Deep Silver’s only owned Metro: Last Light for a few weeks but already it’s managed to do something THQ never did – give us a release date for 4A Games’ anticipated sequel. Clearly I’m being a bit flippant here, as THQ is to be praised for not rushing the game out when it could obviously have used a quick cash injection.

In any case, Deep Silver has confirmed a multiplatform release for the post-apocalyptic shooter on May 14. Last time THQ put a vague release window to Last Light, it pushed it back until March, the most recent in a series of delays. The Metro Twitter account said this further wait will add a “final layer of polish”.

“Since it has been made public that we took over the Metro franchise, the fans keep asking for a release date,” Deep Silver executive Menno van der Bill said in a press release.

“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.”

Deep Silver is a parent company of Koch Media, and also publishes the Dead Island, Risen and Sacred franchises.

commieharps,

Wouldn’t be trusting a day 1 purchase from something that now has a new company owning it; likely they changed a few things to how they see fit.
But it’ll be a good game if it follows the formula of the first.

I still can’t play the last one with everything cranked to full and get a decent framerate, hoping this one is far more optimized.

I highly doubt much/anything was changed. That’s a very wild accusation :|
