Speaking with PC Gamer, Dead Space designers Ben Wanat and Wright Bagwell revealed that originally they were planning if they could make a sequel to System Shock 2.

Originally, we were pushing around this idea of maybe we could make System Shock 3. And you can look at the Dead Space blueprint and be like, ‘Oh, this is kind of like System Shock.

Wanat added that the problem with the idea of System Chock sequel was the expectations of the gaming community with a System Shock game.

To do a System Shock 3, you’re really tackling a monumental task, to make people happy with a sequel that wasn’t made by the same team as the original.

He further added that when Resident Evil 4 released the team was just amazed by it as it took the franchise into the action game realm while maintaining its horror feel.

When Resident Evil 4 came out, we were just awestruck by it. We were all playing it and we were like, ‘Holy shit, this is a really awesome game. They’re actually trying to tell a story; they’ve got some cool cinematics; the gameplay systems are fixing a lot of problems, bringing it into this action realm but keeping this intense horror feel to it. It was this amazing combination and–of, the enemies were so freakin’ cool.

He went on to admit that what came out as Dead Space was an attempt from the developers to make Resident Evil 4 in space.
