Much to Deep Silver and 4A Games' chagrin, rumors started swirling recently about Metro: Last Light and Metro 2033 being brought to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One via a package called Metro Redux. Being the badasses that they are, rather than deny rumors and speculation they've stepped forward and confirmed the bundle's existence. It's not entirely a full-on announcement, but for Metro fans I think it will do.
As for when fans can expect more details, Deep Silver has some information on their plans. They come in addition to a reminder that any leaked material may not be representative of the final product:
"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.
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."
Rumors and speculation are both an awesome and unfortunately side of our industry. Gamers love hearing about games as soon as they can and yet there's really no argument that reveals and announcements prior to the launch of official marketing can hurt a game's overall sales. I believe in cases like Metro Redux's, where Deep Silver stepped up and confirmed its existence and promised more information soon, can only improve anticipation of the game.
As far as updated games moving from Xbox 360/PlayStation 3 to PlayStation 4/Xbox One, there really isn't a better option than the Metro titles. Both Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light are gorgeous on PC, but are heavily limited on console. Metro Redux can, and I have no doubt will, deliver a hugely improved visual experience for console gamers. Plus, it's just another great excuse to play the Metro games again.
Cheers to Deep Silver and 4A Games for being the best.
