Metro: Last Light has been slightly delayed as it switched publishers in the wake of THQ's collapse, but not massively so. New publisher Deep Silver today announced that it'll arrive on May 14 after a little extra work, back a bit from the planned March launch. 4A Games' post-apocalyptic FPS is headed to PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
"The new release date is the ideal way to strike the balance between bringing the best out of Metro: Last Light and not keep the fans waiting longer than necessary," Dr. Klemens Kundratitz, CEO of Deep Silver's parent company Koch Media, said in today's announcement.
"We won't leave that time unexploited and will work closely together with 4A Games to make the game even better. It will receive all the attention it deserves."
Koch Media paid $5.8 million for Metro as THQ sold off its franchises and studios. Koch Media also picked up Saints Row developer Volition from THQ, for $22.3 million. The new Saints Row is still on track to launch this year.
