Metro: Last Light Pulled From GameStop's Digital Store
Looking forward to Metro: Last Light? You should probably pack that excitement away, especially if you plan on buying the digital download version on your PC - US retailer GameStop has pulled the game from its Impulse distribution store.

Worse news yet for the shaky status of the game's release, is that customers who have already paid for the download in advance are being offered refunds. The physical disc version remains available for pre-order, however.

GameSpot spoke to GameStop's VP of public and investor relations, Matt Hodges, who confirmed the removal of the digital version of the game. "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."

THQ filed for bankruptcy in December, with a potential buyout by Clearlake Capital thwarted by creditors believing that such a move would lock potential suitors out of a bidding process. But now, it seems that the company's assets are to be sold title by title from tomorrow.
