Dmitry Glukhovsky, the creative mind behind the celebrated Metro series, has announced plans to release the final novel in the post-apocalyptic series – simply titled Metro 2035 – on December 10.
What’s more, Glukhovsky’s website (via Gematsu) confirms that a new Metro game will launch at some point in 2017. It follows up on the release of Metro 2033 (2010) and its critically-acclaimed sequel, Metro: Last Light (2013), and will once again chronicle the journey of series protagonist Artyom and his struggle to survive deep beneath a war-torn Moscow. Details of a release window weren’t disclosed, only that “an era of great discoveries lies ahead.” Does that signal the return of the Dark Ones? Time will tell.
4A Games, the developer behind Last Light, is said to be working on two projects at the moment, one of which is likely the latest Metro installment. As for Glukhovsky’s literary finale, it first hit store shelves last year, »

4A Games, Ukrainian developer behind both Metro: 2033 and Metro: Last Light, is quietly toiling away on two secret, as-yet-unannounced projects.
Following the closure of publisher Thq some years ago, doubt was cast over the studio’s immediate future. But rest assured, 4A Games is alive and well, and the dev recently took to Facebook (via VG247) to post a status report revealing that, after persevering through testing times that included a studio move to Malta, it’s ready to come out of its self-imposed hiatus.
Hello everyone, yes we are alive! So thank you for putting up with us during a slight hiatus. Yes 2 years is a bit long but we have lots of exciting times ahead and wanted to bring you up to date since the last news that we were in Malta.
The burning question that you are all going to be asking (and have been asking) is: »

In a world where established properties and potential franchises reign supreme, Metro 2033’s 80-book series and a pair of popular video games are seen as prized assets for movie producers. Which is why it’s probably unsurprising to learn that Michael De Luca, Stephen L’Heureux, and Dmitry Glukhovsky have all teamed together to make a feature film adaptation of the latter’s best-selling novel. Michael De Luca and Stephen L’Heureux, who works with Solipsist Films, were convinced to come on-board after Eugene Efuni brought the project to them. For his efforts, Eugene Efuni has been rewarded with a producer’s credit according to Variety. For those of you not familiar with Metro 2033, it tells the story of Artyom, a survivor of World War 3 who hides out in the subway system of Moscow, which also doubles as the largest fallout »
Variety has the scoop, noting that Stephen L’Heureux (Sin City: A Dame to Kill For) is also attached to the embryonic project. Based on Glukhovsky’s harrowing post-apocalyptic novel series, which has since gone on to inspire two video games entitled Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light, the author released an official statement in light of the announcement, revealing how he has been “extremely careful” before allowing his passion project to be handed over to Hollywood producers.
But a great vision has since swayed Glukhovsky’s stance, with the scribe stating that “my novel and I have been waiting for this to happen for the last 10 years. I have previously been extremely careful about handing my ‘baby’ over to Hollywood producers for adaption for a feature film, »
