Deep Silver has officially debunked the report in an official statement.
The statement in question:
“As the exclusive rights holder to video games 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.
“When we have more news to share, we will. Thank you for your patience.”
It looks like we’re getting a new Metro game next year if the Metro novel series website is to be believed. The blurb for the upcoming novel reads:
2017 – The next Metro video game
It all adds up to something. Where the books end their story, the game will pick it up. An era of great discoveries lies ahead.
