Read our full Metro Redux review.
Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light from 4A Games will be coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, Deep Silver confirms. The publisher isn’t quite ready to go into detail yet on its plans, confirming the news today only as a response to recent rumors, but an official announcement will happen in the next few months.
The rumors started when Italian website everyeye.it posted what appeared to be a retail listing for a game titled Metro: Redux (captured by IGN). The listing claimed Metro: Redux – which would include remastered versions of 2033 and Last Light, along with a soundtrack, art cards, and limited edition packaging – was coming to PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One in July 2014.
Rather than respond to the rumors with a typical “no comment,” Deep Silver decided to get in front of the leak and confirm that the bundle is real. Here’s all we know, via the official comment:
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.
The post goes on to warn that any leaked artwork is from an old presentation that was never meant to be released to the public, and the listing contained information that was never anything more than a placeholder. In other words, things like the release date and the additional content may never have been intended to be a part of the bundle. Deep Silver also noted that additional news on Metro: Redux will be coming on “this side of E3,” meaning we’ll know more before the annual trade show descends in June.
