The sequel to THQ’s sleeper hit Metro 2033 has been delayed. Metro: Last Light was originally slated for release at the end of 2012, and will instead come out in the fourth quarter of the company’s 2013 fiscal calendar. On people calendars, that means we can now expect the game sometime between January and March of 2013.
So it turns out that the delay isn’t going to be a massive one; it’ll just be a few months later than we had hoped. Plenty of time to polish up any glaring development hiccups, and it’s definitely better for a game to be late than broken.
