Goodness, even cash-in remakes from the seventh generation can't hit 1080p on the Xbox One. I guess, to be fair, Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light are easily two of the best looking games in recent years. Running them on the highest settings on PC is next-gen.
One of the big things to happen in the AAA space is that if you manage to get a niche success that turns a moderate profit, the next step is to branch out that IP so that it hits more than just the market of gamers who love the property. In the case of the Metro franchise, the next game will be designed to hit more demographics due to being more accessible.

In a post-apocalyptic world where creatures roam the night (and sometimes the day) and all sorts of mutant monstrosities are trying to rip flesh from bone, one of the more normal aspects of such a world is a crazy preacher teaching crazy teachings to anyone who will listen, that's the job of The Preacher in 4A Games' upcoming horror-shooter, Metro: Last Light.
In THQ's second quarter earnings report, the company laid out some not-too-unexpected news regarding their 2013 slate, announcing that key titles in their line-up such as Company of Heroes 2, South Park: The Stick of Truth and Metro: Last Light have all been hit with delays.

Nearly 13 minutes of real-time gameplay has been released for public viewing. The footage is courtesy of the demo that THQ and 4A Games had on display at this year's E3. It's definitely some great, atmospheric stuff and it's a shame more movies aren't this intense.

Nevertheless, the developers and marketers behind Metro: Last Light will stand to correct the previous game’s flaws by making the sequel better in every way imaginable and have it arrive on time for a clean 2012 release.
