That's not an official confirmation of Dead Space 4, mind you. Visceral could very well be working on a followup to their 2010 release, Dante's Inferno, (yes please) or anything else for that matter. But what would a Dead Space sequel entail? Well, the folks at GameFront have done some detective work and discovered a cryptic Easter egg that could point to where the series is headed.
The phrase "brother moons are awake" is hidden in the first character of Dead Space 3's chapter titles. What that means is anyone's best guess at this point, but GameFront conjectures it might have something to do with the source of the markers, which are known as Brethren Moons, or perhaps the location of the next game. Saturn has trio of brother moons: Atlas, Prometheus, and Epimetheus. Dead Space 2 took place, in part, on Titan, another one of Saturn's satellites, so a return to the sixth planet in the solar system wouldn't be out of the question.
