Ship dates have been locked in for two of EA’s 2010 heavy hitters: Battlefield: Bad Company 2 and Dante’s Inferno.

Coming up first will be Visceral Games’ God of War-esque action adventure game Dante’s Inferno. It will be out for PS3, PSP and Xbox 360 on February 9th in North America and February 12th in Europe. A six-issue tie-in comic book series from DC Comics / Wildstorm will start rolling out on December 9th, and an animated feature co-produced by EA and Starz Media will be released alongside the game’s launch.

“The Divine Comedy is one of the most influential pieces of literature in the world and we have a great responsibility in re-imagining Dante Alighieri’s vivid descriptions of hell, and the themes of righteousness and redemption he explores,” said Jonathan Knight, executive producer of Dante’s Inferno. “Our team is dedicated to delivering a stunning and highly polished interpretation of this classic to a new medium for a new generation everywhere this February.”

EA DICE’s Battlefield: Bad Company 2 will follow Dante’s Inferno out the door a little less than a month later, with the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 FPS sequel due for release in North America on March 2nd and in Europe on March 5th.

“The variety of weapons, choice of vehicles and scale of destruction in the Battlefield: Bad Company 2 sandbox environment generates countless unscripted and unforgettable moments,” said Karl Magnus Troedsson, Executive Producer Battlefield Franchise, DICE. “When Battlefield: Bad Company 2 ships in March, it will deliver the best online multiplayer experience ever.”
