Dead Space spin-offs coming, including an FPS, a flight sim, and an Uncharted-style action adventure

Dead Space spin-offs coming includin FPS, flight sim, and action adventure (EA, Visceral, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Dragon Age isn’t the only EA property whose horizons the publisher’s planning to expand. 

Dead Space is widely regarded as one of the publisher’s most promising titles, having already spawned a sequel, a rail-shooter spin-off, a puzzle game, animated videos, comics, and a novel.  Apparently, that’s not enough for EA – the company still wants to broaden the franchise, looking for new methods of pitting their fans against grotesque, hideous, mutant alien zombies. 

According to Kotaku’s insider (who’s been busy today, it seems), EA’s got big plans for its franchise. Currently, they’re developing a first-person shooter, an action adventure game (ala Uncharted) and a flight simulator. Yes, you read that last one right... EA apparently wants to make a Dead Space flight simulation game.

This change, Kotaku notes, comes at a strange time in Dead Space’s life – a management shuffle at EA has brought in new executives that, as executives often do, nearly killed a great franchise. Why? Because Dead Space games don’t sell like Uncharted games do.  

Good news in amongst all these strange rumors, though. According to Kotaku’s insider, Dead Space 3 is most definitely not cancelled. The game, taking place on the planet Tau Volantis, will trade pitch black darkness for something even more terrifying: snow blindness. Flashlights won’t help you here, folks. The insider continues that this game will be the last in the series to feature the engineer, Isaac Clarke. 

After that, we’ll be seeing the franchise expand, for better or worse. Let’s hope the new management doesn’t kill any innovation we might see in the series, as Kotaku fears it might.
