Dead Space 2 Will Go Into Production In The Coming Months.

It's not quite official. But we've no reason to not believe it. Joystiq have discovered via a Linked.In job listing that, "The previous installment in the Dead Space franchise received numerous awards ... and the same core team is in place to create an even better follow up." According to the job listing, Dead Space 2 is "in the later stages of pre-production, ready for production in the next few months, with many of the navigational and combat mechanics in place."

Hooray for Dead Space 2. We've been waiting for official word on this game for a while now, and while EA's focus has been on the Wii spin-off Extraction and upcoming Dante's Inferno, we hope to see a glimpse of Dead Space 2 soon.
