Italian website Everyeye.it managed to get its hands on some leaked promotional material revealing that 4A Games is planning to bring the Metro franchise to next-gen consoles.
The document indicated that Metro: Redux would include Metro 2033, Last Light, DLC, a soundtrack, art work, all wrapped up in Limited Edition packaging.
Shortly after the material started circulating Metro publisher Deep Silver confirmed Metro: Redux but made some adjustments to the rumors.
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.
