Metro: Last Light delayed to 2013

THQ opts to take more time on the shooter

THQ has announced that 4A Games' first-person shooter sequel Metro: Last Light won't be released until calendar year 2013.


According to the firm's latest release schedule, which was published alongside its third quarter financial results last night, the Metro 2033 sequel is now planned for release during the fourth-quarter of financial year 2013, meaning between January 1 and March 31, 2013. It was originally pegged for release at the tail end of this year.

Prior to the game's official announcement, THQ core games boss Danny Bilson said he believed the shooter had what it takes to 'compete with Call of Dutys'.
