Visceral Games, creators of Dead Space and its sequel, will be closing down its Australia based offices come Monday, September 19th. However, this fate may be avoided, stated the International Game Developer’s Association, Melbourne Chapter.

“I’m hearing Visceral are meeting on Monday with HR whether it’s closure then or some redundancies first remains to be seen

This would not mark the end of Visceral Games as a whole as the development studio is also based out in California and Canada.

It may, however, damage the chances of seeing a new Dead Space sequel in the near future.
