Rumour already had it that Dead Space 2 was in production – plus, we were teased about it just the other day – so there was little surprise when EA officially announced the sequel earlier today.

According to the press release Isaac Clarke, main protagonist of Dead Space, will be “taking the fight to the Necromorphs” this time around. New weapons, characters and “epic zero-G environments” will be packed into this new instalment.

“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.”

Hype machine, go!
