Dead Space 2 PC 'Under Consideration,' Might Yet Happen

The fate of Dead Space 2 on PC apparently still hangs in the balance, according to editor in chief Jeff Green on Twitter, as plans for a PC version are not outright scrapped--as had been as had been thought--but are only "under consideration."

Dead Space 2's announcement last December stated that the horror shooter sequel would be hitting PC in addition to Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 but a PC edition was not listed in EA's fiscal year 2011 lineup on Monday and an EA spokesperson had reportedly said "As of right now a PC sku is not in the plan."

Even Green seems a little confused by the kerfuffle, having posted only hours prior, "Rumor fact check: There will be a PC version of Dead Space 2. Worry not!" While a PC release might still never happen, at least there's now a glimmer of hope.

    Good, I enjoyed the first Dead Space on PC, and I hope to do the same with the second.

      Yeah me too. Wasn't the best or most original game but it was worth the price of entry and I'd be happy to play another one.

      I bought DS1 for PC, and I'll buy DS2 for PC. Hope EA is listening!

      Had little problem with it. I enjoyed the game quite a bit, and it only took a little tweaking of the mouse to it working well. The game was never intended to be a twitch shooter and the controls reflected the "bulky" feel of the main character. He wasnt a ninja or a special forces super soldier. He was a mechanic in a fancy work suit.
