THQ have confirmed the development of a sequel to Metro 2033 which will also be available in 3D.

Speaking with CVG at E3, THQ's core games VP Danny Bilson confirmed the sequel will be called 2034 and will be one of four titles they are developing in 3D. The others being De Blob 2: The Underground, Saint's Row 3DS and a 3D version of Metro 2033.

"We're showing Metro 2033 in 3D right now, which Nvidia is showing as one of their key demo products," he said.

"We're going to be doing a 3D version of that on Metro 2034 - the sequel. And there will be some engineering costs there, but that's in our lowest cost centre in the world. Those games are unbelievably reasonable, they're built in Kiev."

"Some people were confused about why we'd go into a market where there's only one percent TVs," Bilson added. "It's about a great game and a plus up on the marketing side. We're there at low risk and high quality, but, again, we'll have to see how that market grows and what value is there."
