Dante’s Inferno 2 and 3 possible. Plenty of story left to be told

12 June 2009

As you may or may not know, Dante’s Divine Comedy is considered to be one of the greatest literary works ever created. It was written by the Italian poet Dante Alighieri in the Middle Ages between 1308 and his death in 1321. It is divided into three parts: the Inferno (Hell), Purgatory, and Paradise (Heaven).

This means there’s plenty of story left to be told after the Dante’s Inferno videogame has come out. Dante’s Inferno 2 could be called Dante’s Purgatory and Dante’s Inferno 3 be Dante’s Paradise. But that’s nor here nor there. What’s interesting is developer Visceral Games saying as much!

  • Visceral Games’ Glen Schofield has said in an interview that he’s perfectly aware of the Divine Comedy being written as a trilogy, saying “so there’s at least room for two more [games] after that. And that could take you quite a long time.”

    But with the first Dante’s Inferno (Xbox 360, PS3, PSP) game not out until 2010, sequels will be quite a while off according to Mr. Schofield. To quote him: “We’re not going to make any other games unless this one comes out fantastic, and that’s the same thing with any game that we’re working on. We focus, focus, focus on this one, knowing that there are opportunities to make others, but nobody’s thinking about them right now.”

    Doesn’t talking about sequels imply he’s also thinking about them? Not to mention that EA has announced both a game and animated movie of Dante’s Inferno, so they must’ve opted the rights for the entire literary works.

    Watch the developers talk about the first game in this “Nine Circles of Hell” documentary.

    • noobie

      it’s a very good game.. gameplay has similarities w/ God of War but who cares! all games has similarities! what i like is the story! the story is very good and the ending is quite a cliff hanger… a sequel to Dante’s Inferno will hit bigtime!!

    • Fox_rider_811

      i just dont know how they would make action games about purgatory and paradise

    • Fox_rider_811

    • Poopop

    • Jmak1528gmail.com

      Just finish the game. At the end it says to be continued.. Soo apparently there has to be a dantes inferno 2. The 1st one is amazing im looking foward for 2.

      better than God of War! 😀

    • Well of course there will be AT LEAST one more. It is based off of Dante Alighieri’s Divine Comedy, which has three parts; Inferno, Purgatorio, and Paradisio.
      Of course it is nothing like the actual story, because all these poems are, are simply Dante walking throughout these places. Inferno being the first.

      Although as one of my friends pointed out yesterday Paradisio would probably not make such a great game, because the story itself was rather dull, but meant to be relevant.

      So honestly is EA wants to make it authentic and well loosely close to the story they will utilize Purgatorio and Paradisio.

      Because Inferno has it right to where Dante wanders through the Circles of Hell, HOWEVER! It was non-so Dramatic, and not so gory and violent as the game.
