Insider Gaming sources have revealed that a Metro Exodus Sequel by 4A Games is well into development and is fully playable.
4A Games have been very transparent in the past that a new Metro game is coming, with Insider Gaming sources suggesting that the game is now fully playable. Such details suggest that the game could be revealed later this year, with a tentative release window of 2024 if Metro Exodus’ reveal and release schedule is anything to go by.
In 2020, 4A Games announced via its website “It’s no secret that we have already started work on the next Metro game. Using everything we’ve learned from the last 15 years, we’ve set our sights even higher – the next title is being built for Gen 9 consoles and PC, with a complete overhaul of our engine and renderer to take advantage of the new power, storage, and hardware supported ray tracing afforded by the new consoles.”
Details on what the game entails are scarce, but it was said that the game starts the player off in a dream sequence, where you’ll then wake up at your base of operations. Gameplay will follow the classic Metro formula of stealth, crafting, looting resources, and more.
The developer also revealed in 2020 that the team is “committed to delivering a great story-driven single-player experience; this is what the Metro series is founded on. As a studio, we want to constantly push ourselves to create bigger and better games, but we also listen to what the fans are saying, and we know what’s important to you. We take our responsibility to the franchise seriously, and we think you’ll be excited about our plans for the next chapter.”
Metro Exodus received generally positive reviews, and according to Embracer Group’s earnings, the game sold 6 million units as of December 31, 2022.
