However, this doesn’t diminish the achievements of the earlier Metro games, which have also garnered significant attention and success.

  • Metro 2033 Redux has grossed $57.7 million.
  • Metro: Last Light Redux has grossed $46.2 million.
  • Metro Exodus Enhanced Edition has grossed $5.3 million.

Metro Exodus and Metro Last Light are definitely the most popular games in the series, and that is simply because they blend together the classic and the modern. Exodus is the newest game in the series while 2033 Redux has the best storytelling in the series in general. The other games are not far behind, with Last Light Redux reaching nearly $50 million in revenue on its own.

THQ reached $163 million in revenue in the first quarter of 2019.

  • That is a 158% increase in profit compared to the previous year.
  • The Operational Costs sector noted $40 million in profit, which is a 217% increase, year-on-year.
  • Metro Exodus sold 2.5 times more copies than Last Light during its launch window.

Oooh, some financials! We haven’t had those in a while now. What these numbers mean, essentially, is that Metro Exodus was a major success. The game recouped all of its marketing and development costs within a few months, and increased THQ’s profits substantially along with Satisfactory.

  • Metro 2033 had 794,018 hours watched in 2019.
  • Metro 2033 Redux had 315,514 hours watched in 2022.

  • Metro Exodus had 8.4 million hours watched in 2019.
  • Metro Exodus: Enhanced Edition had 347,625 hours watched in 2022.

Looking at these numbers, we can see that the Metro series has always been decently popular between 2019 and 2022, as that is when their popularity peaked and then slowly started falling off because they are single-player games and have little rewatch value. Despite this, it is nice to see the series prosper even today.

To sum up

Alright! That’s all of the information we managed to scrounge up from the deep, dark caverns of the Metro! As you can see, the games have always been smash hits whenever they were released and they continued to stay relevant, even in the growing competitive atmosphere of the gaming industry today. Metro Exodus is away and afar the most popular of the series, and it has really represented the idea of the Metro brilliantly, deserving of the top spot. We sincerely hope that you have enjoyed this and that all of your questions have been answered!
