The inclusion of 4A Games in this year’s event holds the promise of significant announcements and revelations about the developer’s current and future endeavors.
Metro Exodus, the third installment in the Metro series, garnered widespread acclaim for its captivating narrative, atmospheric world-building, and engrossing gameplay mechanics. Known for its post-apocalyptic setting in the ruins of Moscow’s subway system, the series has developed a dedicated fan base over the years. The anticipation surrounding 4A Games’ presence at Gamescom 2023 stems from the desire to learn more about potential sequels, expansions, or entirely new projects that the studio might be working on.
Recently, a credible source in the gaming community disclosed that the game developer was in the process of creating a follow-up to Metro Exodus. According to the report, this upcoming game is in its final stages of development, with 4A Games targeting a potential release window in 2024. Furthermore, the source indicated the possibility of an unveiling for the game sometime in 2023.
As the developer said:
“It is no secret that we have already started work on the next Metro game. Using everything we’ve learned over the past 15 years, we have set ourselves an even higher goal – the next title is being developed for 9th Generation consoles and PC”
While it’s uncertain if 4A Games will indeed introduce the new Metro installment at gamescom (scheduled for August 23-27), pooling the information we have thus far, we can approach the potential game announcement with a hopeful outlook.
