The lights are on
During its investor call this afternoon, EA said the Dead Space franchise will see a new release during the publisher's 2013 fiscal year.
"At the foundation is another year of blockbuster brands: Madden NFL, FIFA, Sim City, Medal of Honor, Dead Space, and Need for Speed as well as mobile hits like The Simpsons Tapped Out, and Bejeweled," EA said.
It's unclear if this is Dead Space 3 or a different game in the series. In a follow up e-mail, a spokesperson told Game Informer, "There’s no further information today but watch for several big product announcements from EA at E3 in June."
EA is rumored to be developing Dead Space 3 from Visceral Games. A report from last year suggests the game will take place on an ice planet and not a space ship.
EA's 2013 fiscal year ends March 31, 2013.
I love Dead Space, both games left me surprised by the ending. Can't wait for Dead Space 3!
This is wonderful news. Dead Space has been one of my favorite new franchises that has appeared within the last few years. I would gladly welcome another iteration.
I plan to finally play the second one this summer so a sequel is welcome.
Bring it on!
Visceral had a fantastic marketing campaign for the last Dead Space so I'm excited to see what they come up with for the new game!
DEAD SPACE 3 FTW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So. If they decided to release this in 2012 around November or something. Dead space 3, AC3, GTA5 possibly Nov 27th, Farcry 3, Madden 13, Borderlands 2. How the hell am i gonna get all these on 2 months time? 360 + dollars all together.
I can't wait to crap my pants while playing another Dead Space in a well-lit room. #iamapansy
I have always been a major fan of Dead Space, so I am very happy to hear they are making another Dead Space game!!!!!
Ice planet please!
If it is truly Dead Space 3, and not a prequel or whatever, than HELLS YEAH!!!
More Dead Space at E3? Heck yes! :)
I am most pleased to know this.
I'm guessing Q1 again(providing the world doesn't end :P) since this Fall EA will probably be focused on EA shooter vs Call of Duty again.
Probably around January next year is my bet.
Considering how Dead Space 2 came out 3 years after the first, I think it's a little early for a Dead Space 3. I think it'll be a spin off like Extraction.
As long as it is scary I will pre order and buy!!!!
Loved DEAD space 1 and 2 cant wait for the third installment... ^_^
