Visceral Games Are Focusing On Dante's Inferno Before Bringing Up Dead Space.

“These two games are the games we’re really focusing on. One of the reasons we changed the [studio's] name [to Visceral] is to go, ‘We’re focusing 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.”</blockquote>

We're sure Dead Space 2 will be mentioned weeks after the release of Dante's Inferno. It's a strategy they used with announcing Dante's Inferno - word came weeks after the release of the original Dead Space.
