Visceral Games made an entertaining action game called Dante's Inferno , a title that has garnered a good-sized following of staunch supporters.
Well, those supporters should be encouraged by the latest find by Superogatory : it seems a sequel might be in the works.
The official bio for writer Joshua Rubin, who also worked on Assassin's Creed II , says he was also "the sole writer for a Major Unannounced Sequel from Visceral Studios at EA Games." Now, Visceral also does Dead Space , but the third entry has already been confirmed. Besides, why would Rubin add a "hint" and link his bio to the Super Bowl trailer for the original Dante's Inferno ? …yeah, that's pretty clear.
Therefore, we all have to assume that Visceral is cranking away on a sequel. We have no official word yet but bear in mind that the game sold well, despite a less-than-desirable critical reception.
