Horror Fans Ask: What Is The Mystery Dead Space?
We know Dead Space 2 is on the way (and we can't wait), but we hadn't counted on another - entirely separate - title in the franchise.
Superannuation has stumbled upon a URL registration for "Dead Space Sabotage," which was created by Electronic Arts on July 29. Ever since this discovery, survival/horror fans have been asking: "okay, what the hell is it for?" Well, that's a bit of a toughie... See, there's a lot of "Dead Space" out there: we've got a prequel novel called "Dead Space: Martyr," an animated feature film - "Dead Space Aftermath" - recently announced at Comic-Con 2010, and a graphic novel called "Dead Space Salvage." Oh wait, and there's Dead Space Ignition, a downloadable title announced at E3 and set to release on the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live service this fall. Considering all this, "Sabotage" could fall into most any entertainment venue; maybe it's an official orchestra for the game's soundtrack, and they just put out an album. Or maybe the series is going portable on the PSP/DS. ...or maybe we'll just have to wait for EA to spill the beans, because all this guessing will likely get us nowhere.
Well, at any rate, we do love Dead Space. The sequel is really what we care most about right now, but you never know what the future may bring.
