Dead Space


 

EA Games Label boss Patrick Söderlund has confirmed that that the Dead Space franchise hasn’t been cancelled, despite previous rumors, however no one is currently working on Dead Space 4.

“I wouldn’t say it’s cancelled at all,” Söderlund told Eurogamer. “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.

“Is that team working on a Dead Space game today? No they’re not. 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?

“I am of the utmost opinion that we have to put the best possible games in the hands of our fans. 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.”

Visceral is currently working on an unannounced Star Wars game for EA, according to the license acquisition press release.
