A nasty rumor circulated this morning that suggested EA had given the unannounced Dead Space 4 the ax in response to weak Dead Space 3 sales.
We ran the rumor and contributed to the pile of sites with the misinformation. As soon as EA reached out to other sites to deny the rumor, we updated our story to reflect the news.
Now we have an official quote from a member of EA’s internal PR team. Jino Talens officially reached out to us to clarify that the rumors were 100% false. Here’s the important bit of his note.
These rumors are patently false. While we have not released sales data for Dead Space 3, we are proud of the game and it continues to be an important IP to EA.
Dead Space is just fine, it seems. Good news for fans of the franchise.
