Metro devs tease their next game - likely a sci-fi VR title


If you were hoping to head back in to the post-apocalyptic Russian underground any time soon, it’s looking like you’re going to be  a bit disappointed. On the bright side, Metro developers 4A Games are teasing their next big thing. 

If you like gun combat and immersion, our list of the best FPS games has you covered. 

4A Games have been teasing stuff for about a week now and it’s all starting to come together. It began with a tease on their Facebook page, where they released a 3D image of their office. Panning the camera revealed a countdown clock, clearly ticking down to some sort of announcement.

If you looked closely though, you’ll also notice that a lot of the staff have Oculus Rifts and Oculus Touch controls, suggesting that they’re working on a VR title. The screens are difficult to make out, but most people are guessing it’s sci-fi themed. I can make out a train track though, so maybe it is Metro related. Why do you do this to me, 4A Games?

There’s also a tweet tease from the official 4A account, showing a gloved hand and some kind of futuristic-looking UI.

Maybe it is sci-fi after all. There’s also another image on their Facebook of a hand holding some sort of gun, by the looks of things.

Whatever it is they’re working on, I’m interested. The Metro series has a better sense of atmosphere than almost everything, so I have no doubt that 4A are the developers to do something really special with VR.

Anyway, surely they’re working on Metro 3 at the same time, right? Right, guys? (If you work at 4A please answer in the comments).
