Speculation: Upcoming State of Play to Reveal a New Metro Title, Potentially Featuring Virtual Reality Compatibility
The buzz surrounding the upcoming State of Play event has heightened with talks of potential game appearances including Rise of the Ronin and Final Fantasy VII: Rebirth, among others. Now, it seems we may have another intriguing addition: a new installment in the Metro series, which would take the franchise into a new dimension.
According to a tweet by the well-informed Kurakasis, who cites Insider Gaming for their information, the game is christened Metro: Awakening and is exclusively tailor-made for virtual reality experiences. This revelation leads to speculation that it may not be the widely anticipated Metro 4 or a traditional entry in the series. Furthermore, the game is rumored to be unveiled at the upcoming PlayStation showcase, hinting at a possible exclusive (either temporary or permanent) addition to the upcoming PS VR2 lineup.
The development of the title is reportedly in the hands of 4A Games, a studio that remains a part of the Embracer Group's portfolio. As of now, additional details about Metro: Awakening remain under wraps.
