Dante's Inferno 2 outed?

Job ad outs "sequel to major new IP" at Visceral Games

EA's Visceral Games studio could be working on Dante's Inferno 2, if a new job ad that's left its walls is anything to go by.

Visceral's just-gone-live environment artist job ad reads: "This project is the sequel to a major new IP at the award-winning Visceral Games," adding that "this is a major opportunity to contribute to a bold new franchise, heavily backed by the EA Games Label."

Considering Visceral is already head-and-shoulders in the middle of Dead Space 2 production, the only other 'new IP' sequel it could possibly be working on is Dante's Inferno 2, right?

It's a peculiar development, because earlier this year Visceral went on record that it has no plans to work on a follow-up, and we're interested to know where it'd take the game next, to be honest (Heaven?)

"I've read the entire divine comedy and I've given it some thought, but there are no plans," producer Jonathan Knight told The Escapist earlier this year.

Then again, maybe fantastic Dante's Inferno reviews changed EA's mind, eh?
