Visceral boss “not ready” for Dead Space 2 reveal
Visceral Games head Glen Schofield has told VG247 that EA is “not ready” to show any of the studio’s titles past Dante’s Inferno and Dead Space: Extraction, and has refused to be drawn on timing for a Dead Space 2 reveal.
“Our two big games are Extraction and Dante’s Inferno: we’re not ready to announce anything [else] yet, no,” Schofield said, talking in a phone interview.
“These two games are the games we’re really focussing on. One of the reasons we changed the [studio's] name [to Visceral] is to go, ‘We’re focussing on quality.’ So right now the focus is on getting these two games to the highest quality. The studio is really working on that.
“I think talking about anything other than that just takes the focus away from the games we’re working on.”
When asked specifically when we can expect to see Dead Space 2 announced, EA PR jumped in with a “no comment”.
Visceral said it was working on two unannounced games in May when it rebranded away from EA Redwood Shores.
Just after the rebranding announcement, Dead Space 2 was inadvertently announced via a developer LinkedIn profile, although the title has now been edited out of the CV.
