"Can a demo be released as a Christmas gift for us all?" posed a Q&A for Steve Papoutsis, to which he gives this hint heavy reply .
"A lot of people are asking that question. Gonna have to do some thinking about that," he said, "but I would say stay on your toes, stick on the Facebook page and you never know." That's all the hints the EA executive would part with.
Dead Space 2 releases on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC January 28th. The sequel takes place on the space station Sprawl and it's become infested with Necromorphs.
