Dead Space Series is Purportedly Killed by EA [Updated]

Dead Space Purportedly Killed

[UPDATE] EA has officially commented that the rumors around Dead Space being cancelled are false. They have stated that the VideoGamer report is “patently false” and that in regards to Dead Space 3, “…we are proud of the game and it continues to be an important IP to EA.” The rebuttal has run on numerous sites, including GameSpot.

Original Story:

The Dead Space series, which at one point was one of the most popular in the gaming industry, has been purportedly axed according to a report at VideoGamer.com. The decision was purportedly made by Electronic Arts (EA) due to less-than-ideal sales figures for Dead Space 3 that apparently served as a nail in the coffin for the horror-action franchise that appears on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC. From the reports, the Dead Space 4 project dies with this decision, with the game allegedly in pre-production stages at Visceral Games. Regretfully, Visceral Montreal is reportedly going to shut its doors for good in a restructuring move by EA.

If you haven’t checked them out yet, Gaming Illustrated recently ran stories about The Art of Dead Space, as well as a review of Dead Space 3 as played on Xbox 360, which received a score of 80%, below what previous versions had scored on most video game review websites.

[adsense336itp]During the development of Dead Space 3, which now might serve as the final installment of the franchise, many reports surfaced stating that the studio came across many roadblocks during development. The game was apparently the subject of a few rounds of budget cuts during the middle of production and at one point, was almost cancelled altogether. Gamers didn’t react well to the unnecessary amount of microtransaction requests made by the game, which EA has stated will become a regular “feature” in all their games moving forward. According to the report, the development studio for Dead Space 3 was also told to tone down the horror elements of the game and follow more of a Mass Effect model of gameplay.

This isn’t the first major franchise that EA has put to bed after sluggish sales. Earlier in 2013, EA dishonored the Medal of Honor franchise after a poor showing. EA’s leadership has said in the past that top-tier AAA titles must sell upwards of 5 million copies if they want to continue on for sequels in the future.

For Dead Space franchise fans, this news comes as a low blow in the wake of a slightly disappointing third installment of the franchise. Fortunately, there is a swan song in the making, as Dead Space 3 will get a single-player downloadable content (DLC) patch, dubbed “Awakening” in March of 2013.

EA has issued no official comment to any outlet about this story at the time of this article’s publication. Stay tuned to Gaming Illustrated for more news and any official comment from EA about the Dead Space series as it breaks.
