Metro: Last Light Focusing Spotlight on Single-Player

Light the way

Developer 4A Games has decided to scrap Metro: Last Light’s multiplayer component, opting to concentrate its resources on creating an exceptional single-player campaign instead. The competitive mode was revealed shortly after the game’s initial announcement – a move that the studio feels was “probably a mistake”.

"Throughout the development of Metro: Last Light a small, dedicated team had been working on a number of multiplayer prototypes," the team wrote on its official blog. "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."

Whether multiplayer will be included as a post-release update is still undecided. "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."

Is multiplayer something you’re looking for from the post-apocalyptic shooter?

This is the best desicion a developer has made in a long time. I might move this up to a day-1 buy if I can after hearing this.
