'Tis the occasion of the game's 5th anniversary.

MStory Highlights

  • Metro Exodus is a first-person shooter, and the third mainline iteration in the long-running Metro franchise.
  • The game has clocked more than 10 million units in lifetime sales, having been released on multiple platforms. 
  • The developers have confirmed that the next mainline Metro game will arrive later in 2024 when it’s ready.

The Metro franchise of first-person shooting video games is one of the most engaging shooters you can play even today, despite the series being a little outdated by today’s standards. Having personally played all mainline titles in the franchise, I’m glad to see the developer reporting glad tidings on its end, confirming that Metro Exodus has rolled over 10 million units to date.  

As per the roadmap laid out by X handle of Metro, the franchise kicked off first in 2010, when 4A Games pushed out Metro 2033, the first game in the Metro series. Up until now, there’s been a total of four more titles added to the Metro catalog: Last Light, Redux, Exodus, and Metro Awakening, which is a VR game slated to debut for the PS VR2 sometime later this year.

For reference, Exodus sold 6 million+ copies back in 2022, with the developer saying, “We are thrilled by the continued success of Metro Exodus and we thank you, our wonderful players and community, for your support on this journey” at the time. The game was initially released in 2019, just so you know, until it got ported to more consoles later on.
