Dead Space 2 in development

The sequel to one of the best shooters of 2008 has started development, with the heavy lifting set to start in the next few months.

Visceral Games has a genuine top-tier franchise on their hands with Dead Space. The first was our Xbox 360 Game of the Year in 2008, and the Wii spin-off, Dead Space Extraction, just earned a 5/5 score and an Editor's Choice from reviews editor Tae Kim. Now comes word, that a second game will soon begin production.

Joystiq has discovered a help wanted ad from Visceral Games on Linkedin that states "The game is in the later stages of pre-production, ready for production in the next few months, with many of the navigational and combat mechanics in place." The position being filled is for "Lead Combat & Controls Designer," which may signify even more innovation in the game's insane limb-slaying combat.

The PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 were the only consoles mentioned in the job listing. We will update you with more information about the next chapter of the Dead Space saga as we learn more.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

This smart laptop was enjoyable to use and great to work on – creating content was super simple.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries


As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

Taylor Carr


The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
