Metro Last Light and 2033 Heading To PS4 and Xbox One

Deep Silver confirms that Metro Redux is a real thing, and Metro is getting a re-release.

Over the weekend, Italian media site posted pictures of Metro Redux, a PlayStation 4 and Xbox One remaster of Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light in a single package. When the photos went up, the rumor spread around the internet as rumors do. In response, Metro publisher Deep Silver decided to do something completely different from the normal PR rumor operations. It confirmed the rumors.

"Metro Redux. You may have heard of it... even though you probably shouldn't have! We could issue a 'We do not comment on rumor and speculation' statement and pretend this never happened. They're pretty boring to read. They're also pretty boring to write," explained the company in a post on the official Metro site.

"So we're going to comment on rumor 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."

According to Deep Silver, the leaked images were taken from an "old, internal planning presentation" with some logo mockups taken from the old Metro 2033 logo.

"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," the company said. "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."

Metro: Last Light was no slouch in the graphics department on PC, so the remasters will just bring the console releases closer to that high bar. It'll also give 4A Games a chance to kick Metro 2033's graphics up a notch.
