Metro Redux is real, coming to PS4, Xbox One and PC *update*


Update: Deep Silver has issued a statement to VG247 to confirm that Metro Redux is indeed real.

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.

But what you saw leaked was taken from an old, internal planning presentation, containing some nuggets of truth but a lot of hypothetical ideas and place holder material.

(Eagle eyed fans will recognize the artwork on the ‘packshot’ as the art from the original Russian edition of the Metro 2033 novel. And that ‘logo’ is just the old Metro 2033 logo with the ’2033? scrubbed out and ‘Redux’ added… )

As you can see, we’re not quite ready to reveal 4A Games’ first next-gen console project, but we will be making an announcement this side of E3.

And we think the reality is a lot more exciting than the out-dated material that got leaked shows, and we’re itching to share it with you. Just not yet.

Original: Remastered versions of Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light will arrive on Xbox One, PS4 and PC, if a new image which has appeared on the internet is to be believed.



Box art and details for 'Metro Redux' were posted on an Italian video games forum over the weekend showing the first two games and DLC, all in one remastered package.

CVG has contacted publisher Deep Silver to enquire about the rumoured remasters and any plans it may have to bring the Metro series to next-gen consoles.

Metro 2033 reviewed pretty well, while Metro Last Light was also pretty well received.

It does seem to be a trend at the moment to release games from PS3/Xbox 360 on the latest consoles, so we wouldn't be surprise if this turned out to be true.

Oh joy. When are devs going to stop messing around with polished versions of their old games and start making some new ones?

These remakes are doing my head in, yes i own the tomb raider one but i don't want every game being remade.

but to be honest i probably will get this.

How would they be remastered for PC? The games are already quite power hungry

Hoping this pans out as I really liked the Metro games but I only played the first on 360, where it ran pretty shitty. Plus I wouldn't mind trying out the DLC for Last Light either. Could be a decent package.

Next gen = Last-gen remastered (mostly) :) I would understand if there were sequels to the original games, but graphical updates? Come on. The last-gen versions don't look that bad (actually they look pretty good). And yes, most of the people owning next-gen systems are mostly gamers, and they have (probably) played all of those games. This is a cash-in, and this is actually the reason why there is no backward compatibility in the new consoles.

I can just imagine a big secret conference a couple of years back between MS and Sony and all the major game publishers where they agreed on it.

What short memories some of you have. The first year of the Xbox 360 and PS3 were no different to what we are seeing right now with these new machines. A lean schedule padded out with jazzed up last gen ports until install bases are big enough to justify switching focus for the big publishing houses. This is how things have worked since consoles made the switch to disc based storage. And no, this isn't why there's no backwards compatability (Assuming you were serious with that). That's a result of console architecture being completely incompatible with older machines to the point where backwards compatability would only be possible with additional internal hardware in the consoles, which was one of the things that made the PS3 so expensive in the beginning as it had to use a hardware BC solution(As does the Wii U currently I believe), which proved impractical in the long run.

From developer point of view this is perfect plan. They have completed games, but they need to create and test new game engine for new generation and future titles. Btw, Metro 2033 never graced Playstation platform, which makes more sence to buy this collection. I wish CD Projekt RED do the same...

Can't say I remember any old Xbox games being ported to the 360 in it's first year kevin, there were plenty of simultaneous releases on Xbox and 360, but that's not the same thing.
Gloria 4 months ago
Yep, most of the last gen ports were indeed either day and date with the original Xbox versions or released a few weeks after, but ports is still all they were, and they made up the vast majority of the releases the 360 saw that first year... and yes, there were a few staggered ports that first year in the same vein as the likes of this rumoured Metro re-release also. First up as I recall was a port of the Xbox version of Far Cry 1 released as a combined package with it's standalone expansion game on 360. Resold as a full priced 360 title.

I'd forgotten about Farcry, the 360 release of it was at a budget price though, not full price, so that's one game compared to Tomb Raider, Metro, etc
Gloria 4 months ago
It was £44.99 in HMV when it came out, that's not "budget" by any stretch of the imagination. Also, keep in mind Metro is still not a confirmed release, so you're basically only citing Tomb Raider and an ill defined "etc" here.

F you Kevin.

£44.99 in HMV? That's HMV for you, I paid under £20 for it.
Gloria 4 months ago
Ahhh, this Gloria vs Kevin thing here has made me think of the good old days when you two would go at it all day everyday

Why PC? There isn't much else you can do that would be worthwhile

"£44.99 in HMV? That's HMV for you, I paid under £20 for it." - That wasn't the RRP though. It was a full priced release, not a budget one, which was the original point.

HMV were notorious for overcharging, seeing them charge that much for a game does not mean it was the RRP.

http://www.gamesindustry.biz/articles/ubisoft-delivers-next-chapter-in-far-cry-instincts-franchise-for-xbox-360-and-xbox - Here's the original press release for the game's launch in 2006. RRP: £49.99. Looks like we were both wrong Gloria... but you considerably moreso :)
PrometheusFan 4 months ago
You should never pay RRP for anything & if you do you are a mug
