Dante's Inferno Sequel Rising Out of Visceral Games?

Twitter-based detective Superannuation has been at it again, this time digging up some info on a possible Dante's Inferno sequel, based upon the blog of writer Joshua Rubin, which credits him as “sole writer for a Major Unannounced Sequel”. He's also said to be helping Visceral Games in “creating a major new unannounced IP for a AAA game company.”
While this is clearly open to a variety of interpretations, the blog also features a link to the Superbowl commercial for the first Dante's Inferno, which suggests the "unannounced sequel" could be Dante's Inferno 2. But then again, it could be Visceral's Dead Space 3 too.
This is the second rumour that's pointed to Dante's Inferno 2 though, with a job description looking for an Environment Artist back in May. However, Dante's Inferno Producer Jonathan Knight told The Escapist: “I’ve read the entire Divine Comedy and I’ve given it some thought, but there are no plans”, with regard to a sequel shortly after the first game released.
So, will they or won't they be making a Dante's Inferno 2? For now, it's just a rumour, but then again, stranger things have happened.
