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.
