Metro Last Light Dev: THQ ‘Made A Mistake’ In Not Marketing Metro 2033

A developer at Metro: Last Light studio 4A Games said THQ ‘made a mistake’ in not marketing its predecessor Metro 2033 'until it was too late'. (Metro 2033, Metro: Last Light, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

THQ was too stupid to under the quality of Metro;2033.

I recently played Metro 2033. I loved the game. Too bad the marketing wasn't around to hook me when it came out.

They also fudged up by not bringing it to the PS3. Why a company that is in a bad financial situation would not make a game for all platforms possible is beyond me, then again, their poor business decisions is why they are not in business anymore.

THQ still isn't as inept as LucasArts.

But yea, they made some pretty poor decisions. And I really didn't like how THQ handled DLC. I hope DS will be better, but Risen 2 had disk-locked content, which is where I personally draw the line.

They never marketed the first one, I remember picking it up in 2010 and loving the game, but I didn't know another person with the game on the 360.

Ya think? Many companies do this. There r too many games today to not give a game its best shot by marketing.

For anyone interested in the story I suggest reading the book. Its really good and really brings a new understanding to the game.

I have grown quite fond of Russian sci-fi.

They didn't make that much of a mistake, since you are working on a sequel.
