Earlier today, we reported that the Metro 2035 official website had been updated to show the third and final installment in the apocalyptic series amongst its visual timeline, with a 2017 release penned in. In a recent update both the year of the games release, its title and summary have been altered with a question mark now replacing a date.
The third novel in a series written by Russian author Dmitry Glukhovsky, from which the games originate is currently available for pre-order via Metro 2035‘s website with a December 10th release date on Amazon, however, a game of possibly the same name will now not release in 2017 at all, according to both website and the games publisher Deep Silver.
Below the Metro 2035 novel in a timeline of books and games we saw proof of the next video game in the series with the date 2017 and a title that read,“The next Metro video game”. A brief summary also accompanied the game reading,“It all adds up to something. Where the books end their story, the game will pick it up. An era of great discoveries lies ahead…”
This has since changed to now show a question mark instead of 2017 in addition to a new title which now reads “An untitled Metro project”, the description has also been edited to read, “But the Metro saga doesn’t end where the books leave us… An era of great discoveries lies ahead!”
More recently, the official Twitter account for the Metro series posted a Tweet which leads to a statement from the games publisher DeepSilver, which you can see below.
The publisher and owner of the all exclusive rights to the Metro 2033 universe commented that while it has ambitious plans for the series, releasing a new title in 2017 isn’t one of them.
While its existence is now confirmed we may have to wait a little bit longer for the third but possibly not the last installment in the popular FPS series.
