We should have quite some acting skills to act surprised upon the news that Electronic Arts is planning a Dead Space sequel, but that’s not the point: in the end, Dead Space was a quality horror game and Dead Space 2 will certainly be one of the most anticipated future EA games.
Details about Dead Space 2 are pretty few at the moment, but I am sure things will change in the near future. Until then, we can feel Electronic Arts’ excitement in their words:
“Like so many gamers worldwide, we love the Dead Space franchise and are very excited to announce a new game in the series,” said Nick Earl, Senior VP and Group General Manager at EA. “Visceral Games is quickly becoming known for delivering high-quality, action-packed games. Dead Space 2 is on target to deliver a jaw-dropping experience gamers won’t soon forget.”
“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.”
Plot-wise, all we know about the game is that Issac is making a comeback and this time he will be calling the shots instead of just doing his best to survive. Of course, this could have a lot of meanings…
