Could Dante's Inferno 2 Already Be In The Works?

Over on GamaSutra, there's a job listing for an Environment Artist to work on "an existing action/adventure franchise" at Visceral Games. With Dead Space 2 already out there, it seems that Dante's Inferno 2 is a no-brainer here. These are currently the only two established IPs owned by Visceral.
The job description begins thus: "Visceral Games is looking for an experienced Environment Artist for an existing action/adventure franchise. This is a major opportunity to contribute to a bold new franchise, heavily backed by the EA Games Label."
If it is indeed Dante's Inferno 2, which is a strong possibility, then it would be the second chapter in Dante Alighieri's Divine Comedy trilogy, entitled Purgatorio.
Purgatorio charts Dante's journey through Purgatory after surviving the terrors of Hell, before the final Paradiso chapter where Dante and his guide, Virgil make it to Paradise.
"The game sequel will set new quality standards and make the franchise the world-leader in the action/melee-combat genre," states the end of the job description. Sounds like a hack and slash title to us. Dante's Purgatorio it is then.
