The creators of the Metro franchise, 4A Games are currently exploring multiplayer, as well as a new series in accordance with a new update from the developer.
The update, which marks the 10th anniversary of Metro 2033, says quite a lot about the franchise and the steps developers are taking to bring Metro Exodus to the Xbox Series S|X and PlayStation 5 next year. They are sparse in precise details, but tease that players should expect higher frame rates, higher resolution, and more, including ray tracing.
But the team isn’t just looking at Metro Exodus, but what’s next for the Studio, and one word sticks out: multiplayer. The Studio was purchased by Saber Interactive earlier this year, and through this partnership, the 4A team is considering multiplayer in the Metro universe. At the same time, our partnership with Saber will allow us to explore what has always been the goal of 4A games, but what we’ve never been able to take on until now: a multiplayer experience in the Metro universe. At the same time, our partnership with Saber will allow us to explore what has always been the goal of 4A games, but what we’ve never been able to take on until now: a multiplayer experience in the Metro universe. As a small Studio, We could never do justice to these ambitions, and our ideas never went beyond the prototype stage. But with Saber’s experience in online games, we are now actively exploring multiplayer concepts that will offer a new way to experience the world of Metro.
The team also warns all players who think this is just a box-ticking exercise.As well as the fact that the team is really considering exploring a true multiplayer mode with the franchise, it also ensures that this happens at the expense of its single-player ambitions, which have made the Studio’s games popular.
The game team also teased us with a new IP with the goal of becoming a ” multi-project Studio.” While nothing has actually been revealed about the new IP address, its setup, and the like, it will be interesting to see what they come up with when more information comes out in the future.
