Deep Silver Confirms Metro Series Will Continue

4A Games' atmospheric shooter series will "absolutely continue," Deep Silver has confirmed.

The publisher is very pleased with how Metro: Last Light performed, and has every intention of building upon the IP going forward. "I'm very glad we acquired that brand," Deep Silver CEO Dr. Klemens Kundratitz told Joystiq.

"While it launched in a very dry space in the gaming calendar this year, it still got a lot of attention. Our ambition is to absolutely continue with that brand and we will also, in the next phase, look to making it more accessible for a broader gamer audience."

Are you excited to see more of the Metro series? Do you think it is wise for them to take a more accessible approach going forward? After all, part of the Metro charm is its intense difficulty. Let us know in the comments below.
