Dead Space 2 getting multiplayer?

Fans of Visceral Games’ Dead Space don’t really need surprising news in order to get excited about the sequel in development, but here goes anyway. Piling on is great; An EA job listing on LinkedIn makes it clear that they want someone working on Dead Space 2 who can “create extremely fun, satisfying and polished multiplayer levels.”

The speculation can now begin regarding how Dead Space multiplayer will actually function, though we’re sure if EA gets their man (or woman!) they’ll conceive of something amazing, not to mention fun and satisfying. Or actually, we won’t be too sure just in case. Creating a multiplayer counterpart to a previously single-player only adventure doesn’t always work out (Metroid Prime 2 is an good example), but if the new feature doesn’t take away from the main attraction, why not give it a shot?
