Metro 2033: Last Light confirmed

Looks like the sequel to Metro 2033 won’t be taking us to 2034 after all; THQ confirmed the sequel’s name to be Metro 2033: Last Light during their earning conference call yesterday. CEO Brian Farrell announced the news which had been spreading in rumor form ever since THQ registered Last Light-related domain names.

We can see the pattern sort of developing here already; much like Activision’s plans to alternate Call of Duty devs year-over-year, it seems like THQ will be alternating between the Metro and Homefront franchises year-over-year. That’s just a little theory of mine, but if its true then we should see this sequel in early 2012.
