No, there are no multiplayer options available in Metro Exodus. Instead, Metro Exodus has been confirmed as an exclusively single-player experience by the developers. In an interview with Game Informer, 4A Games executive producer Jon Bloch explained the reasoning behind the decision to exclude multiplayer from Metro Exodus.

“I don’t think we can say [multiplayer] is something that isn’t interesting from a technical standpoint, but our focus for Metro has always been a story-driven experience, y’know, filling the shoes of someone living in [Metro’s] environment and going on this journey.”

Bloch went on to confirm that 4A Games had experimented with the idea of co-op for Metro Exodus, but that nothing came to fruition. Creative director Andriy Prokhorov also teased that “multiplayer is possible” but not for Metro Exodus. With this information, it’s not outside the realm of possibility to say that a follow-up game to Metro Exodus may include multiplayer options should the developers find a way to make them work.

However, multiplayer for the sake of multiplayer isn’t something they’re interested in. As such, multiplayer likely won’t be added to Metro Exodus, and there’s no implicit confirmation that multiplayer will be added to future Metro games even though the idea isn’t off the table. What are your thoughts on the lack of multiplayer options in Metro Exodus?
