Dead Space seems to be drifting off into the darkness of space, what with Visceral Games now flexing its trigger arm with Battlefield: Hardline, but EA’s Patrick Soderlund isn’t ruling out a return to the series.
Speaking of Battlefield: Hardline, we’ve just posted up some fresh PS4 gameplay from the shooter’s Blood Money mode, with commentary. Check it out for explosions and other mad shit.
Now, speaking with Polygon, EA Studios executive vice president Soderlund touched on the way the publisher’s first-party teams share projects and approach different franchises, including Visceral’s work on Dead Space.
“To the largest extent we can, we want to get the game teams to work on the things they want to work on themselves,” he told the site. “There’s an incredible amount of enthusiasm over Hardline and the Star Wars game at Visceral.
“Do I think that we will create a Dead Space game again? Yes, I think so. But when we do so, we have to think about what made the previous ones successful and how we go about envisioning Dead Space for a new generation.
“Now, I’m not announcing a Dead Space game. We’re not building one just to be very clear, but I’m saying is there an opportunity or possibility to do one in the future? Absolutely.”
