Electronic Arts has officially lifted the curtains on survival horror sequel Dead Space 2, confirming the game is currently in development for PlayStation 3, PC and Xbox 360 platforms.

According to EA’s press blurb, the sequel marks the return of protagonist Isaac Clarke, who will apparently be “taking the fight to the Necromorphs” in a fright fest packed with new weapons, characters and “epic zero-G environments.”

Dead Space 2 executive producer Steve Papoutsis commented: “The infection continues to spread throughout space and our hero Isaac Clarke is the only person able to contain it. There are still loads of Necromorphs that need killing.”

“In Dead Space 2, not everything is exactly as it seems. Expect plot twists that will surprise you and a huge cast of twisted, disgusting monsters that are sure to scare the daylights out of you.”

The original Dead Space launched back in October 2008, and has since gone on to shift around 1.4 million copies across PS3, PC and 360. A prequel, Dead Space: Extraction, was released for Nintendo Wii a few months back.
