Deep Silver has announced a May 17th 2013 European release date (May 14 in North America) for Metro: Last Light on PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, in the first formal statement on the game since its parent company Koch Media acquired the rights to the game during THQ's bankruptcy auction.
“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.”
"Since it has been made public that we took over the Metro franchise, the fans keep asking for a release date. 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.”, said Menno van der Bil, International Commercial Director, Deep Silver.
Metro: Last Light has been in development at the independent Ukraine studio 4A Games.
No new trailers or screenshots have been released since the property changed hands, but you can watch the last video from THQ, from December 2012, below.
