Sadly THQ has confirmed that Metro: Last Light isn’t in development for Wii U. The game was originally shown off during last years E3 showreel focussing on third-party Wii U titles. THQ global brand manager Mark Madsen says that the development team really wanted to concentrate their efforts on the forthcoming Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC versions of the game.
“It’s not in development.”
“If it does happen, it won’t sim-ship with the other SKUs, but if the opportunity arises we’ll take a look at it.”
“I don’t think it was a bit too early [to show the game at E3]. As we got along in the development process, we just really wanted to focus on what we knew, focus on PS3, 360 and PC.”
“The verdict is out on what we can do to maximise the code for the Wii U, and we’ll see [what happens].”
