Well, Metro: Last Light has been out for a few good weeks now, and Deep Silver seems fairly happy with its performance. The publisher today is announcing Metro: Last Light's success, and while no solid numbers were released, the game is definitely out-performing predecessor Metro 2033.
On PC alone, Last Light has actually trippled Metro 2033's worldwide sales across the same opening week period. In the United States (not North America), sales in the first week have already beaten 2033's lifetime sales.
Worldwide, Metro: Last Light has sold more in the first week than Metro 2033 managed in three months. In a number of European territories like Germany, Austria, Switzerland, France, and the UK, Last Light has occupied the top spot in game sales for four weeks straight.
And as happy as publisher Deep Silver is, developer 4A Games is terribly honored by the reception. Creative director Andrew Prokhorov released the following statement:
"4A Games are honoured by the reception our latest project has received. We are a small but dedicated team who are lucky to have been given the creative freedom and support to make the kind of experience we dream, as gamers, of playing. Our work on Metro: Last Light continues with new single player DLC, and we look forward to revealing future projects from the team. We want to thank all the Metro fans for support we have received."
If you're looking for more Metro, some DLC was recently announced, alongside a Season Pass.
We can honestly say that Last Light is a game worth experiencing. Aside from some seriously horrific moments, it's also one of the best-looking titles to come along. Check out our hardware and performance review to see how it'll run for you.
