Just over a month ago Visceral, the studio behind Dante’s Inferno and Dead Space was talking to Joystiq about their autonomy within EA and were questioned about the possibility of a sequel to Dante’s Inferno.
Their response was completely non-committal saying “I’m sure that if enough people are like, ‘I got 60 dollars for Purgatory or Paradiso,’ then we would make that game. But I don’t know. I don’t get to make those decisions,”.
Despite this vague denial about the possibility of the sequel we now know that it is, or at least was in development thanks to a blog bio by Joshua Rubin who is described as the sole writer of the unannounced project.
Recently, Joshua was the sole writer for a Major Unannounced Sequel from Visceral Studios at EA Games. (A hint…)
Possibly corroborating this is Rubin’s LinkedIn profile which states that he was working on an unannounced major sequel at Visceral from June 2010 to June 2011.
This is marked firmly as rumour for now, but as the original Dante’s Inferno was revealed at Spike’s VGAs in 2008, so fans may want to keep their eyes peeled at this year’s VGAs which take place in early December.
