Deep Silver wants to publish more games in the Metro franchise, but tweak the next installment to appeal to a broader audience. Dr. Klemens Kundratitz, CEO of Deep Sliver, told Joystiq that he was pleased with the sales of Metro: Last Light and looked forward to more games in the series. While he was careful to emphasize that he wasn’t specifically announcing a sequel to the claustrophobic shooter, he did say that Deep Silver would continue to collaborate with Metro 2033 author Dmitry Glukhovsky and developer 4A Games on future endeavors.
“I’m very glad we acquired that brand. While it launched in a very dry space in the gaming calendar this year, it still got a lot of attention. Our ambition is to absolutely continue with that brand and we will also, in the next phase, look to making it more accessible for a broader gamer audience.”
Deep Silver acquired the Metro license from THQ’s bankruptcy asset auction for $5.9 million in January.
