Metro: LL first-week sales surpass 2033 lifetime sales photo



Deep Silver revealed that Metro: Last Light has been kicking some serious ass. In its first week alone, US retail sales eclipsed 2033's lifetime sales. Last Light sales on the PC tripled Metro 2033's worldwide, and across all formats worldwide Last Light has sold more units in its first week than Metro 2033 managed in three months.

“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.”

This is great news, and bodes well for 4A Games and the future of the Metro franchise.
