Update: Deep Silver has confirmed that Metro Redux is real, and has promised that an official announcement will be made before E3 later this year.
“Metro Redux. You may have heard of it… even though you probably shouldn’t have,” the publisher said in a statement. “We could issue a ‘We do not comment on rumor 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 rumor 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,” Deep Silver added. “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.”
Original Story: Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light could be making their way to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One as Metro Redux, a new report has suggested.
Images for Metro Redux first appeared on Italian website Everyeye.it, but were later removed. According to the images, Metro Redux is set to release this July for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, and contains enhanced versions of Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light, a Day One DLC token, a soundtrack, art cards, and limited edition packaging.
Metro 2033 was released for PC and Xbox 360 in March 2012. While its sequel, Metro: Last Light, launched May 2013 for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC.
We’ve contacted Deep Silver about Metro Redux and will update this post when more information is available.
