EA confirms new Dead Space for next year
Out during the publisher’s 2013 fiscal year.
There will be a new Dead Space due for release during the current fiscal year ending March 31, 2013, publisher Electronic Arts has confirmed.
The publishing giant hinted at another outing from the survival horror franchise during a recent investor call. “At the foundation is another year of blockbuster brands: Madden NFL, FIFA, Sim City, Medal of Honor, Dead Space, and Need for Speed as well as mobile hits like The Simpsons Tapped Out, and Bejeweled.”
Other than that, not much was disclosed; however, in a statement issued to Game Informer, the publisher added: “There’s no further information today but watch for several big product announcements from EA at E3 in June.”
The rumor mill of a third major installment in the Dead Space series has been in full swing since late last year, with internet leaks and reports claiming that the new title’s setting is a planet molded by ice – which is a big departure from the previous space ship-set games.
