The Dead Space series is not dead, EA Games Label boss Patrick Söderlund confirmed to Eurogamer. That being said, Dead Space 4 is not in development as of now. The team responsible for the series are apparently ”working on something else very exciting.”
“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? I am of the utmost opinion that we have to put the best possible games in the hands of our fans,” Söderlund said.
“How you get to a great game, the first thing you need is a great development team that have a passion for building what they’re building. That’s a simple parameter. Everything else follows. Money, time, everything else follows. It’s less relevant. That’s ultimately how you get success. It’s as simple as that.”
“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,” he continued.
