Good Morning Game Heads!! So we all know that THQ has been selling their assets in a bankruptcy sale. So media giant Koch Media acquired the rights to the Metro series. Well we have word now that Metro: Last Light will be released on May 14th in the US and May 17th across Europe on PS3, 360 and PC.
The game’s new publisher Deep Silver will be releasing the game. Its parent company, Koch Media, acquired the property for $5.8 million in said THQ bankruptcy sale. Last Light had originally been lined up for a release in March.
“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 Koch Media CEO Klemens Kundratitz. “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.”
I was looking forward to Metro: Last Light sometime this month but I can wait a few months so long as they get it right. So you have time now to pick up the other Metro games and catch up because on May 14th “Its about to go down…”
