Yesterday during Microsoft’s E3 2017 press conference, Malta and Ukraine-based developer 4A Games (the team behind the long-running Metro series) announced a brand-new installment in the first-person shooter/survival horror Metro series: Metro Exodus.

Due on PS4, PC, and Xbox One sometime in 2018, Metro Exodus’ appearance at Microsoft’s conference left a few fans wondering if this meant the game would have any exclusive content to the Xbox One and the newly announced Xbox One X. However, this will not be the case as the game’s executive producer, Jon Bloch, revealed during a developer interview with Geoff Keighley. Bloch specifically had the following to say about the matter:

“We’re not planning to carve off any content or anything like that for any platform. We don’t believe in doing that.”

Bloch also reveals that the game picks up after Metro: Last Light’s canon ending, aka the “enlightened ending.” Further, Artyom the main character now in both Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light will once again return for Metro Exodus.

Additionally, Bloch also provides further information about whether the game is linear or open-world, confirming that it is a mix of both the classic Metro linear gameplay and an open-world sandbox survival experience.

Metro: Exodus will cost $59.99 USD and be available on the above-mentioned platforms.
