Metro: Last Light not happening on Wii U

THQ confirms that it is no longer in development

The sequel to Metro: 2033, known as Metro: Last Light will be dropping one of its shipping SKUs. In a surprise decision, THQ has confirmed that the Wii U version of the game is no longer in development.

This means game will not be shipping with the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC versions of the game when it arrives in 2013. The decision comes as somewhat of a surprise to Wii U fans who know that the game was a part of the demo real that Nintendo showed at E3 last year.

Apparently, while the Wii U version of the game is no longer in development at this point, the book on it may not be closed forever yet. While it will not ship with the other versions, the jury is out on whether the developers might be able to optimize the code on the Wii U version; and if so, then maybe a release could be possible. It would seem that they are a long way from answering that question.

Our sources say that the odds are slim right now that a Wii U version would be released. In addition, whispers claim that issues that are specific to the Wii U’s development have made the decision necessary. While THQ has not directly confirmed that this is the case, the rumors of the need to enhance and maximize the code do suggest that the performance of the game on the Wii U system isn’t up to snuff. It is hard to tell what this might mean.
