Although it’s great to hear that Darksiders 2 will be released in the warmer part of this calendar year, one other major THQ property will not be seen until the company’s next fiscal year. The same financial report that we already reported about, lists Metro: Last Light as a Q1 2013 release. As a result, our digital vacations to the claustrophobic and poorly lit subway tunnels under Russia will have to be postponed.
While I was looking forward to shooting more radiation-based monsters this year, delays aren’t always a bad thing. There’s usually a good reason for them. In the end, if it means a better and more polished experience, then I’m all for it.
After all, the hope is there that 4A Games‘ Metro: Last Light will be even better than its great (and under-appreciated) predecessor, Metro: 2033. If you’ve yet to play that release, then it’s highly recommended that you use this extra time to do so.
