The makers of Metro Exodus are working on a new sequel, plus there’s to be a multiplayer version of the post-apocalyptic survival game.

A new Metro game (no relation) for Xbox Series X/S and PlayStation has been announced by developer 4A Games, who are planning ‘a complete overhaul’ of the existing game engine for the new generation.

Before that happens though existing game Metro Exodus will be getting a dedicated next gen version with a faster frame rate, increased resolution, reduced loading times, and new ray-tracing effects.

We were always very impressed by Metro Exodus, so that all sounds like good news to us – especially as publisher Deep Silver has confirmed that there’ll be a free upgrade for existing owners.

There’s no release date yet, for either next gen Metro Exodus or its sequel, but 4A Games has released a http://www.Timeline.MetroTheGame.com, charting the history of the studio and its games.

That’s not all though, as they’ve also partnered up with World War Z developer Saber Interactive to make a multiplayer spin-off.

There’s a little more information on 4A Games’ blog, where they claim this is something they’ve always wanted to do but never had the time for.

‘Whatever we do, it’s not to the detriment of our single-player ambitions’, insists the studio. ‘We’ll need a dedicated team focused solely on the online component, and this is what our new partnership with Saber can bring.’
