It’s been well over a year since the last Dante’s Inferno 2 rumor. Back in May of 2010, Visceral was hiring for a project called “the sequel to a major new IP,” which, at the time, Dante’s Inferno very much was. Now, the bio of writer Joshua Rubin makes little effort to hide the development of a second game (via): “Recently, Joshua was the sole writer for a Major Unannounced Sequel from Visceral Studios at EA Games,” reads the site, with a following “hint” linking to Dante’s Inferno‘s Super Bowl commercial on Youtube. Looks like a no-brainer then.
Visceral itself has in the past said that creating a follow-up would be a problem worth having. More on that here.
