The Metro franchise has been a successful one, and we haven’t seen a new game in a couple of years. So when rumors surfaced that the next instalment would be coming next year, it seemed plausible enough, and naturally fans were excited. However, Deep Silver, the franchise’s publisher, has spoken with Destructoid and they’ve squashed all rumors of a new entry coming in 2017.
Deep Silver offered the following comment to Destructoid today: “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’s a damn shame, but at least it’s confirmation that the publisher still has plans for the series and possible new entries. Now, it’s just a matter of when they will be revealed. What are your thoughts on the series so far? Feel free to let us know in the comments down below.
