4A Games has responded to this morning’s rumour, confirming that the studio is cooking up something Metro flavoured for next-gen. However, the studio has yet to confirm any further details, opting instead to wait for an E3 reveal this June.
Speaking on its official site 4A said, “Metro Redux. You may have heard of it... even though you probably shouldn't have!
“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.”
This morning it was reported that a bundle of Metro: Last Light and its DLC, plus a remake of the first game called 'Metro 2033 Redux’ will be coming to retail with limited edition packaging, a soundtrack and some art cards.
