New entries to both the Dead Space and Need for Speed series are expected before the end of the financial year, EA has confirmed.
The news comes via the publisher’s earnings call, in which EA detailed their upcoming releases. No details were announced. Based on previous news, however, we can speculate a little as to what the games will be and what will contain.
Dead Space 3 is rumoured to be set on an ice planet called Tau Volantis, where Isaac will encounter an enemy known as the 'hive mind.’ It has also been suggested that the protagonist will be accompanied by a separate on-screen character representing Isaac’s disintegrating mental state. Called 'Shadow Isaac' the character will mock Isaac’s every move.
Separate rumours suggest that EA are looking into making Dead Space 3 an FPS.
Meanwhile, at least one retailer began taking pre-orders on an unannounced Need for Speed title last month. If the store is to be believed, the upcoming entry to the series will be Need for Speed: Most Wanted 2.
