Series that popularized 4A Games, the Metro saga will probably no longer be the sole spearhead of the Ukrainian studio. In fact, it looks like a new franchise is in the works.
In any case, this is what the indications of the various job offers on the 4A Games site suggest. A host of positions are available, some of which are accompanied by the mention “New IP“, (meaning it’s a new franchise). The studio is looking in particular for artists specializing in the creation of environments, creatures but also a game designer capable of integrating new game mechanics. That’s about all there is to it, except that this title will be an FPS.
The preparation of a brand new license by 4A Games does not mean that the studio has abandoned the Metro saga. Metro Exodus, the latest, has arrived on new generation consoles: 4K, 60fps, ray-tracing, reduced load times and even haptic feedback from the PlayStation 5 controller is on the program. At the end of last year, it was even said that a new episode for the license was already in production, and that 4A Games wanted to take advantage of the services of Saber Interactive to integrate a multiplayer mode. It was also on this occasion that the studio declared that it no longer wanted to limit itself to the Metro license, or how to combine words with action.
As a reminder, the Metro are first-person shooter video games, adapted from the eponymous literary saga by Dmitri Glukhovski. In a universe hit by the apocalypse, Russia is nothing more than a field of ruins and the player must survive in a hostile environment. The latest iteration in the saga is Metro Exodus, available on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series.
