Very excited to hear about a sequel to a great video game, Dead Space 2!  Interestingly, Isaac (the main character) will be coming back.  In the first Dead Space, Isaac’s fate is decidedly vague: some people have suggested he dies, while others (myself included) were withholding judgment.

“We’re thrilled to jump back into the series, making the next chapter in Isaac’s journey,” said the game’s executive producer, Steve Papoutsis. “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!” Aside from this small amount of information, Papoutsis also explained that the game’s story will be even more labyrinthine than that of the original title. “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 announcement makes it clear: Isaac survived to fight another day.  Should be interesting.
