Metro franchise will “absolutely continue”, Deep Silver very pleased with performance

Metro: Last Light

By on August 27, 2013 at 4:37 pm

More Metro games are on the way, as publishers Deep Silver express their satisfaction with the reception and sales of the recently-released Metro: Last Light.

“I’m very glad we acquired that brand,” said Deep Silver CEO Dr. Klemens Kundratitz to Joystiq. “While it launched in a very dry space in the gaming calendar this year, it still got a lot of attention. Our ambition is to absolutely continue with that brand.”

Perhaps worryingly for hardcore Metro 2033 fans who were dissatisfied with Last Light, Kundratitz went out to say that they would “in the next phase, look to making it more accessible for a broader gamer audience.”

However, Kundratitz doesn’t seem worried about straying too far from the author’s vision — because the author works with the development team.

“It is true with a license you have to be aligned with the license holder. In this case it’s [Metro 2033 author] Dmitry Glukhovsky who holds the license and he’s a great guy. He enjoys the game, the success of the game and we have a good relationship. He is a great contributor.”

So, Dead Space to Dead Space 3? I can handle that.

 

Scary words indeed, but I’ll be interested to what degree they take the word accessible.

Their Humble Bundle was great, maybe that could of added to their success too?
