No Metro Game in 2017

The Metro Facebook page has a reaction from Deep Silver to the indications that a new Metro game is in the works (thanks Gematsu). They confirm they have more plans for the series, but dash hopes that a new Metro game will arrive by the 2017 date mentioned:
You may have noticed some sites have reported that a new Metro game would be released in 2017. Deep Silver has released the following statement...

As the exclusive rights holder to videogames set in the Metro 2033 universe, Deep Silver has ambitious plans for the hugely successful Metro series.

But just to manage our fans' expectations - releasing the next Metro game in 2017 is not one of them.

When we have more news to share, we will.

Thank you for your patience.
