Visceral Games Employees Go to Activision

wii-dead-space1Visceral Games is on the fast track to become a very high-caliber studio. Having developed the great Dead Space and currently working on Dante’s Inferno (as well as Dead Space Extraction, an on-rail shooter for the Wii).

On the other hand Activision keeps growing and is apparently opening a new, yet unnamed, game studio which wouldn’t be too noteworthy but two major Visceral Games employees have announced they are leaving the company to go to this studio.

These two are Monchael Condrey, former COO of the company and Glen Schofield, former General Manager of the company and who was instrumental in making Dead Space.

Obvisouly some people at Visceral should be bummed but the real interesting question is why these two decided to switch boats like this.

Dante’s Inferno New Trailer on GTTV

dantes-inferno-1For some reason my DVR didn’t record the last episode of GTTV so I had missed it until now. a real shame too because it’s feature was Dante’s Inferno, a game I wanted to get more info on and am now eagerly awaiting!

The game is being developed by Visceral Games, the guys who brought us Dead Space last year, so you can expect good things.
The game looks truly amazing and if you’re interested I suggest you check out the full GTTV episode. But just to wet you appetite I’m posting the new trailer which plain rocks!

Now go to Hell!
