Jack the Ripper game in the works at Visceral, says LA Times


According to a report from the LA Times, Electronic Arts’ Visceral team is hard at work on oa Jack the Ripper game. They’re the same developers responsible for Dead Space and Dante’s Inferno.

LA Times cites “two sources close to EA” that have told them Visceral’s next game is indeed Jack the Ripper, based on the 19th century British serial killer.

Dead Space 2 is also in the works, and while the LA Times haven’t heard anything about a release date for Jack, I wouldn’t expect it until at least 2011.
