UPDATE: Kotaku reports from today's THQ investor call that the upcoming Metro 2033 sequel will in fact be titled Metro 2033: Last Light. The sequel is being prepped for a release next year. Stay tuned for more information as soon as we have it.

ORIGINAL STORY: A Metro 2033 sequel has already been confirmed under the title Metro 2034, but some new evidence suggests that THQ might be changing the name to stick with the Metro 2033 moniker.

Popular Internet video game sleuth supererogatory uncovered the new title on his Twitter account. THQ has registered several websites for a product seemingly titled "Metro 2033: Last Light." The registered domains include metro2033lastlight.com, lastlightgame.com, and metrolastlight.com.

We've reached out to THQ to find out if this is in fact the new name for Metro 2033's sequel or just a spin-off product of some sort, but we have yet to hear back. Whatever it ends up being, I thought Metro 2033 was fantastic, so I'm looking forward to whatever is next for the franchise.
