The developers behind METRO:LAST LIGHT have decided to drop multiplayer at this time and focus solely on the single player campaign. In the Metro Blog they do a complete run down as to why they are dropping multiplayer, here are a few answers to a few questions about why they committed then dropped it now.

“We are gamers at the studio and really wanted to bring the world of Metro to life in a multiplayer environment. It was a decision made by us at 4A from the outset and THQ have since been supportive every step of the way, including our decision to put multiplayer on hold. In hindsight, it was probably a mistake to announce it when we did, but we’re an enthusiastic team and wanted to be open about what we were making!”

In all things civil, Multiplayer being dropped isn’t that much of a big deal because Metro:2033 didn’t need it because it was a solid single player experience, and other single player games are perfectly fine without multiplayer being tacked on for example Skyrim, Deus ex, Bioshock. If you wish to read more of the explanation as to why multiplayer is being dropped you can head on over to the METRO BLOG. We will keep you up to date on what will happen with Metro:Last Light but don’t worry it is still dated for a Early 2013 release date, its not being delayed or moved its staying on course just dropping its multiplayer feature.
