Electronic Arts' Visceral Games has officially announced Dead Space 2, a sequel to the 2008 action-horror title set in space.

It will again star hero Isaac Clarke up against the Necromorphs in space, and promises new tools in the game's signature dismemberment gameplay. It's planned for release on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC, although EA didn't specify a release window for the title.

"Like so many gamers worldwide, we love the Dead Space franchise and are very excited to announce a new game in the series,” says EA senior VP and group general manager Nick Earl.

It's been widely-known EA aimed to make a franchise out of the original game, grooming Dead Space as one of its core intellectual properties. A Wii-only prequel, Dead Space Extraction, launched late in September of this year.

Dead Space 2 executive producer Steve Papoutsis adds: "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."

Formerly EA Redwood Shores, developer Visceral Games rebranded earlier this year in a move intended to its specific focus. Its other known project, Dante's Inferno, also focuses on over-the-top action and horror elements.

One major change has taken place since Dead Space, however -- the former leads of Visceral Games, GM Glen Schofield and COO Michael Condrey, have left the company to head rival publisher Activision's Sledgehammer Games.
