Visceral Games Would Like to Revisit ‘Dead Space’

I feel like I’ve written this story before, probably because I have, a few times now, but this time it’s a little different. With the launch of Battlefield: Hardline next week, developer Visceral Games will soon be free — aside from post-launch support, of course — to really dig into their next game.

What if that game ends up being another Dead Space? They certainly seem interested. Visceral Games General Manager Steve Papoutsis recently shared some (familiar) thoughts on the future of the franchise, which may continue sooner than expected.

“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,” Papoutsis cryptically explained to UK gaming mag Games TM while simultaneously teasing other, more mysterious projects, “but it’s definitely something we’d love to look at again.”

There it is. It’s almost verbatim what they’ve said in the past, but the timing is better than the last three times they’ve said it.

Hopefully we’ll get something a wee bit more substantial in the near future.

    John Carpenters favorite game.

      Still waiting for that movie.

    make it NOTHING like Dead Space 3, and more like DS 1 AND 2. Take out human enemies, make MORE necromorph enemy types including some bosses, and do away with universal ammo. Also take out that damn weapon customization crap, stick with the upgrade nodes for the already-made weapons you achieve throughout the course of the game like DS 1 and 2.

      I thought the human enemies were a good addition simply because it added much tot he storyline. Its been awhile since I’ve played so I don’t remember getting super annoyed as I did with Aliens: Colonial Marines when the Corporation got involved.

      • Brodequin

        I agree with you, Adam. Human enemies were ok in Dead Space 3…

        • Yakushiji Tenzen

          One of the main components of the game was that you “strategically dismember enemies” that certain limbs you cut would change the way the necromorphs came at you. When they added people into the mix it screwed it up, and became another average 3rd person shooter with people shooting back. IT. WAS. LAME. That was just one of the many things bad about DS 3.

          • Brodequin

            That’s a matter of opinion…

  • Daniel Anderson

    OMFG. Visceral games is doing hardlines? Fuck you for making me want to actually try it now. Yes, I need a new Deadspace. The series, much like mass effect, brought nothing new, innovative or preferable to gameplay. But those storylines are fan-fucking-tastic.

  • Brodequin

    New Dead Space would be great.

  • Jeremy Wade

    if they make another dead space then they should keep the weapon creating part that was in the 3rd game. but expand on it more and add a create your own exo suit to it as well. but i would lovvvvvvvvvve a live action film being made with john carpenter as the director.

  • DrewHamster

    Replaying through the 3rd with my best friend right now. I’ve never really understood why people hate that one when it is SO much fun! The Dead Space franchise is my favorite game series of the last generation with the 2nd one probably being in my top 5 games of all time!

  • Cheshire TrollCat

    id like it to.

  • John Palermo

    Just make it a bit more survival horror this time.

      Previous pay check i got was $5000 for Working 12 hours on weekly basis for doing a job at my home. Sister’s friend has been averaging $11k Monthly For some Time Now and she is working about twenty H /Weekly. I can’t believe how easy it was when I tried it. The potential with this is endless… Here is what i am doing>

    lets hope so. God, DS3 was such a let down.

  • Josh Brooks

    DS3 was a let down, DS2 was alright, I did enjoy the online capability and being able to play as the aliens, DS1 is classic, but they really should have kept the multiplayer vs. aspect into DS3 with the co-op.
