EA really hit gold when they first started the Dead Space franchise. And the franchise is clearly still going strong with a third Dead Space title on the way. Whether or not the third installment is indeed Dead Space 3 or a branch-off title from the series is still unclear. But the evidence supporting a future part is strong indeed.
EA and Visceral Games reportedly posted multiple jobs on Gamasutra, to work on the “Dead Space Franchise”. Since job openings are just becoming present, don’t expect the future Dead Space title to hit stores during this year’s Holidays. A more realistic time may be Q3 2012.
Hopefully this future part delivers a good perk on Hard-Core mode as did Dead Space 2.
