Dead Space 3 was fine. Played it coop.

It was a disgrace which should have never seen the sunlight.

Maybe they did go somewhere else.

A lot of the times they get moved around, other times laid off, mostly moved around though I believe.

Where are their new creations? :(


When your career is development, you end up anywhere

The people who got axed from making Modern Warfare 2 were the ones who made Respawn.

When you're part of a team, you make what the team is tasked to make, not whatever you want to make.

they should kickstart a dead space spiritual successor, without ea forcing in coop/mtx they could actually make a good game again.

I don't know what sort of IP rights Visceral Games signed with EA, but I'd be willing to bet that EA for all practical purposes, owns Dead Space even if they're just going to let it rot until the end of the company - at which the franchise will be sold off to the highest bidder to afford one of the executives a third summer vacation home. The dev team probably can't do anything Dead Space related without infringing on that.

hence why he said "spiritual successor" and not Dead Space 4

they get canned or they get redistributed to other developers owned by the publisher

Usually when they shut down, it means they aren't good anymore.

I mean, it's a for profit industry anyway, not like the people shutting them down don't like money.

An example are all those so-called greats and the recent turds they've developed via crowdfunding ( Mighty No 9, Yooka, Bloodstained, Shenmue III, etc ).

They got fired or shut down for a reason.

Unless it's EA, in which case it means you as a dev need to take the blame for the publisher's bad decisions.
