After c++ what would be the best language to learn as a future game programmer.

Maybe dip into C, since C and C++ are used in game dev as they are fast low level and a strong language.
Learn some OpenGL, DirectX, SDL. etc.
Then you understand the gfx handling of C++

It depends what kind of games you want to be making? Do you want to work on triple A titles? Or make I-Phone or Android apps? Something else?

Although I prefer to use C++, I have heard that C# is good for game programming.
Or, like Drakon said, you can use OpenGL, DirectX, SDL, SFML, Allegro, etc.. That way, you can still use C++, since you are familiar with it.
