Deep Silver has played down reports of Metro: Last Light is coming to PS4, and that such a version exists merely as an "idea".
The publisher has issued a statement to clarify that the words of Metro: Last Light creative director Andrew Prokhorov, recently interviewed by a Ukrainian tech website, were perhaps misinterpreted during translation.
"It is no secret that 4A Games do want to release an SDK for Metro, finish the extremely promising multiplayer component and release this in some form, and investigate a PlayStation 4 version provided it makes commercial sense," said a Deep Silver rep to Joystiq.
"Although no development has started on any next-gen console versions [of Metro: Last Light]. We have confirmed these hopes and ideas plenty of times before," they added.
"However, all these ideas are just ideas at the moment. It will be some time before we can officially commit to any of these projects or suggest when they might materialize. They genuinely might all happen, but equally none of them might happen. Anyone expecting Metro: Last Light as a PS4 launch game is probably going to be disappointed."
