Metro: Last Light release date announced for May


Metro: Last Light is out now; here’s our Metro: Last Light review.

Metro: Last Light was in the fortunate position of being more or less finished when THQ was pulled apart by horses just over a month ago. Today sees new publishers Deep Silver start the engine again and point 4A’s truck in the direction of release. ETA: depends where you are. But sometime in May.

Metro 2033’s sequel will be available on PC from May 14th in the US and South America, and from May 17th in Europe.

“The new release date is the ideal way to strike the balance between bringing the best out of Metro: Last Light and not keep the fans waiting longer than necessary,” said Dr. Klemens Kundratitz, CEO of Deep Silver parent Koch Media. “We won’t leave that time unexploited and will work closely together with 4A Games to make the game even better. It will receive all the attention it deserves.”

Deep Silver international commercial director Menno van der Bil added: “Since it has been made public that we took over the Metro franchise, the fans keep asking for a release date. Now we can finally announce when they will be able to get their hands on the game!

“We would like to thank all of the Metro fans for their patience. And we can assure them that we have a lot more coming their way with the franchise.”

Today’s statement also mentions that Last Light’s plot, and all of its dialogue, has been written by original Metro novelist Dmitry Glukhovsky – something I either hadn’t previously heard or accidentally washed out of my brain in the shower.

It’s been a tumultuous build-up to this release. Are you still with us?
