Concept art has surfaced over on Siliconera and it features images created by former Visceral Games artist “Joebot” of a game called The Ripper.

Basically, it was a game which starred Jack the Ripper as a vampire hunter. It was in development after the firm finished work on Dead Space and was circulating the rumor mill during 2008-2009.
