Joystiq has reported that Metro: Last Light now has an official release date of May 14th for North America and May 17th for Europe. While the title being pushed back to May more than likely has to do with the recent THQ troubles, the three day delay for European gamers is a bit of a mystery. I’ll be the first to claim this is due racism because I’m not willing to accept more reasonable excuses.
Even though I had luke warm feelings towards the original Metro, I’m really looking forward to what refinements, if any the sequel will bring. Outside of the STALKER series, Metro was one of the most atmospheric games I have ever played.
