THQ CEO Brian Farrell confirmed the title of the next Metro game in an investor call yesterday evening, following the grim underground setting of Metro 2033 with 'Metro: Last Light', which will presumably feature more fierce irradiated subterranean mutants to fight in a dank, post-apocalyptic Russia.
Domain names 'Metro2033LastLight.com', 'MetroLastLight.com' and 'LastLightGame.com' registered last month hinted as much, but this confirmation now makes it official. Formerly, the game had been referred to as Metro 2034, but Metro: Last Light sounds a bit more catchy.
There are no further details on Metro: Last Light at present, but expect to hear more in the very near future, especially since THQ core games boss Danny Bilson has claimed that the game will be getting a "first-class marketing campaign".
