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.
If you'd like to catch up on the game, take a look at our preview and a longer discussion about the series.

WOOT....finally a new release date.
Sweet, games could always use that extra polish, and I pre-ordered this a w hile ago.
Deep Silver probably doesn't want this coming out on the same month as Dead Island either.
I was worried Metro would be delayed much further than May. Koch and Deep Silver to the rescue!
Already on my list to buy.
thank god, love the orginal we don't need another mistake like Aliens colonial marines.
Good thing it is still coming out!
I can't wait for this game. I think it's my most anticipated game ever. Metro 2033 is right up there with my favorite games ever made.
So excited. Really hoping that is only polish. Don't change anything!
I'm just glad to hear it's coming out at all. I was pretty worried it would never see the light of day with all THQ's troubles.
I loved and still do love Metro 2033. I have beat it many times and still occasionally play it. I am really looking forward to Metro Last Light. I am glad to hear the Deep Silver is giving the developers a bit more time to polish and optimize the game. Metro 2033 was such an underrated game, that fell under the radar when it released.
*** epic. i was so worried this game was gonna be rushed. thank you deep silver thank you
It comes out right after my birthday. Wow, didn't see that coming.
Glad this is still in the works. I need to finish up Metro 2033.
With delays like Raymand, it's nice to see small ones like this by comparison. Polish away!
Good, it will get more polish. I am very much looking forward to it.
Thank goodness its still releasing. I wonder what changes Dead Island's publisher can put on it...
