4A Games suffered through a controversy recently that begin after the comments of one of their employee was posted on a forum which threatened to stop any future Metro games released on PC. They have now shared an official comment on it but it comes from the publisher Deep Silver.
In a Tweet, they assured PC users that they have every intention to continue releasing any future Metro games on PC.
Here is their full statement on this matter.
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.
Metro Exodus will be available on February 15th for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC through Epic Games Store.
