Metro: Last Light has apparently sold more units in one week than its predecessor Metro 2033 managed in three months.
Publisher Deep Silver has not released specific sales figures for the shooter sequel, but was quick to point out that its worldwide sales are far surpassing the original.
Although Metro: Last Light failed to match its forebear's opening-week sales in the UK, Deep Silver noted that it has shifted more units in the US than Metro 2033 has in its three-year lifespan.
The PC version is said to have been particularly successful, tripling Metro 2033's worldwide sales during its first week on the market.
Metro: Last Light debuted at the top of the all-formats software charts in numerous European territories, including the UK, when it was released last month.
The game is available for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.
