Confirmed: Dead Space 2 ‘In the Works’
While speaking with Variety, general manager Glenn Schofield, might have slipped some info about a new Dead Space game already in the works. During the interview he was talking about the possibly of a movie sometime in the future and how they would want the story to gap the two games,
“We’re talking with movie studios right now. We have been all along. The difference with this is we need to go in and say, “This is not a $10 million movie.” Sure somebody could make it, but that’s not what we are looking for. It’s an expensive movie. By doing this now, we could have a movie that bridges the gap between the two games.”
So they have confirmed two separate stories, one they are shopping around the license to movie studios and more importantly — we’re getting a sequel to one of EA’s best original I.P.’s. Of course if the game some how doesn’t sell well (which it is), than maybe we wouldn’t see one.
But of course we think it is selling just fine and figured we would have seen more than just one game — in fact most likely we’ll see it turn into a franchise. I just didn’t think we would have had an ‘announcement’ so soon.
