EA Still Has Faith in the Dead Space Series

Although Dead Space 3 failed to hit sales targets, EA still has “faith” in the future of the series.
That’s according to EA Labels boss Frank Gibeau, who told CVG that, "No it's not out of rotation. 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.
"Dead Space is something that we're very proud of," added Gibeau. "We are not making any public announcements on what we're doing with the next Dead Space, but we definitely have a great set of IPs to pull out of the vault."
One of the main problems facing a potential return of the series, according to Gibeau, is that the company only has a limited number of teams that it can spread across EA’s properties.
The sales target for Dead Space 3 was five million units and although no numbers have been officially released, EA has previously revealed in an investor’s call that the game failed to hit those heights.
