EA boss hints at Dead Space 3

During the Goldman Sachs Technology and Internet Conference EA CEO, John Riccitiello, left out Dead Space from his list of “strong, growing franchises” due to it needing another sequel to really kick start the series.

“Right now we’ve got strong, growing franchises including Madden, FIFA… Need for Speed, Medal of Honor and Battlefield – I include them as one because we’re unlikely to ship them in any one year at the same time. [There’s also] Mass Effect… Dragon Age… and the one that’s sort of not proven that’s coming later in our fiscal year, Star Wars [The Old Republic.] That excludes Dead Space because I think it will probably take Dead Space 3 before we get into that five million unit cadence versus say three, four.”

Promising news for all Dead Space fans.

Thanks to CVG for the info.

    kind of a no brainer for EA though. both dead spaces have good, if not great, reviews from just about everyone and they both sold/are selling well.

    i just played dead space 1 on my ps3 right before 2 came out. not ready to be scared poopless again so soon. hah. i’ll probably wait until it goes in the bargain bin before i pick it up…or a used copy. same with dead space 3.

    Let’s be honest the reason why ps3 owners are not flooding the market for dead space 2 is simply because its 4 weeks before KZ3 comes out. so I rather save my dough for that, not that i am taking anything away from dead space. I loved the first one, platinum it, and looking forward to this next installment but after i get through KZ3 SOCOM 4, Infamous 2, Resistance 3, uncharted 3, and maybe even the new twisted metal game!

    Ok your totally wrong aqua kz3 has nothing to do with dead space 2 .. Dead space is doing pretty well on sells i havnt played the full game but the demo was good believe me.. Ea has a lot of games to deliver deliver before startin on DEAD SPACE 3 but no surprise a 3 will be developed.
