Electronic Arts wants us to know the Dead Space franchise isn’t dead. After confirming that series developer Visceral Games hasn’t even begun pre-production on a sequel, meaning Dead Space 4 is still a ways off, some fans took that as confirmation that EA had scrapped the franchise following the relatively poor reception of Dead Space 3.
When asked if Dead Space was a series the publisher still has interest in, EA Labels boss Frank Gibeau told CVG “Dead Space is something that we’re very proud of. We are not making any public announcements on what we’re doing with the next Dead space, but we definitely have a great set of IPs to pull out of the vault. But then again, we also have a lot of great new IP too, and you can only have a certain number of teams that can make world-class games. The worst thing you can do as a company is try too many things at once.”
To me, it sounds like they’re doing the same thing Remedy is with Alan Wake by setting Dead Space aside to focus on other projects while they try and figure out what to do with it. Maybe we’ll see more from the series when that movie deal comes closer to fruition.
