Metro‘s Facebook page goes against the notion.
Yesterday, we wrote about how Metro‘s page mentioned the next game’s arrival in 2017. Despite that text, the game’s Facebook page wrote this: „As the exclusive rights holder to videogames 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.”
The situation is awkward: the webpage and the Facebook page had two different statements. The past tense is on purpose: Metro’s official site says now the following: „? – An untitled Metro project.”
Perhaps the developers (4A Games) are not sure about the game’s current development situation, and they are working on two games simultaneously. Still, there’s a possibility that it gets revealed later this year – maybe the PlayStation Experience has something in store for us.
