Deep Silver Clarify About Making Metro More Accessible

Last week at gamescom Deep Silver’s Klemens Kundratitz said that the publisher was looking to make the Metro franchise more accessible to a wider audience. That message was met by some worry, with some thinking this meant the Metro games would ditch certain elements, in a sense dumbing it down.

Now Deep Silver has taken to its blog to say that will not be the case, and have cleared up what was meant by appealing to a larger audience.

“We understand the concern, and we would like to reassure the Metro fanbase that Deep Silver has absolutely no intention of compromising Metro’s unique DNA. We completely understand that it is the passion and evangelism of our fans that allowed Metro to grow from a cult hit to genuine, bonafide hit.

A new Metro game… will build on the bleak, post apocalyptic pillars of atmosphere, immersion, challenge and depth that sets this franchise apart from the crowd.”

Instead the way Deep Silver will try to appeal is by better marketing and launching it on more platforms. That will begin with the launch of Metro: Last Light on Linux and Mac on September 10th.

I enjoyed Metro: Last Light and gave it an 8/10 in our review.
