Dead Space 3 not canceled, claims source.

The Dead Space series will branch away from the third-person shooter genre in its next couple releases, if a Kotaku source is to be believed.

According to an “insider,” the Dead Space team was told it must make the franchise bigger and better, leading Visceral to begin development on a first-person shooter and flight game centered around the series.

The team will supposedly move on to create “an Uncharted-like game” after these games are complete. Development on this game has yet to begin, according to the source, but is in its early planning stages.

Alongside these two Dead Space spin-offs, Dead Space 3 will still arrive. According to the insider, the game is a co-op title set on an ice planet, backing up previous rumors.

Dead Space 3 will be the last in the series to feature Isaac as the protagonist, ending a trilogy. The series will move on to become an “action-heavy” Dead Space, or “Uncharted in space,” according to Kotaku.

Electronic Arts has yet to comment on the claims.
