EA Not Commenting On Dead Space 2, 3 Speculation

Good news "horror in space" fans! Dante’s Inferno developer Visceral Games has (unsurprisingly) announced that a sequel to their 2008 sci-fi gore-fest Dead Space is currently in the works for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC.

Dead Space 2 executive producer Steve Papoutsis said in a statement:

"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."

The official announcement also mentioned “taking the fight to the Necromorphs,” which also seems to suggest we could see Isaac visiting some less than hospitable terrestrial environs during the course of his latest bloody adventure, perhaps even a Necromorph home planet. That's my interpretation/hope anyway.

What kinds of gameplay/weapons/settings are you hoping to see in Dead Space 2?
