Koch Media has announced a new Metro: Last Light release date of May 14, 2013 in Northern and Latin America and May 17 across Europe.
Former publisher THQ had planned to release the shooter sequel in March, but the launch window has changed since Koch Media bought the rights to the franchise earlier this year for $5.8 million.
Koch Media CEO Dr. Klemens Kundratitz said: “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. 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.”
Menno van der Bil, international commercial director for Koch Media’s games label Deep Silver, added: “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.”
