Dead Space 4 canned following poor sales - rumour
Dead Space 4 has been canned, and the future of the series hangs in the balance following poor sales of Dead Space 3. That's the claim of an alleged source who says EA has pulled the plug on Visceral Games' franchise.
Speaking with Videogamer, a supposed source close to the matter has stated that Dead Space 4 was in pre-production at Visceral, but was shuttered following weak sales of its predecessor. Before it was axed, a team at Visceral Montreal was said to have been creating prototypes and plot concepts for the game.
The blow came as Dead Space 3 allegedly failed to hit its proposed sales target, and saw EA executives meeting with Visceral Montreal to tell them the production had been terminated.
We've contacted EA for more on the matter.
