Electronic Arts Denies Dead Space 2 Cancellation Rumors, As EA Motive Shifts Team To Battlefield

EA's Dead Space Remake was released last year and received much critical praise and achieved considerable commercial success, being a best seller in the United States in January 2023. With sources indicating it had done very well, it came as a surprise when Giant Bomb's Jeff Grubb reported that Electronic Arts had planned to work on a Dead Space 2 Remake, but was shelved due to poor sales of the first. 

"They were working on Dead Space 2, and they are no longer working on it," Grubb spoke during the recent episode of the Game Mess Mornings podcast. "It is on the shelf because the first game had lackluster sales, is how it was phrased to me."

Electronic Arts yesterday their development team members from Motive (developers of the Dead Space Remake) to work on single player and multiplayer objectives. They are also heading and aiding in production of Iron Man. EA has addressed these rumors with IGN, stating "We don't normally comment on rumors but there is no validity to this story" from a spokesperson. 

Grubb, standing by his statement, insisted this information was legit, posting the following social media message.

I give you my permission to believe EA if you want, but whenever a company says "that isn't true" but they don't specify which part of the story they are talking about, well ... yeah. Dead Space 2 was definitely being planned. It had a code name. And they aren't making it now.
