Deep Silver confirms that Metro will continue
During Gamescom, Dr. Klemens Kundratitz confirmed that the Metro series will continue.
Said Dr. Kundratitz, “It’s been a positive experience. I’m very glad we acquired that brand. While it launched in a very dry space in the gaming calendar this year, it still got a lot of attention. Our ambition is to absolutely continue with that brand and we will also, in the next phase, look to making it more accessible for a broader gamer audience.”
This caused the interviewer to ask if broadening the imposing, claustrophobic experience would diminish what fans love (or even cause issues with the license holder).
Kundratitz answered, “It is true with a license you have to be aligned with the license holder. In this case it’s [Metro 2033 author] Dmitry Glukhovsky who holds the license and he’s a great guy. He enjoys the game, the success of the game and we have a good relationship. He is a great contributor. Also, going forward, as he has been very positive contributing to the last game – I think he can play an active role for whatever comes in the future.”
After all this was said, he emphasized that the company isn’t currently announcing a Metro sequel, bu rather that the brand is a part of the company’s future.
When will we see a new Metro?
