Visceral boss “confident” of success with Dead Space: Extraction

Visceral Games boss Glen Schofield isn’t put off by the relative failure of other core Wii products – Dead Space: Extraction will do the business, he’s told GI.

“I’m confident – it is an experiment, but there’s going to be 50 million Wiis out there by the time the game comes out, so if you only hit 2 per cent of the installed base and you’ve got a huge number,” he said.

“I don’t know – there have been some already, Resident Evil and House of the Dead, that have done really well, so we’re pushing for that 80-plus-rated game, and that’ll put you in the top 5 per cent of all Wii games… because most do not have a great score.”

Extraction is out this autumn. The game’s exec producer, Steve Papoutsis, told VG247 recently that the title was needed for Wii.

“As a hardcore gamer myself, I want stuff like this on the Wii,” he said.

“I love the Wii, I love Nintendo. I love all the platforms, but I really want something that I can play co-operatively on the Wii with a friend that hits that sweet spot I think Dead Space: Extraction is in.”
