Deep Silver announced that it is pleased with the the first week sales of Metro Last Light. The publisher says the game “has enjoyed a stunning first week of sales, significantly outselling its predecessor Metro 2033 over the same launch period.”

“We are delighted with the deserved critical and commercial success the game has achieved, and hope that this success represents a statement of intent for future quality titles from Deep Silver,” said Deep Silver’s international commercial director Menno van der Bil.

The PC version more than tripled Metro 2033‘s worldwide sales over the same period and more boxed copies have sold in its first week than the entire lifespan of Metro 2033 in the U.S.
