EA has canned the Dead Space series, according to a new report.

Development on Dead Space 4 was ceased after lower than expected sales of Dead Space 3, a source told VideoGamer.com.

The game had been in pre-production at Visceral Games and Visceral Montreal. The latter was reportedly closed after a restructuring.

EA declined to comment when contacted by Eurogamer this morning.

Looks like they finally milked the series dry...good riddance.

Good riddance? The Dead Space series was excellent. Personally I'm gutted about this.

Ow please, they milked it on the 3rd as much as possible. EA will can more games unless the company realizes the true way to go is not on Origin but on Steam.

Origin and Micro transactions. 2 reasons that they did not get my money. I spent a large amount of hour in DS 1 & 2. Oh well maybe it will come to steam one day and i can get it for 5 bucks on a sale.

I thought Dead Space 3 was only ever going to be a trilogy anyway?

Bah, EA is killing off it's own games because of the way they are trying to greedily exploit their customers.

What's next? Battlefield? Because they will do it. It will come to that.

I couldn't play more than about a third of Dead Space 3, I just didn't like how it felt to play. Dead Space 1 and 2 were great, and really satisfying to slice up necromorphs, but I just didn't think Dead Space 3 was nearly as good.

Then of course there was the microtransactions link popping up everywhere, lack of atmosphere, and I disliked the weapon crafting system. But it was mainly the gameplay for me. The game just felt like they 'sold out' and tried to appeal to as many people as possible, and lost sight of making a focused gaming experience. Instead of making a game that is very good at what it is, they made a game that is average at everything it is trying to be.

So I'm not sad there will be no Dead Space 4. If they 'reboot' the series then fine, but not in the same vein as Dead Space 3 for me..

I wouldn't be surprised if ea decides to kill all of their games and starts releasing only bf games since they are profitable.

Another good series, screwed up by EA, nice job guys... Their HQ should be nuked from orbit when it's working at peak capacity.

Unbelievable.

If they continue to screw their franchises, i dont think EA will see 2014 or 2015, that's a good news though.

That's exactly what EA was going for.

This is the real issue. But the problem is that they will never recognize that.

Blah blah blah blah blah

I have no love for EA but they are doing THE SAME THING that EVERY OTHER DEVELPER Does....2k games, ubisoft, square enix,blizzard activision they all do microtransactions yet do you complain about them here? There's some amazing double standard with EA, and it's completely silly to be honest. Do you all whine and stamp your feet when blizzard sells a battle.net pet for WoW that costs 20$? How about a 50$ faction change? Or a 3$ costume in Street Fighter 4? Everyone does microtrasactions. Hypocrites much? I hope none of you buy games from 2k, ubisoft, blizzard, square enix, bethesda, capcom, because if you do you're all hypocrites. Everyone does microtransactions, E V E R Y O N E does microtransactions.

I've been playing DS3, bought it yesterday and i'm loving it, it has some flaws, like the generic ammo, but still a very good game
