The news is not surprising, but EA has for the first time officially confirmed what we all suspected – Dead Space 2 is in development for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC.
Much like its predecessor, Dead Space 2 is being developed by Visceral Games. It will once again star protagonist Isaac Clarke and promises a wealth of new weapons
“Like so many gamers worldwide, we love the Dead Space franchise and are very excited to announce a new game in the series,” EA’s senior VP and group general manager Nick Earl stated.
The game’s executive producer Steve Papoutsis added: “We’re thrilled to jump back into the series, making the next chapter in Isaac’s journey. The infection continues to spread throughout space and our hero Isaac Clarke is the only person able to contain it.
“There are still loads of Necromorphs that need killing. In Dead Space 2, not everything is exactly as it seems. Expect plot twists that will surprise you and a huge cast of twisted, disgusting monsters that are sure to scare the daylights out of you.”
