Metro Last Light

Metro: Last Light not landing on Wii U for the time being

According to THQ global brand manager Mark Madsen, Metro: Last Light is not in development for Wii U. For all those who still remember Nintendo’s conference last year at E3, Metro: Last Light was included in the promo reel for the Wii U. Madsen states that he doesn’t “think it was a bit too early [to show the game at E3].” In addition, “As we got along in the development process, we just really wanted to focus on what we knew, focus on PS3, 360 and PC.”

Don’t lost hope, though, you prospective Wii U buyer, you. Though Metro: Last Light might not be a Wii U title, for now, if it does become a Wii U title, “It won’t sim-ship with the other SKUs.” At the moment, though, THQ and developer 4A Games don’t know “what we can do to maximise the code for the Wii U,” according to Madsen.

Metro: Last Light is a game I’m really looking forward to, so for it to potentially not be a Wii U game won’t cause me to lose any sleep, but still, for potential Wii U owners, it could sting a little. As such, Metro: Last Light is slated to launch sometime in Q1 2013 for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC.
