Dead Space series not killed
Electronic Arts confirms Dead Space 4 is not in development, but says that the series will live on.
The Dead Space series is a "great brand" for Electronic Arts, but a new entry in the series not in active development, the publisher has confirmed with Eurogamer.
"I wouldn't say [the Dead Space franchise is] cancelled at all," EA Games boss Patrick Soderlund said. "Dead Space remains a brand that is close to Electronic Arts' heart. It's been a great brand for us done by a very passionate team."
Soderlund explained that Dead Space 3 developer Visceral Games is now working on an "exciting new project," which he believes is a better fit for the studio than a fourth entry in the action horror series.
"Is that team working on a Dead Space game today? No they're not," he said. "They're working on something else very exciting. You have to think of it from that perspective. Is it better to put them on the fourth version of a game they've done three previous versions of before? Or is it better to put them on something new that they want to build, that they have passion for?"
Visceral Games is one of three EA studios working on all-new Stars Wars games, joining DICE and BioWare.
