Visceral Games' Dead Space 2 is only just out of the gate, but that hasn't stopped Electronic Arts from mentioning a potential third game in the franchise.
The brief mention came from the mouth of EA's CEO John Riccitiello when he was speaking at a Goldman Sachs Technology and Internet Conference. He listed numerous high-profile franchises that the company has under its belt, and then mentioned Dead Space:
"That [previous list of franchises] excludes Dead Space because I think it will probably take Dead Space 3 before we get into that five million unit cadence versus say three, four," said Riccitiello.
Of course, this isn't confirmation that Dead Space 3 is in development, but it's a sign that they wouldn't be opposed to it.
