“The comments recently made by a member of the 4A Games team do not reflect the vision of 4A Games or Deep Silver of the franchise’s future. They reflect the pain and disillusionment of a passionate individual who had previously only seen goodwill in relation to his work. turned into controversy due to a business decision over which it had no control. We respectfully ask that any and all valid feedback on this decision be directed to Koch Media / Deep Silver, and not to the producers of 4A Games. “

“The future strategy for launching the Metro series is with Koch Media / Deep Silver. Our decision to partner with Epic Games was made with the aim of investing in the future of the series and in our development partner, 4A Games. We have every intention of continuing this franchise, and the PC version will always be at the heart of our plans. “
