Rumor: Dead Space 4 canned, series in trouble following poor sales of Dead Space 3

EA has ceased development on Dead Space 4 and effectively axed the series following lower than anticipated sales of Dead Space 3, VideoGamer has learned.
Speaking on condition of anonymity, a source familiar with the unannounced project told VideoGamer that Dead Space 4 had been in pre-production at Visceral Games, with a small team at Visceral Montreal allegedly tasked with developing prototypes and mock-ups for the title, and collaborating on ideas for the game’s narrative.
However, the project was cancelled after Dead Space 3 failed to meet its sales targets, our source claims, telling us that EA executives visited Visceral Montreal last month to inform staff that the project had been terminated and announce details of the company’s restructuring.
Visceral Montreal is rumoured to have closed following the restructuring.

    Don’t worry. In about five years, they’re going to reboot the franchise for PS4 and call the new game Dead Space.
