Well now they are in Metro 2034 claims Bilson, and it's going to get a "more respectful push" in marketing from THQ. It was green-lit "before the other one shipped".
"The sequel's even more advanced in terms of the technology," said THQ's Danny Bilson. "The sequel's going to get a lot more support than the first one got both from product development at THQ and marketing."
There were certain things in Metro 2033, "even though it looked sensational, some of the shooting mechanics need to be better polished to compete with the Call of Dutys. They are this time. For marketing it'll get a much more respectful push."
"I'm a big supporter of that team in Kiev," continued Bilson. "It's an original Russian franchise. We don't want to mess with it and Americanize it."
"It's got its own point of view. Even though our guys in Agoura did a lot of the work on the fiction, this time it's still that vision. You're going to see a more polished game, you're going to see some crazy technology. We green-lit it before the other one shipped and you're going to see some of it at E3." This year's E3 takes place June 7-9.
