Dead Space 3 might be more like Resident Evil 5

Dead Space 3 may be more like Resident Evil 5 if EA has anything to say about it, as they recently made the comparison to Capcom’s survival horror/action juggernaut in a recent interview. For better or for worse.

In the interview, EA Games President Frank Gibeau spoke about how Electronic Arts is doing their best to greatly expand not only their first-person shooter market (Medal of Honor, Battlefield: Bad Company 3) but also their action market. While he is pleased with the success of Dead Space 2 and the series as a whole, he still believes there is room to grow the franchise into a major action centerpiece like Capcom was able to do with Resident Evil. Which not only upped the pedigree critically, but also took the series to a new level and higher sales than before.

  • To quote:

    “The Resident Evil series was awesome, the early versions were phenomenal. Capcom did a good job of growing the franchise to a very large market,” Gibeau said. “I think we still have some areas to grow with Dead Space in terms of trying to reach a broader audience without losing the quality and that survival-horror mechanic. That’s how we’re going to think about it as we think about Dead Space 3 and what we do next with the IP.”

    “I think we still have some areas to grow with Dead Space in terms of trying to reach a broader audience without losing the quality and that survival-horror mechanic.” EA Games President Frank Gibeau

    Their next big action title will be the Suda 51-developed (of Grasshopper Manufacturer fame and creator of Killer 7 and No More Heroes) Shadows of the Damned, a team-up game with Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami that gives a grindhouse-style spin on the genre.

    “Overall, we want to try and grow the business in the action category,” Gibeau explaines further. “EA doesn’t really have a very strong stake there; survival-horror kind of lives in that genre. 3rd-person action is something that we think we can build and our Visceral Games team is really working hard at crafting some new IPs as well as building out ones that have succeeded. Horror movies are great films; it’s a genre that’s been around for decades. We think the same holds true for interactive.”

    Let’s not forget about Dante’s Inferno 2: Purgatory (my title) that is also hopefully still in development. I was a huge fan of the first game and if they were to make a second, it would hopefully pull a “Dead Space 2” and draw in both new and old fans, as well as take the action to a whole other level. I also REALLY want to see their take on a more Heavenly realm and more Biblical mythology, which is my forte.

    So what do you think about taking Dead Space into a more action-focused bent ala Resident Evil 5? Good or bad idea?

    Here is the Dead Space 2 launch trailer.

      Yeah, because that would definitely make sense. Seriously, how ****** do you think they are?

      What a horrible thought.  Everything I hate about RE5 would kill the Dead Space legacy.  Do we really need to step back to a failure?  In DS and DS2 you shoot on the go because you have to keep moving or you’ll get annihilated.  Whatever simple minded ***** is behind the stop and shoot concept from Resident Evil should be sacked.

    • DeadSpace Purist

      Capcom should keep nursing it’s pathetic 2D fighting games and leave the survival horror to the clear experts.  VISCERAL!!!  I want it dark, ruthless and terrifying.  Don’t you dare ruin the scariest game series on the planet!

      All five Resident Evil games combined are NOTHING compared to the final scene in “Severed”  Yes Capcom, your whole series is a joke because you insist that your character can’t move an inch while firing.  Dude had his leg ripped off, and still managed to wreck the necros and save the girl.

    • They can do anything they want with this game except for two things:

      1) Remove the survival-horror element of it; and
      2) Kill Ellie.  DO. NOT. KILL. ELLIE.  Seriously, it would just make Isaac seem like this worthless (yet awesome) harbinger of extremely freaking bad luck.

      Dead Space 1 and 2 are both amazing. EA you are absolute fools if you change this game into another Resident Evil 5 clone. Resident Evil has a larger fan base because it has been around since the first Playstation. Dead Space has it’s own identity and it is an identity you should stick with. The game is a thrill to play and honestly I can’t wait for the 3rd installment. Please for all that is Holy, DO NOT CHANGE DEAD SPACE!!!!

      Leave Dead space as Dead Space. What DeadSpace Purist said is true. If they put it on a planet I’m not playing it. Put it back on a ship, I liked the sprawl but it didn’t have that same creepy feel that the original had. I didn’t jump once during the second game. The first one was the first game in years that actually creeper me out even the slightest and I loved it. They tried to bring back the feel of that in the second one with the Ishimura chapter and it almost worked but not quite. They need more tight spaces etc. I don’t want to see a clone of the first game but I want that same feel. Not some shoot em up action game. They ruined Red Faction by doing the oposit and trying to turn it into an action horror game.
