The latest entry in the Metro franchise, Metro 3, has officially been announced during Microsoft's E3 2017 press conference.
The moody demo, showcased on the Xbox One X, opened with a Dostoevsky quote, and quickly transitioned into a first-person battle with a pack of wolf-like ghoul in a dark tunnel. The character then emerged into a landscape featuring a derelict town, exploring the abandoned landscape with a crossbow in hand.
A website listing suggested the third Metro game would be coming in 2017. Publisher Deep Silver confirmed at the time, however, that there were no plans to continue the franchise with a new release this calendar year. Metro franchise developer 4A Games previously teased the studio's newest project last year with a series of images.
An adaptation of the Metro 2033 series from Russian author Dmitry Glukhovsky, 4A Games first delivered Metro 2033 in 2010, which IGN gave a 6.9 in our review at the time. IGN then gave the sequel, Metro: Last Light, a 7.7, calling it "a bold post-apocalyptic FPS adventure uniquely told from the Russian point of view."
Both games were then combined into the Metro: Redux collection, for which IGN said in our review that having "both in a single, enhanced package is a great way to discover (or rediscover) the Moscow Metro's unconventional charms."
