Metro: Last Light Loses Multiplayer

The multiplayer component of upcoming FPS title, Metro: Last Light has been cancelled. 4A Games made a statement via the game’s blog, citing a desire to concentrate on the single-player campaign as the reason.

The decision was made after E3, but has only just been confirmed publically. Despite keen fan interest for details about the multiplayer, the developers realised that the single-player experience was what fans really care about. While the game won’t ship with any multiplayer, we could still see something later on.

The devs said, “We don’t like throwing away work though, it’s a project we could potentially return to after Metro: Last Light ships.” So it would seem almost a given that the multiplayer side of the game will see the light of day eventually. There’s nothing worse than tacked on multiplayer so we applaud 4A games decision to refocus their resources, as Metro: Last Light is looking pretty damn sweet so far. Check out my Gamescom Preview for my early impressions.
