4A Games and now Deep Silver’s Metro: Last Light won’t be coming to next-gen consoles. This was revealed by producer Huw Beynon.
However, that doesn’t mean they aren’t making a next-gen version though. According to Beynon, they are and it’s the PC version, which he claims is the “one of, if not the best looking game you can actually buy.”
If someone asks me are we doing a next-gen version – well, yes we are. It’s the PC. We’re one of the few studios out there that have a proven piece of tech that’s built for high-end PCs. I firmly believe that the PC version of Metro: Last Light is one of, if not the best looking game you can actually buy, period, at the moment. We’re still proud of how we’ve managed to adapt that for the current generation of consoles.
So does this mean a PS4 version is out of the cards, then? Beynon claims it’s a “business decision at the end of the day,” and adds, “It’ll depend a lot on what the studio wants to do next. I don’t doubt it’s something we could do, but it’s not something that’s actively happening at the moment.”
Given how good the last Metro game looked, I doubt fans will mind this too much, no?
Expect Metro: Last Light to hit the PC, Xbox 360 and the PS3 later this May.
