4A Games is working on the next Metro game

Back in May 2019, we informed you about 4A Games working on a brand new triple-A game. Well, it appears that this game is the next part in the Metro series. During THQ Nordic’s investor call, CEO Lars Wingefors, confirmed that the next Metro is under development.

Furthermore, it appears that Dmitry Glukhovsky, author of the Metro novels, will be writing the game’s story. Glukhovsky confirmed this on Instagram, stating that he’s currently working on the story.

I’m pretty sure that all Metro fans will be jumping like little kids right now. On the other hand, and when the next Metro game releases, we can be certain that it will be another Epic Games Store exclusive.

Deep Silver has stated that the game sold well on Epic’s platform, and that it was satisfied with its PC sales. As such, it’s almost certain that the next Metro game will follow the same exact plan.

Moreover, we can safely assume that this new Metro game will be coming on next-gen platforms. After all, the game is in a very early stage right now. As such, don’t expect to be playing it anytime soon. My guess is that we’re looking at a 2021 or 2022 release (at best).
