The lights are on
Metro: Last Light was originally slated to come out this month, but the game was delayed. It's understandable, considering the upheaval that surrounded the game's development, including the collapse of publisher THQ. Now its new publisher, Deep Silver, has announced that the game is coming out this May.
More specifically, Artyom will continue his subterranean adventures on May 14 in North America, and the rest of the world starting May 17. Publisher Deep Silver says the additional time will go toward adding an additional layer of polish. When developer 4A Games came to our offices a few months ago, they were quite vocal about THQ not providing the studio with the time and resources they needed to optimize the game in its final stretch. Here's hoping their relationship with Deep Silver works better for everyone.
