Yesterday we reported the seemingly depressing news that EA had no intent to publish the PC version of Dead Space 2 based on the company's Fiscal Q4 2011 schedule. In fact, a public relations spokesperson for EA told Blues News that there were no plans for a PC SKU "as of right now." Although the first installment saw a PC release with meatier graphics, it appeared on Tuesday that the sequel had no home on the PC.
VG247 reported on Wednesday that EA confirmed the PC version was actually under consideration, providing a small sliver of hope for Dead Space fans.
"Visceral Studios is dedicated to delivering an outstanding Dead Space sequel for the Xbox 360 and PS3,” the EA spokesperson said. “A PC SKU is under consideration. Nothing additional at this time."
With that said, the PC version could possibly ship sometime after the launch of the console versions. The original Dead Space title hit retail shelves on October 14, 2008 for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. The Microsoft Windows version wasn't available until six days later. Unfortunately, given the current status, we may not see the game on the PC until Q3 calendar 2012.
That's a guess, of course.
