Sony. Because definitive editions are this generation’s “HD Remakes,” it was quite obviously true. Deep Silver has now confirmed this.
“Metro Redux. You may have heard of it… even though you probably shouldn’t have!” the publisher said in a statement to VG247
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.
Metro Redux contains both games, and all DLC. Here’s what was leaked yesterday:
