EA has denied that they are working on a new Dead Space game at the moment but hasn’t ruled out the possibility of doing one in the future. EA Labels president Frank Gibeau said that he was “very pleased with the quality and the direction it’s going.”
There have been three games released so far in the series and all of them have been great quality-wise, however, EA had a target of 5 million sales for Dead Space 3 which it seems like the game didn’t hit.
“Yeah, that’s an intellectual property that we’ve proven that there’s an audience for. It grew from each version to the next. It launched at the very tail end of the gen 3 cycle, and if you look at games across the whole industry, whether it was Tomb Raider or BioShock Infinite or Dead Space, there were a lot of critically acclaimed games at the time. But the overall market was fairly fatigued at that point in terms of sales.”
“While we’re very pleased with the quality and the direction it’s going, we have no announcements right now for further Dead Space. But it’s an IP we love and the Visceral guys have done a great job with it. There’s no reason to believe we wouldn’t visit it again.”
A next-gen Dead Space game would be something that many people would be interested in and EA may think of reviving the series again based on Gibeau’s comments.
