Dead Space 2 PC Not Out of the Picture; Still Hope

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.

    Where do you come up with these "news sites"? I've had enough of these back and forth rumors. One second is canceled, one second you come back with some obscure website that talked to the sketchy guy named "U.S. Rep" that says its under consideration.

    What I'm sick in tired of is all the retards complaining about every little thing that is wrong with a post made by toms. If you have that much to complain about, stop reading the articles and work on gaining a life.

    bak0nIf you have that much to complain about, stop reading the articles and work on gaining a life.Oh, sweet irony...

    Also - what is "a life" exactly ? Last time I heard, "people more skilled than you have no life, while those less skilled are n00bs" and this appears to fit almost ANYTHING.

    it looks like a trend... EA looks to be getting in the habit of boning PC gamers, id like to see there talent just leave and start a new studio just so that they can make games interesting again.

They don't want to be searched on Google and emailed with constant requests and criticisms.
