EA Hasn't Abandoned Dead Space
Will Dead Space ever return? Electronic Arts would like to think so.
During a recent Polygon interview with EA Studios executive vice president Patrick Soderlund, we learn that another entry could come down the pike, but only if they can find a way to retain the core of the franchise:
"Do I think that we will create a Dead Space game again? Yes, I think so. But when we do so, we have to think about what made the previous ones successful and how we go about envisioning Dead Space for a new generation."
If you didn't already know, developer Visceral Games is working on Battlefield: Hardline and a currently unannounced Star Wars game. Soderlund says the team is "incredibly enthusiastic" about those projects now, but added that Dead Space is a "great brand" they don't want to leave behind. As you can see through the link, EA refuses to say Battlefield is an annual franchise; just for the record.
I'm sure true horror aficionados know exactly how to bring Dead Space back...reboot the franchise with a game that's more like the original title, as opposed to the third-person shooter that was Dead Space 3.
