EA’s Söderlund: The Dead Space franchise is alive and kicking

Just cause we haven’t seen any Dead Space in a while doesn’t mean the franchise is finished, EA Studios Executive Vice President Patrick Söderlund told Polygon.

“To the largest extent we can, we want to get the game teams to work on the things they want to work on themselves,” Söderlund said. “There’s an incredible amount of enthusiasm over Hardline and the Star Wars game at Visceral.

“Do I think that we will create a Dead Space game again? Yes, I think so. But when we do so, we have to think about what made the previous ones successful and how we go about envisioning Dead Space for a new generation.

“Now, I’m not announcing a Dead Space game. We’re not building one just to be very clear, but I’m saying is there an opportunity or possibility to do one in the future? Absolutely.”

Visceral is currently at work on Battlefield: Hardline, followed by a new Star Wars game.

Let’s hope the next Dead Space game goes back to its roots, eh?
