After a report from Videogamer indicated that Visceral Montreal was closed down and Dead Space 4 cancelled due to the poor performance of the recently released third game, EA immediately responded by saying that the franchise was alive and well.

An EA spokesperson has already stated that, “While we have not announced sales for Dead Space 3, we are proud of the game and the franchise remains an important IP to EA.

Meanwhile, several designers and leads across Visceral and EA have debunked the report. From Ul Lead at Dead Space developer Visceral Games, Dino Ignacio who responded very elegantly…

To EA creative director Ian Milham (also ex-art director for Dead Space), who rubbished the report on Twitter:
