Global brand manager of THQ Mark Madsen has put a downer on Wii U fans as he announced in an interview that Metro: Last Light is no longer confirmed for the system.

Speaking to website GameSpy, Madsen said that the game is not in development for Nintendo’s upcoming HD video game console, despite it being on the third party launch title reel at E3 last year.

“I don’t think it was a bit too early [to show the game at E3 2011]. As we got along in the development process, we just really wanted to focus on what we knew, focus on PS3, 360 and PC,”

“The verdict is out on what we can do to maximise the code for the Wii U, and we’ll see.”

THQ have had a spate of financial troubles lately and the game’s release date has been pushed back to “Q1 2013”, which will be sometime after the Wii U’s launch. The game is a sequel to the 2010 Microsoft exclusive Metro: 2033.

The game was one of the few titles announced to be in development on Wii U at it’s unveiling at E3 last year.
