Deep Silver wants to continue Metro franchise, make it more accessible

Publisher's CEO says he's "glad we acquired that brand"

Deep Silver has signalled its intention to continue the Metro series following the acquisition of the brand in January and the success of the second entry in the series, Metro: Last Light.

Deep Silver CEO Dr. Klemens Kundratitz told Joystiq: "While it launched in a very dry space in the gaming calendar this year, it still got a lot of attention.


"Our ambition is to absolutely continue with that brand and we will also, in the next phase, look to making it more accessible for a broader gamer audience."

First week Metro Last Light sales matched the total achieved by Metro 2033 in its opening three months, according to Deep Silver.

The publisher released the first of four planned Metro Last Light DLC packs last month.

In our Metro: Last Light review we said 4A's sequel is "gruelling, but worth the effort" and "a refreshing change from more traditional first-person shooters".
