EA’s Dead Space 3 was released a few weeks ago complete with a new co-op mode. Sadly, it is said that EA is killing the franchise today, if we can believe a source familiar with Dead Space 4 speaking to VideoGamer.com.
According to that source, the development for the game was stopped by EA due to poor sales of Dead Space 3. The game was already in pre-production at Visceral Games and Visceral Montreal, but the latter was reportedly closed due to a company restructuring.
Take this with a grain of salt for now. We haven’t heard anything official from EA announcing either the death of the Dead Space series or the shuttering of Visceral Montreal. Dead Space 3 does tease a sequel in its post-game credits sequence, so hopefully a 4th title is still on.
