Yesterday, we reported on a rumor that said the next Dead Space project had been canceled due to disappointing sales of the recently released Dead Space 3 .
However, EA has quickly cleared things up. PR Manager Jino Talens contacted us with the information that the rumors in question "are patently false." And while they haven't released sales data for DS3, they remain "proud of the game and it continues to be an important IP to EA."
This further proves that everyone should take headlines based on "anonymous sources" with a grain of salt. Furthermore, there's no doubt that Dead Space is still popular, despite some clear fan feedback. Considering the franchise still has a solid foundation of quality, we don't see any reason Visceral and EA shouldn't stick with these games. Besides, wouldn't everyone want to see what Dead Space will look like in the next generation…? I'm all for Dead Space 4 on the PS4, aren't you?
