Metro Exodus sequel officially confirmed

Metro Exodus sequel officially confirmed

Metro: Awakening is on the way, but it’s not exactly what long-time fans were after. The reason? You’re going to need a virtual reality headset if you want to enjoy it which, I’m imagining, plenty of us don’t have.

If the Metro: Awakening VR trailer left you craving a regular ol’ Metro instalment that you can play on your PC or console of choice, worry not. The latest VR game is more of a temporary detour than a sign of things to come. It’s Vertigo Games behind Awakening VR, but 4A Games - who developed Metro 2033, Metro: Last Light, Metro: Redux, and Metro Exodus - are hard at work too … Yes, hard at work on the next mainline entry. Rejoice.

Metro: Awakening VR is shaping up very nicely. Check out the game’s trailer below, including a glimpse at gameplay.

To celebrate Metro Exodus’s fifth anniversary, a juicy tease was posted for fans on the official Metro Twitter account. No, I can’t believe Exodus released five years ago either. The timeline charts the release years of the various Metro entries. We see Exodus, which landed in 2019, followed by the Nintendo Switch port of Redux in 2020. This is followed by Metro Exodus Enhanced in 2021, and the SDK mod support software in 2023.

That brings us up to 2024 and the launch of Awakening VR which noticeably branches away from the main timeline. If you follow the main timeline though, it leads to one more mysterious entry. Instead of a title, we just get a stylised ‘M’ and in place of a date, we have 202[?] with the final number blurred out. This means we’re definitely getting an Exodus sequel in the next six years.

The accompanying tweet read, “Metro Exodus turns 5 years old today, and has now sold over 10 million copies. Metro will return in VR with Metro Awakening from Vertigo Games in 2024 - and the next mainline Metro from 4A Games … When it’s ready. Thank you for coming on the journey so far with us.” When someone replied to the tweet, trying to pin down a release year, the account responded with a vague, “Definitely in the future”. It’s all very vague but at least Metro fans can rest easy knowing the franchise’s future is well mapped out.
