Dead Space 2: development stopped? Jeff Grubb speaks

Bad news for the development of the remake: Jeff Grubb acts as a clear harbinger for any possible return of Dead Space 2 to the spotlight

“In space, no one can hear us shouting” at the scandal and this is why it is good to immediately make peace about it developmentor on the interruption thereof, of remake Of Dead Space 2. The restoration with which Motive Studios he restored luster to his predecessor and was adored by critics, including us who defined him as a “shining star”, but as we well know… paper sings. And as always Electronic Arts it is, the works are apparently, and irremediably, stopped. The sad confirmation, a term we don't even feel like quoting, is given to us by the always talkative insider Jeff Grubb. The latter, in the recent episode of his Game Mess Mornings with Lex Luddy, the “hard work” of the development team was interrupted by few sales of the first remake.

Jeff Grubb and the remake of Dead Space 2 that never was: development closes its doors

There's not much hope for the development: “If you've been looking forward to Dead Space 2, the news is bad. Simply terrible. […] They say the team will be split between two projects going forward, specifically Iron Man and Battlefield.” The insider conclude the funereal sentence thus: “They were working on it, but not anymore. Everything remains on the shelf due to the poor sales of the first one.” For the record, Englishism “put on the shelf” is more about interrupting a development cycle than canceling a project, but the former tends to lead to the latter. Patrick Klaus of Motive Studios stated that for Iron Man an “important milestone” has been reached. Now we know which man in armor we will have the reins of it won't be Isaac Clarke.
