Developer 4A Games still has much in store for fans of the Metro series. The company recently released a long blog post announcing their plans, along with a bonus for fans who have purchased, or plan to purchase, a PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series console in the future.

The Metro series recently celebrated the 10th anniversary of the first game in the series, Metro 2033. The most recent game in the series, Metro Exodus, launched its final DLC, Sam’s Story, which followed the character on his journey back to the United States.

One of the big updates includes an interactive Metro timeline now available on the 4A Games website. The map covers every major event during the series but also in the studio. The developer has continued to work with the series’ creator, Dmitry Glukhovsky, to ensure they were bringing his vision to life.

The developer is not also celebrating the past but talking about its plans for the future. The company is currently working on bringing Metro Exodus to the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S sometime next year. The details are still in progress, but 4A Games stated that there are major enhancements planned.

The next-gen enhancements of Metro Exodus include visual improvements and performance, increased resolution, faster frame rate, reduced loading times, and Ray Tracing features that are made possible thanks to the new hardware.

The enhanced versions will be available as a free upgrade for existing owners of the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One owners of the game. The update will be available for digital and physical owners. Players who don’t pick up the game until next year will still be able to pick up the upgrade.

Players can expect a new Metro game in the series in the future. The developer is building it for PC and Gen 9 consoles. There will be a complete overhaul of the engine and renderer to take full advantage of the new hardware and software available.

The Metro series is founded on being an immersive single-player experience. The developer is working on balancing fans’ expectations but also pushing themselves as a studio. 4A Games previously announced their partnership with Saber Interactive, which will allow them to create a multiplayer experience within the Metro universe. Details are still in progress.
