Metro: Last Light Slated For May Release
The post-apocalyptic Metro: Last Light will be arriving this spring. Deep Silver, the new publisher of the game, has announced a May release date for the PC/PS3/360 first-person shooter.
Last Light's original publisher was THQ. However, that company went bankrupt in December and sold off the rights to Koch Media, parent to Deep Silver. Last Light was once planned for a March release but apparently the shuffling between publishers necessitated a delay.
"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 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."
Metro: Last Light is the sequel to Metro 2033. It takes place in the year 2034, in the wake of a devastating nuclear war. In Moscow, the small number of human survivors now eke out a living in the underground metro tunnels. The factions of survivors fight each other while also defending against mutants.
Last Light will debut on May 14th in North America and Latin America. Europe will receive the game on the 17th.
