Metro: Last Light and Metro 2033 could be coming to PS4 and Xbox One

[UPDATE] Metro Redux confirmed! More details to come closer to E3.

[UPDATE] Following the publication of this story, Metro developer 4A Games confirmed Metro Redux through a statement on the game's website. You can read the message in full below.

"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."

The original story is below.

Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light could be making their way to Xbox One and PlayStation 4, a new report has suggested.

A product image of Metro Redux was displayed temporarily on Italian website Everyeye.it, but All Games Beta managed to archive the information.

According to the listing, the bundle will be released in July for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC, and contains a 'redux' version of Metro 2033 and its sequel Metro: Last Light. Also mentioned is a download code for some DLC, a soundtrack, art cards, and fancy packaging.

Metro 2033 was first released on PC and Xbox 360 back in 2010. The sequel, Metro: Last Light, made its way to Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC in 2013, and scored a whopping 9/10 from GameSpot at the time.

Metro: LL is overrated. Horrible voice acting and retarded storyline

Would you like to pay $60 for something you already played with, for the sake of better graphics? When Tomb Raider did it people were outraged. Now if you think 4A won't charge full price don't forget they wanted you to pay for a higher difficulty setting.

Maybe they'll axe that awful alien kid in Last Light, here's to hoping.

Yep, Im ready for this. I would love it if they could update the mechanics of 2033 to be more like Last Light. That'd be the icing on the cake.

Got Metro Last Light for free on ps plus…. wasn't a fan, still haven't finished it yet though… i'm willing to give it another shot later when I have nothing else to play

I assume it's gonna be 60$ for each,why : "because this games are coming to next gen consoles,and graphics are improved to fun full 1080p 60fps,it's gonna be better experience than last gen consoles"..bla bla bla.. yeah I already got them so no thanks

The fact that Metro fucking 2033 from 4 years ago is coming to PS4 and Xbox One just goes to show once again that the previous generation stuck around way too long.

We all know its not gonna be a "MAXED OUT" version on the consoles.Sure it will run at 1080p @ 60FPs... with Medium settings.

I hope its a redux like Resident Evil was on the Gamecube and not just a simple port....but I doubt it.

Nice, I have yet to play the second one but the first was really good.  I'm also glad they made it clear they're also working on something new.

This is great news. My 360 crapped out on me while I was playing this and I never got to finish it. I'll be picking this up on launch for the ol' PS4.

Both are amazing games, and I would surely buy this just to support 4A.

Remember, some clever devs got Doom 3 ,and Half Life 2 running on the original Xbox, it's totally plausible to get Metro re-done for PS4 and XBONE looking and running great.
But also, April 1st humans, everything you read on the internet is possibly false.

What a great year for gaming. So much innovation. Thanks next-gen!

PS4 has the equivalent of HD7850 inside, yet Metro requires at least a HD7990 to max it out with a decent framerate. Make the conclusions.

Both on the same disc with all the DLC for $40. Then OK.

This is good news because Metro: Last Light was a very taxing game on resources. You needed a high-end pc to play it on the highest settings with a high frame-rate. The xbox and ps3 versions had much lower settings to get it to run on those systems. The PC version looked way better. So this is good news as Last Light should look, and run much better on the Xbox 1 and PS4. Metro 2033 probably won't look all that different though however. Who knows. Hopefully they both look and run great on these systems. Good news overall.

@havesumnuts 4A is great its those assholes at Deep Silver (same guys who published the Dead Island disasters) that's screwing them over.

@mrtaargus1  It wasn't an alien kid. I also don't know what was wrong with it.

@taker254isback

That's fine with me. There's loads of PC gamers with kit far more expensive than PS4 and they have to run it on medium as well.

@phbz

All the remaster ports to PS4 are perfect examples of innovation and gaming at their best. That is why they are being ported. Would you rather play new games that are crap or play a classic. I only play the good stuff so I'll play the remastered classics until the new classics arrive. They are coming because the devs are making them now. Quality takes time.

Innovative games don't stop being innovative just because they are old. I bet you follow fashion like a sheep thinking all new music is the best ever and older music that was a classic is no longer a classic.

@Ripper_TV Low level API, and dedicated OS are making wonders. Just look at last gen consoles, they ran the same games as PC, despite being what, nine year old hardware?

@Ripper_TV What does a PS4 cost versus the cost of the HD7990 alone.
Also, this could be an April Fool's joke

@Ripper_TV  I conclude that you are ignorant about how consoles work and how much they differ from PC's architecturally despite using comparable components and how much difference there is in software optimization and OS overhead..

@Ripper_TV  Consoles optimize differently, depends on the dedication of the port.

@justerthought  Personaly, if I´ve already played the game I see no logic on buying it again just because it has enhanced particle and light effects and higher resolution. Yet if I like a game I play it many times. As an example, I´ve been playing Another World with some regularity since 1991 because it´s my favorite game. Same way, I don't buy a CD or a DVD just because it has a new mastering. But that´s just me.

But if I hadn't played Metro already I would gladly buy it. It´s a great game, and imo it´s game mechanics have some particularities that makes it step away from the competition. 

Also, I would have no problems if it was just Metro. The thing is the industry has now realize they can make the quick buck by just remastering recent games. I guess they have noticed that there are a lot of non-sheep free thinkers such as yourself willing to pay twice for the same game.


At least they should do like it was done with Ridick last gen, and offer the 2 games for the price of one. 



As a side note. To people that are thinking on re-buying all the remakes for this new gen. Consider buying a PC. You´ll play the "next gen" right from the start, and for the money you'll save on not buying the same games twice you might buy a gpu on pair with ps5/xbox2. 


Just my 2 cents.

@justerthought Right... And what's so innovative about totally linear scripted shooter? Metro is good series, but there's not a lot of innovation here.

@eternal_napalm  Or Red Dead Redemption for that matter...what about the last of us?...hmmm nope cant play that on PC either, oh dear. What about Unchar...Hal....Gears of Wa...never mind.
