Expert Verified By

Next Mainline Metro Title Also In The Works!

Story Highlights
  • The Metro franchise has not seen a mainline game since the release of Metro Exodus in 2019.
  • However, the recent PlayStation State of Play has revealed that a new single-player VR game is on its way.
  • 4A Games also confirms that work on the next big game for the series is underway.

The Metro franchise has gained significant popularity due to its atmosphere and survival narrative. However, fans have been eagerly anticipating a new mainline entry for quite some time, especially since a reveal has been rumored since August 2023.

Days ago, a leaker claimed that Metro Awakening would be unveiled at the PlayStation State of Play. As predicted, this title has been featured at the event, confirming a VR spin-off for the survival IP.

Why it matters: The anticipation for a new Metro game has been intense, particularly because the last mainline installment in the Metro franchise, Metro Exodus, was released almost five years ago.

This VR game focuses on the core strengths of the IP. Stealth, crafting, and other crucial elements of the survival experience Metro fans have come to expect are found in this switch to VR.

However, using haptic feedback and adaptive triggers, the game dials the immersion up to eleven. According to the reveal, Metro Awakening is an origin story set in 2028.

This game is also being developed by Vertigo Games as a VR-exclusive release. Still, for those not fond of this format, 4A Games has positive news to share, highlighting the future of the franchise.

VR games often present a challenge, and their reception can be quite hit or miss. However, Metro Awakening is looking quite promising. Set for a 2024 launch, this release hopes to translate the survival experience into virtual reality.
