One of this generations most intriguing and bloodcurdling sci-fi/horror shooter is getting a sequel. Don’t act surprised – you knew it was coming. Why wouldn’t they create a sequel to one of the most intense games release this gen? It only makes sense.
Even though EA never really confirmed that a sequel to Dead Space was coming even after we gave news that the game would, in fact, enter its production phases pretty soon, they have indeed spilled the beans a bit stating, “Electronic Arts has a pair of horror offerings for gamers. The publisher recently shopped Dead Space: Extraction for Wii, which is a prequel to last fall’s Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC hit. Dead Space 2 is in development for next year.”
Now, we all know how abominable the sales were for Dead Space: Extraction. It’s not something that EA was relatively happy about. But, knowing how well the first did on PS3, Xbox 360 and PC, I’m pretty sure the second one will truly satisfy fans of the first one. Extraction left a bad taste in EA’s mouth, and the only cure of this stink breath is to make up for the underperformed Wii title by releasing a more appeasing installment to the franchise. I, personally, enjoyed the first one – it scared the crap out of me a couple of times – so I’m definitely looking forward to a sequel.
Are you guys ready to own demonic creatures in your heavy space suit next year, or did the Wii’s version kind of chop down all expectations?
