EA: Dead Space Rumor "Patently False"

GameSpot has a very brief response from EA to earlier reports that it was walking away from the Dead Space series based on disappointing sales of Dead Space 3. They initially declined to comment, but now say the report is "patently false," adding: "While we have not released sales data for Dead Space 3, we are proud of the game and it continues to be an important IP to EA."

They've got DLC packs for Dead Space 3 to sell, then they'll announce that it's on hiatus along with medal of honor.


This. Though of course it's an important IP for EA, because it allows their marketing clowns to spend a million dollars on a fucking statue.

Yeah that was ridiculously wasteful and wasn't worth the meager PR it garnered. Oh well, they can keep their homogenized game, I don't really care for the dudebro transition as the Dead Space "universe" isn't heavy enough to carry run of the mill gameplay I can get anywhere else.

Loved Dead Space 1 though, it had its warts but was overall pretty good. Dead Space 2 was still pretty neat too. Oh well, EA will probably kill it off.

Not to mention they already did dudebro it up pretty well but he's obviously whiteknighting something hes never even touched himself Number1

I've played through the SP. It's actually a solid game. But hey continue to hate for the sake of EA's name being on the box that's your right.

Maybe they should make the next Dead Space exactly like Call of Duty to give you guys a real reason to bitch for a change.

I don't care about whether it lost its survival horror "roots" or not. Dead Space 3 was extremely immersive for me. Not many games can give me this nowadays.

Even if the series was cancelled they would probably still make comics or those cartoon movies to continue the story since there is a lot more to tell.

It's really important to EA, they just won't make any more of them for 10 years. Maybe some iPhone games if you're lucky kids.
