Sidste uge annoncerede udviklerne 4A Games deres kommende VR-titel Arktika.1, som de laver til Oculus Touch. Ifølge udviklerne selv gav denne udmelding anledning til en del skuffelse blandt fans a Metro-serien. Derfor har de skrevet et åbent brev, hvor de forsikrer alle om, at de ikke har forladt den traditionelle spilserie.
"It's clear that some of you really like the look of ARKTIKA.1 but we also see some of you were... maybe a bit disappointed. Perhaps you prefer traditional PC / console games, and maybe you were hoping we'd announce... something else!
So let me say again - ARKTIKA.1 is one of TWO projects in development right now. It's not holding the other project up - with our new Malta studio we are a much bigger team, and it is better for us to have multiple projects, for our own independence and creativity. We're not ready to talk about the other project just yet, but we think you'll like it. So please be patient!"
