EA Looking to Transform Dead Space into Something... Different
Written Wednesday, November 30, 2011 By Lee BradleyView author's profile
EA are planning substantial changes to the Dead Space series, with an FPS, a flight-based spin-off and an “Uncharted-like game” all being discussed.
Indeed, so dramatic are the publisher’s intentions that they nearly killed off the next instalment of the series, Dead Space 3.
According to Kotaku, new management at EA have instructed the Dead Space team to consider new ways of expanding the series, with the game in its current form failing to inspire consumers to the degree that they had hoped.
While Dead Space 2 shifted more than two million copies, an improvement on Dead Space 1, EA are still looking for further growth.
As it stands, Dead Space 3 is still in production. Adopting the series’ trademark over-the-shoulder third-person viewpoint, it is said that the game will be set on a bright white icy planet and will complete the story arc of protagonist Isaac Clarke.
But beyond that, expect some big changes. Whether or not they are for the best, however, is yet to be revealed.
