Ten years ago, one hundred thousand copies of the novel “Metro 2033” sold out in three months. The book has been translated into 37 languages. In 2009, Metro 2034 appeared, and the book became a bestseller. The same happened to Metro 2035, and we, the readers, sincerely await to continue Metro 2036 as a book!


So Will metro 2036 be there as a book?

The writer Dmitry Glukhovsky, based on whose work Metro 2033, Metro: Last Light, and Metro: Exodus games were developed, said there would be no more books in the Metro universe and revealed how fans could learn the continuation of Artem’s story.

“Metro 2035 terminates the book part of the Metro saga. I am not planning to write any other Metro story as a novel” Glukhovsky said.

“I think, the main questions are answered in Metro 2035. And even if there won’t be any other Metro BOOKS, this doesn’t necessarily mean that Artyom’s story can’t continue in other media…” he added.

The writer Dmitry Glukhovsky gave a new big interview for IGN Germany, in which he answered many questions from Metro fans: Exodus and the Metro franchise about the series’ future. Glukhovsky officially announced that he no longer plans to deal with Metro books, and therefore fans should not expect new books and continue the story of Artyom in this format. At the same time, Glukhovsky noted that Metro: Exodus begins at the end of the book “Metro 2035”, and the further plot of the game, in which the heroes leave the subway and explore the outside world, is no longer based on any novels.
