Patrick Soderlund states that “gamers will be very happy” with what Visceral has in store.
We all know the story about EA supposedly being unhappy with the Dead Space franchise, which turned out to be false. EA indicated that the Dead Space franchise is alive and well. EA Games Label executive VP Patrick Soderlund actually spoke to Eurogamer about the same but also mentioned that Visceral Games is working on something else currently.
“Is that team working on a Dead Space game today? No they’re not. They’re working on something else very exciting. You have to think of it from that perspective. Is it better to put them on the fourth version of a game they’ve done three previous versions of before? Or is it better to put them on something new that they want to build, that they have passion for?
“Will there be another Dead Space game? Who knows? Have we killed it? No, of course not. But right now that dev team is focused on something else that you and other gamers will be very happy with.”
Visceral Games is one of the developers assigned to work on a next generation Star Wars game, after a multi-year publishing deal was signed between Disney and EA.
