Rumour: Dante’s Inferno II

An advert on Gamasutra posted by Visceral Games seems to indicate Dante will be getting a second outing. The job posting is as follows:

Visceral Games is looking for an experienced Environment Artist for an existing action/adventure franchise. This is a major opportunity to contribute to a bold new franchise, heavily backed by the EA Games Label. This project is the sequel to a major new IP at the award-winning Visceral Games, creators of Dead Space and Dante’s Inferno.

Now you don’t have to be a genius to realise that as Visceral have only created Dante and Dead Space and we know Dead Space 2 is a good way in production. Combine that with the phrase “new IP” which seems to indicate it was their most recent release and everything points to Dante. Helpfully, Visceral then give the game away completely.

The game sequel will set new quality standards and make the franchise the world-leader in the action/melee-combat genre.

I think Dante certainly fits the ‘action/melee-combat genre’ more than Isaac Clarke and his kinky gimp suits. Talking of suits, Visceral if you are reading this can you keep Dante in the same costume he was wearing at the end of your first game? Thanks.
