While details are still scarce -- something we're working towards fixing -- EA announced Dead Space 2 earlier today. The true follow-up to our 2008 Xbox 360 Game of the Year, Dead Space 2 will be seeing release on the PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360 next year. Among the scant information released by EA is that Isaac Clarke will once again serve as the game's protagonist, and that there will be more weapons to dismember the many necromorphs.

Much like last week's Medal of Honor, EA has not released any screen shots or trailers for the game, but the game's official Twitter feed debuted with a link to a screen, which has since been decoded by followers to read "THE NIGHTMARE IS OVER BUT IT WILL NOT END!."

So there you have it. Isaac Clarke, more weapons, continuing nightmare. The press release is below.

EA BRINGS THE TERROR TO SPACE IN Dead Space 2

Sequel to Award-Winning Horror Game Delivers Intense, Personal Saga that Sends Chills through Deep Space

Redwood City, CA - December 7, 2009 - Visceral Games, an Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: ERTS) studio announced today that the award-winning Dead Space(tm) franchise will continue to frighten gamers with its stunning sequel, Dead Space 2. Hero Isaac Clarke returns for another heart-pounding adventure, taking the fight to the Necromorphs in this thrilling action-horror experience. New tools to gruesomely slice and dismember the Necromorphs complement Isaac's signature Plasma Cutter, empowering him as he meets new characters, explores epic Zero-G environments, and fights against a relentless necromorph onslaught. Survival isn't the only thing on Isaac's mind in Dead Space 2 - this time, he calls the shots.

"Like so many gamers worldwide, we love the Dead Space franchise and are very excited to announce a new game in the series," said Nick Earl, Senior VP and Group General Manager at EA. "Visceral Games is quickly becoming known for delivering high-quality, action-packed games. Dead Space 2 is on target to deliver a jaw-dropping experience gamers won't soon forget."

"We're thrilled to jump back into the series, making the next chapter in Isaac's journey. The infection continues to spread throughout space and our hero Isaac Clarke is the only person able to contain it. There are still loads of necromorphs that need killing!" said Steve Papoutsis, Executive Producer of Dead Space 2. "In Dead Space 2, not everything is exactly as it seems. Expect plot twists that will surprise you and a huge cast of twisted, disgusting monsters that are sure to scare the daylights out of you."

Originally launched in 2008, Dead Space quickly became one of EA's top rated wholly-owned intellectual properties. With close to 100 industry awards and an average critic score of 89, Dead Space became a hit with horror and videogame fans worldwide. In 2009, EA launched Dead Space Extraction, a prequel to the original Dead Space that expanded the fiction and brought the franchise to a new audience base.

Dead Space 2 is being developed for the PlayStation(r)3 computer entertainment system, the Xbox 360(r) video game and entertainment system and on PC. This product has not yet rated by ESRB or PEGI.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
