New Metro title by 4A Games currently in development

During the company’s latest investor presentation, THQ Nordic group CEO Lars Wingeforms confirmed 4A Games, developer of Metro games, is currently working on the next entry in the Metro series.

Unfortunately, no further details were announced. As the next generation Xbox and PlayStation on the horizon, it’s safe to assume that the new Metro title that 4A Games is currently working on will be a next-gen title.

While everyone is patiently waiting for news about 4A Games’ latest Metro title, don’t forget that Metro Exodus just came out a few months ago for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC. For those who are subscribed to Xbox Game Pass, it’s currently free to play and download.

Missed out on Metro Exodus? Here’s an overview, via its Steam page listing:

The year is 2036.

A quarter-century after nuclear war devastated the earth, a few thousand survivors still cling to existence beneath the ruins of Moscow, in the tunnels of the Metro.

They have struggled against the poisoned elements, fought mutated beasts and paranormal horrors, and suffered the flames of civil war. 

But now, as Artyom, you must flee the Metro and lead a band of Spartan Rangers on an incredible, continent-spanning journey across post-apocalyptic Russia in search of a new life in the East.

Metro Exodus is an epic, story-driven first person shooter from 4A Games that blends deadly combat and stealth with exploration and survival horror in one of the most immersive game worlds ever created.

Explore the Russian wilderness across vast, non-linear levels and follow a thrilling story-line that spans an entire year through spring, summer and autumn to the depths of nuclear winter.

Inspired by the novels of Dmitry Glukhovsky, Metro Exodus continues Artyom’s story in the greatest Metro adventure yet.Features
