Dante's Inferno sequel hinted at on writer's CV

Second outing for Visceral's action title?

A sequel to EA's 2009 action title Dante's Inferno is - or was - in the works, judging by writer Joshua Rubin's online résumé.

As spotted by Twitter detective Superannuation, Rubin, who co-wrote Assassin's Creed 2 for Ubisoft, mentions work for "a Major Unannounced Sequel from Visceral Studios at EA Games."

As way of a hint, he then links to a trailer for the original Dante's Inferno.

Of course, that's not confirmation that the game is definitely happening but at the least it seems it was reasonably far along at one point in time.

When questioned about a potential sequel late last year, Visceral's Zach Mumbach insisted nothing was currently planned.

"I'm sure that if enough people are like, 'I got 60 dollars for Purgatory or Paradiso,' then we would make that game. But I don't know. I don't get to make those decisions," he said.

Visceral's original biblical button masher scored 6/10 from Eurogamer.

"You can't ignore the fact this is a God of War clone at its core, and many of the ideas here feel tired, familiar and dated," wrote Ellie Gibson in her Dante's Inferno review.
