Rumours of its demise may have been greatly exaggerated.
Earlier today an anonymous source reported that EA had perma-canceled the popular Dead Space franchise and pulled the plug on an unannounced Dead Space 4 title, all because of the poor reception and sales of Dead Space 3. ALl day fans have been highly dismayed at this news, but there’s a silver lining.
EA have turned around today to refute those rumours, claiming that the anonymous source was lying. Dino Ignacio from Visceral Studios called the rumour out as false on Twitter, whilst another dev posted on NeoGAF, once again calling out the rumour.
EA have announced that they still have strong support for Dead Space as an IP.
While we have not announced sales data for Dead Space 3, we are proud of the game and it remains an important IP for EA.
Personally I feel Dead Space as a franchise has a lot of potential and EA shouldn’t end it just yet. What’s your opinion?
