Metro Last Light Dev: “Jason Rubin Was Only THQ President To Visit Studio”
This was in the 10 year history that 4A Games shares with the former publisher.
It’s already well known that Ukranian developer 4A Games, who recently released Metro: Last Light for the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC, had a rough time developing the game.
As creative director Andrew Prokhorov revealed to Polygon, “It is a fact that our work conditions are worse than those of other developers outside [of the] Ukraine”. However, it is accepted that “better conditions are earned, and we strive to do this as soon as possible.”
However, one surprising detail was that while 4A Games was still under THQ, recent ex-President Jason Rubin was the only president in the publisher’s 10 year history with the developer to visit them in Ukraine.
“For the last couple of months before the THQ bankruptcy we have been working together with Jason. Need to mention, for the last 10 years of working with THQ (including STALKER time), he was the only THQ president who was visiting our office, sending us feedback as to game improvements, and discussing game troubles with the team.”
