    Hmm never got around to playing dead space 2 from my PD plus but it seemed half my friend list that was online were playing dead space 3 a few weeks back low sales seems odd

    Maybe it will result in another idea from the developers or something though which would probably be good.

    Wow. This genuinely sucks shit through the small end of a funnel. But I have to ask, is ANY game (other than COD) performing to expectations lately? Especially in this economy?? Maybe the key here is, oh, I don't know..........to lower expectations of how well a game is going to do??? It just seems like we're hearing this about EVERY game and franchise lately......

    yeah why stick with a series that sells millions when you can just cancel it because it doesnt sell like COD? kinda sucks if this is true because id like to see what happens next in the series, seems like this would be an EA decision so unless they own the franchise or visceral i suppose visceral could just go with another publisher, heres hoping dead space continues for at least one more game to wrap up isaacs story

    We feel good about that growth but we have to be very paranoid about making sure we don't change the experience so much that we lose the fanbase.
    This is what killed it.

    And all this says is "an anonymous source", so that may mean that it just isn't being worked on at the moment. I would hope EA scrounges some money from other games' sales and put them towards a new Dead Space. It's not like EA's going bankrupt any time soon.

    Really? Fuck you EA. Seriously, this is bullshit. This is your best fucking franchise, and you kill it because it didn't bring in enough money? No wonder no one fucking likes you. What are you going to do when other games' sales drop? Cancel all those series'?

    This is what happens when you create a much loved niche horror game and then turn the sequels to nothing more than a 3rd person shooter.

    And if this is true, and that Dead Space was required to make 5million sales as many are saying, then Bioware best hope the next Mass Effect and Dragon Age games pull off some sales otherwise they'll be the next for layoffs. Bioware are on thin ice seeing as Mass Effect sales have dwindled slightly with each game

    Other then the layoffs and such to follow this is accually a good thing. DeadSpace 3 is not a very good game its ok dont get me wrong but not 5 million copys good. Now annonymous sources usually are not in the loop of the need to know whats gonna happen to a franchise. We will wait for ea to jazz up something to say probly today or tomorrow.

    I haven't beaten dead space 3, but I love the game. I love the series! The first one is one of the first games I bought when I got my ps3, and I've preordered both the second and third entries. If the series gets cancelled, I'll be disappointed, but as one if the first posters said, mayhaps the developers will start working on a new ip in its absence.

    Thanks to Thunder for the platbar!!!

    Haven't played DS3 but didn't hear so many good things about it. I have to admit I'm glad to hear this, I rather they'd leave it there instead of milking it more and more.
    Hopefully we'll get some other merchandise to expand the franchise though, in my opinion the book and comic books were the best part of Dead Space.

    Wow that sucks. I thought that Dead Space was really popular. I am surprised it's been cancelled.

    Did you hear bad things from yer friends/coworkers/etc., or reviews? I haven't heard anything negative about it. I haven't read any reviews so far, but the ratings I've seen have been highly favourable.

    I didn't hear bad things, just not many good things. Like the story wasn't as good and felt forced, or that it's not really scary, etc. Let alone the micro transactions thing, that's never good.
    Again, I haven't played the game but played the demo and liked it, though the changes made to make it more actiony were obvious.
    I will get the game when it's cheaper, I just hate to pay over $60 (since DLC was already announced) for full games.

    Looks like that "wider audience" they, oh so desperately sought, let them down.

    "Full games" does not mean the add on content that is sold seperately.

    Hmm, dead space 3 just released not 4

    Kindof surprised by low sales. Typical EA style though
