Rumor: Dead Space Getting an FPS and a Flying Game
So this is interesting. Kotaku has another tipster, this one at EA, who is telling them all about plans for all sorts of strange new Dead Space games. Seriously, there are three of them.
Aside from Dead Space 3, we can look forward to a Dead Space first-person shooter, a Dead Space flying game and a Dead Space game that is “like Uncharted,” whatever that means.
I would, of course, be most excited about this flying game, seeing as how there aren’t nearly enough scifi flight simulators out there these days. We need some new ones.
The tipster says EA is doing this because they want to try to expand the audience for the series beyond what a regular horror game will give them. What I find interesting about this story is that the tipster doesn’t say if these other games will be horror games at all. Indeed, it seems impractical to think a flight sim would also be a horror game.
But we’ll see. I’m looking forward to seeing what the deal is with all this.
