Dead Space Series Not Dead – Team Is Working on Something New

Despite being “an important IP to EA,” there is no new Dead Space game in development; instead, Visceral Games is working on something else right now. “Is that team working on a Dead Space game today? No they’re not,” EA executive vice president Patrick Soderlund told Eurogamer at E3 last week.

“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?” This isn’t the end for Dead Space, however, as S√∂derlund reiterates that it’s “a brand that is close to Electronic Arts’ heart.”

“I am of the utmost opinion that we have to put the best possible games in the hands of our fans,” S√∂derlund added. “How you get to a great game, the first thing you need is a great development team that have a passion for building what they’re building. That’s a simple parameter. Everything else follows. Money, time, everything else follows. It’s less relevant. That’s ultimately how you get success. It’s as simple as that.”

Dead Space 3, which launched earlier this year, failed to meet EA’s sales expectations at launch and has had fewer sales than Dead Space 2.
