Metro 2033‘s follow-up is hotly anticipated by fans of the first game, released last spring, and THQ is on record promising a “first class” marketing campaign blowout for it at E3 in June.
Developer 4A Games’ technologically impressive original IP had a 3D-capable sequel greenlit before 2033 was even completed, but so far there’s been no official details, other than it’s title, Metro 2034. But is that indeed what it will be called?
Superannuation picked up the scent of a few domains recently secured by THQ, potentially pointing towards a new name for the second entry of the franchise. Websites Metro2033LastLight.com, MetroLastLight.com, and LastLightGame.com are being sat on by the publisher, with no announced projects to go along with them yet.
Assuming there isn’t an epilogue or DLC-type experience coming to bridge the first and second games, it looks like we might not be seeing a “Metro 2034″ on shelves. THQ will drop the first information on the shooter in just over a month, and it’s currently slated for sometime in 2012.
