Labels president Frank Gibeau says franchise is "something that we're very proud of."

Just because Dead Space 3 failed to meet commercial expectations for Electronic Arts, that doesn't mean the franchise is going away for good.

"No, it's not out of rotation," EA Labels president Frank Gibeau told CVG when asked about the future of the action horror series.

"I mean, I'm not announcing anything right now, but I will say we had a great trilogy of games and we still have faith in that franchise," he added.

Gibeau said the Dead Space series is "something that we're really proud of," but declined to give specifics about the future of the brand.

What could spell trouble for the Dead Space franchise going forward are issues of resource, Gibeau said, noting the publisher only has "a certain number of teams" at its disposal.

"The worst thing you can do as a company is try too many things at once," he said.

Dead Space 3 sold 605,000 copies in the United States during its February launch month, according to data from the NPD Group.

A new Dead Space game is not currently in development at Visceral Games. That studio is currently working on an all-new Star Wars game.

"EA still has faith in Dead Space"

But customers don't have faith in EA any more

I have faith in EA.  They've released a lot of amazing games this gen.  I'm not one of those people who hate on the company for some blind sense of justice.

However, I've only played Dead Space 2 and 3 and I'm already Dead Spaced out.  I liked the third game, it's just the same as the same game with a bit more shooting.  I don't think whatever they release next in the series can really impress me.

So it's not out of rotation, but they think working on it is a waste of resources and they don't have any specific plans for the franchise right now. This after DS3 didn't come anywhere near meeting their idiotic sales expectations.

Whatever you say, EA.

Have some time to kill? Read my shitty games blog.


I enjoyed all 3 games alot, so i am hoping they don't get rid of it. I do think they should ditch online with it and just go back to a pure single player only experience. Maybe a co-op story mode at most.

I hope they still have Dante's Purgatory for Visceral in rotation too.

Dante's Inferno was better than the game it ripped off.  Too bad it didn't sell well.

I haven't played dead space 3,just the first 2. I mean there good games,but what else could you do with it? I mean how can you make the gameplay feel fresh and new?

I thought EA has Faith in Mirrors Edge.

Ongoing bet with think-man: He wins if MH4 releases in any shape or form on PSV in 2013, I win if it doesn't.

“It appeared that there had even been demonstrations to thank Big Brother for raising the chocolate ration to twenty grams a week. And only yesterday, he reflected, it had been announced that the ration was to be reduced to twenty grams a week. Was it possible that they could swallow that, after only twenty-four hours? Yes, they swallowed it.”
