Dead Space 2 May Have Multiplayer

Yum Yum!

I officially declare today ‘International Dead Space 2 News Day’, although I don’t want to be giving EA’s PR department any ideas. This time next week we’ll probably see a Dead Space 2 flag flying about Buckingham Palace, but don’t hold me to that.

Anyway, a job listing by EA seems to suggest that Dead Space 2 will contain some sort of multiplayer aspect. Part of the listing states that the successful applicant will “Own the level design for the online game, be able to work collaboratively with Creative Director and Online Producer to create extremely fun, satisfying and polished multiplayer levels.”

Of course, this doesn’t mean there will be multiplayer in the game, it just means that they’re building something that may or may not be scrapped at a later date. With a lot of developers thinking they have to shove some sort of multiplayer aspect into a game these days I won’t be surprised if Dead Space 2 turns out to have it, but I’m going to bet that popular opinion would want it to be some sort of co-op mode and not some crappy deathmatch against Necromorphs.

Well, that’s that then, although I’m pretty sure they’ll be some other Dead Space 2 related news sometime soon. Same time tomorrow then?
