The Metro series won't be leaving PC anytime soon

'PC version will always be at the heart of our plans'

Metro Exodus has been ripe with controversy over the last few days. From ditching Steam to THQ Nordic saying the decision was entirely Koch Media's call, fans have had a lot to unpack over the weekend. It didn't help when early Sunday, a supposed developer from 4A Games took to a Russian forum and stated something along the lines of the series would leave PC if fans continued to boycott it.

That obviously wasn't an official endorsement, so 4A Games took to the official Metro Twitter account to set the record straight. In a statement made yesterday, 4A wrote:

The recent decision to move Metro Exodus from Steam to the Epic Game Store was made by Koch Media / Deep Silver alone.

The recent comments made by a member of the 4A Games development team do not reflect Deep Silver's or 4A Games' view on the future of the franchise. They do reflect the hurt and disappointment of a passionate individual who has seen what was previously nothing but positive goodwill towards his work turn to controversy due to a business decision he had no control over. We respectfully ask that any and all valid feedback over this decision is directed at Koch Media / Deep Silver, and not the developers at 4A Games.

The future release strategy of the Metro series lies with Koch Media / Deep Silver. Our decision to partner with Epic Games was based on the goal of investing in the future of the series and our development partner at 4A Games. We have every intention of continuing this franchise, and a PC version will always be at the heart of our plans.

Needless to say, Metro isn't going to jump ship to consoles anytime soon. It's sad that this needed to be stated, but with a bunch of different sites running the forum post as an official story, the misinformation needed to be cleared. If you're a PC gamer and interested in Metro, you have nothing to fear.
