THQ to rename Metro 2034?

Last Light URLs snapped up.

Forthcoming FPS sequel Metro 2034 is to be renamed Metro 2033: Last Light, if a set of new URL registrations are to be believed.

As spotted by keen-eyed Tweeter Superannuation, publisher THQ grabbed www.lastlight.com, www.metrolastlight.com and www.metro2033lastlight.com earlier this week, suggesting a name change is imminent.

Developed by Ukrainian studio 4A games, the brilliantly bleak Metro 2033 came out last March on PC and Xbox 360. Set largely in post-apocalyptic Moscow's mutant-infested underground, it won a solid 8/10 from Eurogamer's Jim Rossignol.

Very little has been revealed about its forthcoming sequel since it was first unveiled in June, other than that THQ intends to give it a little more marketing TLC than it did to the somewhat-neglected original.

No release date for the game has yet been set.
