Koch Media, the new custodians of the Metro IP, have finally put a firm release date on the anticipated sequel. Metro: Last Light will launch on May 17th for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360, which includes a little delay for last-minute polishing.
“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.
As the videogame publishing arm of Koch Media, Deep Silver will handle the Metro and Saints Row franchises after THQ's collapse.
