EA has confirmed Dead Space 4 is not in development, but the franchise still exists.
During a recent interview with Eurogamer EA Games Label Boss Patrick Söderlund has denied the Dead Space series is dead, but has confirmed Dead Space 4 is not in development. Earlier this year we reported the Dead Space franchise had been cancelled, after Dead Space 3 did not reach the sales expectation of 5 million units.
“I wouldn’t say it’s [Dead Space franchise] cancelled at all,” Söderlund said. “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.”
Söderlund speculated on the future of the franchise, “Will there be another Dead Space game? Who knows? Have we killed it? No, of course not. But right now that dev team is focused on something else that you and other gamers will be very happy with.”
EA has recently confirmed Visceral Games were currently working on the Star Wars license, nothing is known about this title at this time.
