Metro: Last Light is heading to Linux, you all know this by now and we even spoke to the developers to get it confirmed (article here if you missed it), now the publisher has written an official statement in support of a Linux version of their AAA shooter!
This is awesome:
QuoteHowever, Deep Silver will seek to make the world of Metro more accessible to a broader audience - through a commitment to ever higher product quality; through greater strategic investment in the brand; and, in the immediate term, through the release of dedicated Mac and Linux versions of Metro: Last Light. This is just the first stage of a broader initiative to bring Metro to a wider audience, without compromising the product's strengths.
So you can be sure it is thanks to their publisher that 4A Games are able to do this, looks like Deep Silver may be getting more and more Linux friendly as time goes on!
They also confirmed via twitter it will be this year:
Besides a Mac version, a Linux version of Metro: Last Light is also in development and scheduled for release later this year.— Metro: Last Light (@MetroVideoGame) August 27, 2013
