Dead Space 3 is in development, according to a Siliconera source. The site has first details on the game, which they claim moves away from the spaceship setting, instead dropping Issac Clarke on the icy planet of Tau Volantis.
The game apparently starts with Issac crash-landing on the planet, and–thinking he’s the only survivor–he heads to an abandoned waystation for shelter from the snowstorm. There he finds a badly-injured survivor, who tells him there are other survivors at another facility. One of the group is Ellie, who returns from the first Dead Space.
Siliconera has a few more details, but they’re a bit spoilerish. Read them here.
Enemies in the threequel are apparently called “the hive mind.”
Siliconera claims their source is the same that leaked them details about EA’s recently announced Syndicate reboot a few months back.
