4A Games’ upcoming first person shooter, Metro: Last Light, will be “one of, if not the best looking game you can actually buy,” producer Huw Beynon told Eurogamer. It’s not surprising to hear this from 4A, their last game, Metro 2033, was a pretty haunting eye popper. The game’s immersion from the shadows might not have been possible, after THQ auctioned off all of their assets, it didn’t look like anyone would pick up the Metro team. It’s great to see yet another game make it out of the THQ fire and stay on schedule. Beynon discussed how the move affected the game’s development process.
“It’s been an interesting few months watching the THQ situation unfold, and the uncertainty surrounding that,” Beynon told Eurogamer. “I’m kind of delighted with the instant enthusiasm and commitment shown by Deep Silver. It’s been disruptive for the studio – there’s a lot of paperwork, figuring out how their QA works. There’s some learning to be done there, but we’ve got a bit more time to figure that stuff out.” If you were wondering if there is going to be a next gen version of the game, don’t worry, he stated that the game will also receive a next gen version as well, but you’ll have to wait for more details on it down the road.
