GI: Dead Space 2 Includes a Dead Space 3 Tease
Game Informer’s review is already out for Dead Space 2 (lucky bastards), and it mentions the inclusion of a Dead Space 3 teaser worked into the game.
The review’s Metacritic thumbnail includes the quote, “Tease for Dead Space 3 has my head spinning with questions,” suggesting that there might, in fact, be a Dead Space 3 — we heard DS3 was being developed alongside way back in the early stages of DS2′s development — even though EA has denied a rumor saying there will definitely be one.
It could just be that the review writer was referring to the inevitable cliffhanger ending that closes off Dead Space 2. Part of the horror convention is to end the story with a climax (remember the necromorph that jumped Isaac at the end of Dead Space?), so the “tease” could be nothing.
Or it could be further proof that we’re getting a third Dead Space, and if Dead Space 2 is as good as Game Informer says (they gave it a 90/100), that’s just fine with me.
