4A Games: The Unannounced Features Of The Next-Gen Consoles Are More Exciting

4A Games, the developers behind the Metro series, know more than we do…

Eurogamer interviewed Oles Shishkovstov, the chief technical officer of 4A Games. The interview is mostly about the seemingly impossible port of Metro Redux Bundle (containing both Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light in their Redux version) to the Nintendo Switch, they took a turn towards the next-gen consoles, the PlayStation 5 and the Xbox Series X, as well.

„We are fully into ray tracing, dropping old-school code path/techniques completely. Internally, we experimented a lot, and with spectacular results so far. You will need to wait to see what we implement in our future projects. I am more excited for not yet publicly revealed things,” he said. While he was impressed by what Sony and Microsoft revealed of their new respective console, his teasing of more features sound exciting.

Also, he said future projects. So they are working on more than one game now. We wouldn’t be surprised if Metro Exodus gets a next-gen version. Seeing how Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light both came out in the era of the PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360, and both getting ported to the PlayStation 4, the Xbox One, and now the Nintendo Switch, it’s plausible. It looks like Embracer Group has acquired a few dev kits for the Ukrainian studio.

The PlayStation 5 and the Xbox Series X will both arrive this Holiday season. If history repeats itself, then we’ll get a November launch for both of them. They are likely going to cost more than their predecessors (or, with the case of the Xbox Series X, the price will be the same as the Xbox One’s launch price was) – currently, it seems that the new hardware will cost 500 dollars.
