‘Metro: Last Light’ sells more in first week than lifetime of ‘Metro 2033’

Metro Last Light

With the Xbox One and Playstation 4 releasing later this year, it was expected by most that the industry would be on a downswing of sorts. For a game like Metro: Last Light that doesn’t feature a huge following, the general feel is that the title may not sell incredibly well.

While we still haven’t received actual sales numbers, comparisons for how well the game has done were made. Deep Silver announced that Metro: Last Light sold through more boxed units in its first week of sale than Metro 2033 has managed lifetime to date in the US.

The game has also done extremely well in various European countries where it has found itself at number one on the sales charts. The team at 4A Games was extremely gracious when being asked about the success of Metro: Last Light.

4A Games are honoured by the reception our latest project has received,” said Andrew Prokhorov, Creative Director at 4A Games. “We are a small but dedicated team who are lucky to have been given the creative freedom and support to make the kind of experience we dream, as gamers, of playing. Our work on Metro: Last Light continues with new single player DLC, and we look forward to revealing future projects from the team. We want to thank all the Metro fans for support we have received.”
