Metro fans rejoice! While the future may be bleak for those who dwell in post-apocalyptic Moscow, the series itself has a very bright future. Deep Silver, the publisher whose parent company acquired the Metro IP when THQ was liquidated earlier this year, is very happy with the success of Metro: Last Light — enough so that they’re planning on continuing the series as well as it make it more accessible to a wider audience.
Deep Silver CEO Dr. Klemens Kundratitz told Joystiq “I’m very glad we acquired that brand. 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 and we will also, in the next phase, look to making it more accessible for a broader gamer audience.” Last Light is one of my favorite games of 2013, so I’m very much looking forward to seeing more of it in the future.
