THQ confirms Metro: Last Light

Sequel to Metro 2033 gets an official name

THQ has confirmed that the sequel to 4A Games' Metro 2033 will be called Metro: Last Light.

The game was referred to as Metro 2034 until a number of THQ domain registrations - one of which included Last Light - suggested the sequel could receive a name change.


The first Metro game was based on a novel written by Russian author Dmitry Glukhovsky. It took place in a post-apocalyptic Russia where mutants roamed the streets and the climate had forced humans to move into the subway system, which doubled up as a nuclear bunker.

THQ core games boss Danny Bilson confirmed to CVG during E3 last year that the sequel would be playable in 3D.

He went on to say it will receive "a much more respectful" marketing push and that it'll have the ability to compete with "the Call of Dutys".
