This is the third chapter of the action/adventure horror game by EA.
NOTE: This game has been confirmed as a planned project but has yet to be announced for any specific platform.
Speaking to IGN in an interview last week, EA Games President Frank Gibeau said that while he's pleased with the success Dead Space 2 has seen commercially in early 2011, he still believes there's more room for growth with the series. Gibeau applauded Capcom's efforts of taking Resident Evil to the mass-market and hopes Dead Space can follow suit.
"The Resident Evil series was awesome, the early versions were phenomenal. [Capcom] did a good job of growing the franchise to a very large market," Gibeau said. "I think we still have some areas to grow with Dead Space in terms of trying to reach a broader audience without losing the quality and that survival-horror mechanic. That's how we're going to think about it as we think about Dead Space 3 and what we do next with the IP."
EA hopes lightning strikes twice this year as it prepares to launch its second action title in June, Shadows of the Damned. Famed Grasshopper Manufacture producer Suda 51 teamed up with Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami for the project, which takes a grindhouse-style spin on the genre.
"Overall, we want to try and grow the business in the action category," Gibeau later explained. "EA doesn't really have a very strong stake there; survival-horror kind of lives in that genre. 3rd-person action is something that we think we can build and our Visceral Games team is really working hard at crafting some new IPs as well as building out ones that have succeeded."
Gibeau said the publisher is thinking long-term for the survival-horror brand. "Horror movies are great films; it's a genre that's been around for decades. We think the same holds true for interactive," he added.
