An easter egg in the Dead Space remake would seem to suggest a makeover for the second game in the series as well.
As reported by GameSpot, there is an interesting easter egg inside the Dead Space remake that could also confirm the arrival of a remake of the second chapter of Isaac Clark’s (dis)adventures.
The clue in question only appears once the credits roll and the game is restarted via the New Game Plus . Once done, players should notice a number of new text documents that weren’t there in the first game.
One of these is an email exchange between two characters talking about new job opportunities, after the “decommissioning” of USG Ishimura which should take place in the following year. Interestingly, there is mention of potential employment at the Sprawl on Titan in the conversation. Those familiar with the series know that the events of Dead Space 2 take place on the space station known as “Station Titan” or “Sprawl” built on a fragment of Titan.
This sort of easter egg is therefore teasing the imagination of the players, who see it as a possible confirmation of the fact that sooner or later a remake of the second game will be done. Clearly we are far from a confirmation and in fact EA Motive has never officially spoken of a remake of Dead Space 2. So for the moment take it for what it is, or a tribute to the second chapter.
In any case, who knows, maybe the project is actually being examined within the offices of Electronic Arts, waiting to have certain data on the sales trend of the Dead Space remake. Of its own the game has obtained very positive evaluations from the critics.
