Metro: Last Light Will Not Feature Multiplayer

http://www.enterthemetro.com/us/news...nouncement_us/

Since our E3 demo back in June, many of you have been asking about the multiplayer component of Metro: Last Light. We wanted to share some information with you, the Metro community, first.

Throughout the development of Metro: Last light a small, dedicated team had been working on a number of multiplayer prototypes. After E3, we decided to fold this multiplayer team back into the main group and focus 100% of the studio’s resources on the single player campaign. As a result, Metro: Last Light will not ship with a multiplayer component.

Your response to our E3 demo made it very clear that although there was a lot of interest and intrigue around Metro’s multiplayer, the single player campaign is what the fanbase cares about the most.

We feel this is the right decision for the game and have put together a brief Q&A with a few more details below, hopefully they answer many of your questions. Thank you for being a part of our community and as always, we’d love to hear your comments!



Q: You said Metro will not ship with multiplayer. Does that mean we might see Metro MP as DLC or a standalone release at a later date?

A: Right now we’re 100% focused on the single player campaign and not thinking beyond that. We don’t like throwing away work though, it’s a project we could potentially return to after Metro: Last Light ships.

Q: Can you tell us what the multiplayer mode was going to be like?

A: For the reasons above, we’re going to keep that under wraps for now!

Q: Why did you commit to a multiplayer mode in the first place?

A: We are gamers at the studio and really wanted to bring the world of Metro to life in a multiplayer environment. It was a decision made by us at 4A from the outset and THQ have since been supportive every step of the way, including our decision to put multiplayer on hold. In hindsight, it was probably a mistake to announce it when we did, but we’re an enthusiastic team and wanted to be open about what we were making!

Q: How much better would the single player campaign have been if you’d just focused on that right from the start?

A: Fortunately, we never dedicated too many resources to the MP component beyond prototyping – it never entered full production. By making the decision when we did, we think the single player campaign will benefit as a result.

Q: Does this decision change Metro’s release date in any way?

A: No. Metro is still on target for release in early 2013

Fantastic news! MP would ruin the game. Another game I cannot wait for!

It better not have MP, every game doesn't need it as its just a waste of money for developers. Why bother making a MP that dies a few weeks after release.

I know I'm a bit late in reading this but single player only game is amazing. Maybe they'll spoil us with a spec ops/fear 3 system of extra fun in SP.

I'm up in the air on this. I wouldn't mind seeing a multiplayer, how many times can you play single player campaign before you switch to another game? At least with a multiplayer you get a little more life out of the game. I was a fan of Bioshock 2 multiplayer and Call of Juarez BIB also.

it may have some multi coming. maybe 5 pieces of dlc including multiplayer.its likely this is a newer development after them being purchased by koch media.
id really love them to have some kind of coop. with all the mutants and different factions the universe is really ripe for some zombie type or even mission based coop. really i always have the most fun in survival/round type of coop. anyway anything like that would be amazing.

No, it's not. If you had been following this game, you would know that the devs long ago discussed the idea of making the multiplayer a post-launch DLC and seemed interested in doing so.

Co-op would be nice, though.

Honestly, I really enjoyed the first game, but when they announced MP a couple of months back, I shied away from this one. But now... with a POSSIBLITY of future MP... I'm going for it.

This game looks more interesting that they are focusing sololy on singleplayer now.

Actually the person your're quoting is correct but it is a( new) rumor.

If ever bought MP into Metro: Last Light then it would be huge letdown, ruined and stupid just like Tomb Raider and God of War: Ascension's huge disappointed MPs. I am so happy this is not. Actually love single-player alone stand game.

I agree. It's a game for it's story which is great if you played the first one and read the books. Adding multiplayer to this would be like how Crystal Dynamics added multiplayer to Tomb Raider, just unnecessary in my opinion. Personally can't wait for this one next week!

Good. The game doesn't need Multiplayer at all. It's one of those games I couldn't see having it.

Good to hear. Some form of co-op might have been acceptable...
