After Last Light’s Success, Deep Silver Plans to Continue Metro

Deep Silver has confirmed its plans to continue the Metro series after the acquisition of the brand this past January after the dissolution of publisher THQ. The series, which began with Metro 2033, saw the release of Metro: Last Light earlier this year.

Following the success of Last Light, Deep Silver CEO Dr. Klementz Kundratitz told Joystiq that the game received a lot of attention despite being released during a “very dry space in the gaming calendar.”

“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,” he said.

According to Deep Silver, sales for Metro: Last Light matched the total lifetime sales of Metro 2033 within just three months of its release.

The publisher released the first of four planned DLC packs last month, and plans to continue supporting the game.

We called the game an improvement in almost every way on its predecessor, and a challenging, atmospheric shooter in our review of Metro: Last Light.

“we will also, in the next phase, look to making it more accessible for a broader gamer audience”
So essentially, the current audience that made it successful isn’t good enough.

Ah, yes, “more accessible” for a “broader gamer audience.” Famous last words.

Woohoo! This is fantastic news. These people know how to make a great game (despite some bugs and glitches of course). I, personally, hope they don’t dumb their future production(s) down to bring in more of the Call of Duty/Battlefield type of gamers. If they can’t get into the Metro games, who needs them. Last Light and 2033 are an absolute gem.

Also, a S.T.A.L.K.E.R – Metro mashup would be awesome.

I’m not sure there is enough story left to continue with a decent sequel, but then again that went out of the window the moment they decided to make it more ‘accessible’ >:(
