The next instalment in the Metro franchise will be with us by next year, which should please fans of post apocalyptic adventuring.

This news comes from the official site for Metro 2035, the final novel in Dmitry Glukhovsky’s book series on which the games are based.

The website offers a timeline of all the Metro books and videogames, teasing at the end that ‘the next Metro videogame’ will be coming in 2017.

The description read:

It all adds up to something. Where the books end their story, the game will pick it up. An era of great discoveries lies ahead.

Naturally, this strongly implies that the next game will take place after the events of Metro 2035, which is set to release this Holiday season.

Developer 4A Games recently confirmed that it was working on two projects – one of these is a Metroesque shooter for the Oculus Rift, while the other has yet to be confirmed (but is very probably Metro).

At the time, 4A Creative Director Andriy “Prof” Prokhorovoctober teased of the unannounced project that ‘we’d like it’ and should just ‘be patient’.

Both Metro 2033 and its sequel Last Light were well received by critics upon release, so expect big things from the new instalment.
