With the imminent release of Battlefield: Hardline, Visceral Games has begun discussing what’s next for the studio.
Aside from the upcoming Star Wars game that’s being developed by Visceral Games currently, general manager Steve Papoutsis told GamesTM that he and his team would be interested in returning to the Dead Space franchise at some point.
“Many, many people here at Visceral have a warm spot in their heart for Dead Space, and right now we’re busy with Hardline and…other things, but it’s definitely something we’d love to look at again. There’s definitely a lot of interest internally for us to pick that up again at a future date.”
Based on that statement it doesn’t sound like we’ll hear anything about a new Dead Space game in the near future, but it’s always good to know that a development studio has “interest” in creating another entry at some point.
Let’s just hope when Visceral does eventually return to the Dead Space franchise, it goes back to the roots of the original game. Dead Space 2 and 3 weren’t bad games at all, but they sort of evolved into something the fans of the franchise never wanted them to be.
