In an interview with Eurogamer, EA Games Label boss Patrick Söderlund confirmed that there are currently no titles in development for the action-horror Dead Space franchise. However, he also states that the franchise isn’t dead, just that the team is working on a different project right now:
“I wouldn’t say it’s [Dead Space franchise] cancelled at all. 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?” — Patrick Söderlund
I’m sure that’s both a relief for some and a downer for others, so let’s hear it! What do you think of EA’s decision to put the Dead Space franchise on hold?
