(RUMOR) - Visceral Job Listing Suggests Dante’s Inferno 2
Even if you’re not looking for a job in game development, you might still be interested in a new job listing from Visceral Games -- especially if you enjoyed Dante’s Inferno. The Gamasutra listing was picked up on by Superannuation, and judging by the project description, it looks like Visceral may indeed be working on Dante’s Inferno 2.
"This project is the sequel to a major new IP at the award-winning Visceral Games, creators of Dead Space and Dante’s Inferno," the project description explains. Since Dead Space and Dante’s Inferno are indeed the only two recent new IP’s at Visceral Games, and since we already know they’re working on Dead Space 2, the process of elimination leaves us with Dante’s Inferno 2. Sure, the listing could in fact be for the still-in-development Dead Space 2, but that seems unlikely; Dead Space 2 is named elsewhere in the job post, so if this position was for that project, Visceral probably would have straight-up said so.
There’s also the fact that Jonathan Knight, executive producer of Dante’s Inferno, has previously expressed his desire to make a sequel. Talking about the difficulty of potentially making a franchise out of self-contained work of classic literature, Knight said that it’s "a problem I hope to have to solve by earning the right to do a follow up."
Still, none of this amounts to an official announcement, so we’ll have to wait and see what Visceral-owner Electronic Arts has in store.
