Metro: Last Light, THQ and 4A Games’ atmospheric first-person shooter set in a post-apocalyptic world, will launch in early 2013 without multiplayer.
While an online component was never confirmed for this survival-horror title, the developers had mentioned plans to include some sort of competitive feature. Now, it looks like all of the focus will be on the campaign.
“Throughout the development of Metro: Last Light a small, dedicated team had been working on a number of multiplayer prototypes,” the post reads. “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.”
There’s a possibility that Last Light could get multiplayer down the road via some sort of expansion, but for now, assume that this is a ticket for one.
