THQ’s instability has GameStop pull Metro: Last Light PC from digital store
GameStop has removed Metro: Last Light from their list of downloadable PC games. Anyone interested in pre-ordering the game now can no longer do so and if anyone has pre-ordered the game already, then he/she is eligible for a refund from GameStop’s customer service.
A spokesperson for GameStop told GameSpot that the decision to pull Metro: Last Light was taken out of fear of THQ’s current unstable status.
However, the post-apocalyptic shooter is still available for pre-order on the consoles. On asking whether the store plans to pull the console versions as well, GameStop’s vice president of public and investor relations Matt Hodges said:
Essentially, due to THQ’s current financial situation and uncertainty of delivery, in order to protect our consumers we removed the ability to pre-purchase that specific game.
Metro: Last Light isn’t the only game of THQ that has been pulled off the store. South Park: The Stick of Truth is also not available for pre-order.
Last December THQ filed for bankruptcy which eventually caused the publisher to sell all of its assets and franchises. The selling process is still underway with a couple of hitches which need to be taken care of first.
