The Oceanic Research Facility was an underwater science outpost owned by DredgerCorp near Puerto Chicxulub.

Overview Edit

Not much is known about the facility's founding, but it is known that in 2214 the Marker signals were detected by scientists in this facility and later the Black Marker was discovered by a research team led by Michael Altman. The artifact was seized and studied. However, unbeknownst to them, the signal it was producing started to create hallucinations. The only one ''immune'' to them was Altman. Sometime later, a crazed scientist injected himself with mutated Necro-tissue, and mutated into a Necromorph. Another scientist, Grote Guthe, was re-animated as an Infector, and soon started to infect the rest of the facility personnel, leaving only Altman and his group of survivors alive. Ultimately, they are all killed, except Altman. But when he was about to escape he decided to save his girlfriend Ada Chavez and destroy the Marker once and for all. He succeeded, blowing up the artifact and the facility with it.

However, in Dead Space 3, logs hint that the Black Marker had not been destroyed after all, but had rather been recovered by the Sovereign Colonies.
