Deep Silver: PS4 version of Metro: Last Light not in development
Deep Silver has put an end to rumors that arose out of an interview with Ukranian tech website ITCChannel. During the interview, 4A Games creative director Andrew Prokhorov said a few things that suggested Metro: Last Light would be released on PS4, and that it could come with the original game. It was also believed that the game could have a DLC season pass with five pieces of additional content and a multiplayer component that could release separately.
Turns out, some of Prokhorov's comments were lost in translation.
"It is no secret that 4A Games do want to release an SDK for Metro, finish the extremely promising multiplayer component and release this in some form, and investigate a PlayStation 4 version provided it makes commercial sense," Deep Silver told Joystiq.
"Although no development has started on any next-gen console versions [of Metro: Last Light]. We have confirmed these hopes and ideas plenty of times before.
“However, all these ideas are just ideas at the moment. It will be some time before we can officially commit to any of these projects or suggest when they might materialize. They genuinely might all happen, but equally none of them might happen. Anyone expecting Metro: Last Light as a PS4 launch game is probably going to be disappointed.”
Earlier this week the publisher confirmed Metro: Last Light officially went gold. The FPS sequel to Metro 2033 will be available for PlayStation 3, PC and Xbox 360 on May 14.
