4A Games has revealed that Metro: Last Light won’t feature any multiplayer mode at launch. According to the company, a small team was experimenting with some MP ideas for Metro: Last Light but after the E3 demo, 4A Games decided to focus entirely on the SP mode. This decision was made because the team believes that the single player campaign is what the fanbase cares about the most. Damn straight right.
The good news here is that THQ is fine with 4A Games’ decision. Does this mean that we should expect to see this MP mode as a DLC? Seems possible as the development team stated that they don’t like throwing away work and that this MP mode is a project they could potentially return to after Metro: Last Light ships.
4A Games believes that – by dedicating the entire team to it – the SP campaign will benefit from this move. Let’s just hope that the game won’t be filled with scripted sequences, quick-time events and invisible walls… things that were pretty evident on the E3 demo.
Metro: Last Light is currently planned for an early 2013 release on PC, X360 and PS3!
