Yes, that’s right folks- the much-rumored sequel to one of 2008’s most critically acclaimed titles has been confirmed by Visceral Games. This great news coming off of the disappointing sales figures of the Wii prequel, Dead Space Extraction. This is the release from friend of The Gamesmen, Steve Papoutsis:
“We’re thrilled to jump back into the series, making the next chapter in Isaac’s journey,” added Steve Papoutsis, Executive Producer of Dead Space 2. “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 fact of Dead Space 2’s existence has been all but confirmed for some time now, so it’s nice to finally have something concrete to grasp. Now we have more Necromorph dismemberment to look forward to.
