Much like those notorious necromorphs, the Dead Space series kept coming back with a second and third installment and even a couple of side-stories with books, movies and smaller games that were all generally received well with only descent emerging from some fans about the third game losing sight of what made the original so special.
So why, after the series gained so much momentum in such a short period of time, did the Dead Space completely fall off the map? What the hell happened to Dead Space?

I have played one week ago all dead space games for the first time and it was like playing the same game, DS 1-3 are all very similar games and I have no idea why people who didnt liked dead space 3 supposedly liked previous 2 games. The differenes between all these games are subtle. Dead space 1 was more like alien 1 (more claustrophobic locations and I'm sure because it was the first game in the series people were more surprised seeing scary necromorphs for the first time) while DS2 and especially 3 was more action packed like Aliens (1986) movie, but still all games were scary. I enjoyed DS3 the most because of perfected shooting mechanics and weapon crafting, varied locations, movie like atmosphere and music.
Arguably a top 5 greatest horror game franchises ever created for me !! This game, this fucking game was a HUGE refreshment for me, in the world of resident evil and silent hill games being the main attraction for over a decade . And this game FINALLY created a perfect mix of horror, action, and mostly CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT. Isaac Clark was a goddamn amazing character throughout the series and I'm so upset till this day! That Visceral and EA couldn't make in the third installment....the third game was just a COMPLETE strip down of the horror factor in the series and derived almost every main piece of character background. Carver and Isaac SHOULDVE BEEN the main focus of dead space three and they shouldve had a much more horror based atmosphere. Its sooo sad that this series went to complete shit and I hope hope hope to God, that some great studio out there will revamp this amazing series because even till THIS DAY, TEN YEARS after the first games release, the graphics are STILL THAT GOOD.
I think Destiny is a partial continuation of Dead Space in a sense. Looking at the grimoire cards/story they fit hand in hand which could explain Destiny's collapse and the group in the game dead orbit, if that's not a refrerence to the game I don't know what is.
What the hell you people want from deadspace again anyway? they all dead. Humans on earth all dead. They were all dead. Turned into new moon. This is Dead Space now.
Unless there is a new hero coming from humans colony in outer space.
Or The Hero N7 coming from the past to help.
I know this will sound cliché, but considering Issac is suffering with psychosis in the form of auditory and psychical hallucinations, couldn’t we just say that dead space 3 was all in his head ? He could be sleeping next to Ellie in the ship after dead space 2 ending. Or better yet, he could still be in dead space 1 ending escape ship !
All three games can be played on xbox one and the second two games DS2 & DS3 were free for Xbox gold, the third one just released this month.
All games benefit from the power of xbox1 backwards compatible natural hardware upgrades like resolution, frame rate and load times
My favourite game franchise of modern times. I’ve recently downloaded all 3 from the x box store (for free) and they still hold up very well basically ten years later. And they are still enthralling and really fun to play. Says a lot about the games that are being pumped out nowadays.
Well think of the dead space trilogy like a old train that used coal the train went on for a fear while but then ran out of coal and slowly came to a stop and everyone got out and left. Now think of this now as dead space the trilogy slowly ran out of money and was abandoned by the developers and now most of them are gone now. No money no team no dead space sadly.
I think a Dead Space 4 could be a saving grace for EA, they could really prove themselves. Personally, I really enjoyed every dead space game, and I'm currently in progress with dead space 3. As of recently, Xbox has released the third game for free (Games With Gold) after earlier releasing 1 and 2. I think they could use the downloads and ratings of people playing it for free as a means to judge whether or not a 4th game would be a good idea. I would love to see dead space 4, but I'm afraid EA will screw it up like usual with microtransactions and greed. They might be changing though, with the whole "No paid DLC" scenario with Battlefield 5.
My fan story for dead space 4
From the DLC , it shows that the brother moons have arrived to earth space.
When another huge moon appeared in front of them, they lost conscious.
When the story starts, they wake up from unconscious, they see the moon.
Their ship are somehow broken, and not able to move. Therefore, they need to hop from ship to ship.
Inside of all the ship, there are some danik left over men there occupied all the ships but they all gone crazy and also keep worshipping the moons just like the DLC pack, they need to search for resources to fix the ship to get out of earth space.
Later on, somehow they go to another dimensions and understand that aliens artifacts have different piece of blueprint of a machine that can destroy the moons. Since aliens machine mission failed, they made artifacts to keep all the blueprints.
They need to find some way to translate the aliens words.
Though, after finding resources in different ship and fighting the left over men.
They got the chance to go back to the aliens planet to gather all the artifacts to form the machine to destroy moons one by one.
Right before going, they received SOS from a ship near by. And just recently, so they went check out.
They found Ellie,(sorry I forgot how to spell her name) they went back to the aliens planet together, Issac and Carver told all their discoveries and they are sure , there are still hopes in the universe.
When they finally arrive there, they are about 3' chapters about fixing or refilling the ship while they require lot of amount of fuel.
Once again, they go around the abandoned ships to look for fuel.
Then, they finally finally arrive to the aliens planet. Ellie, stayed at the ship to guide them and send them the best routes. They start to look around the whole planet.
And every are different. The sky is dark, fire burns out evrrything. Just like how the DLC looks like when they first woke up. All the necromorph enhanced which make fighting them harder, during the exploration. The Signal that brother moons keep giving out makes Issac and Carver crazy. At some moment, they will fight each other cause of the craziness.
They often hear voices in their head and they can't determine whether it is real or not. The Signal often lead them to the wrong direction.
Some of the Danik's left over men , still hanging around some where.
When Isaac and Carver find some of them. The left over just keep repeating *They are here, extinction coming!*
Or *I am not ready, I am not ready!*
Robert Norton's shadow keep haunting around.
They soon find a paper of a scientists about the translation of aliens words. Also with an alien article about where to build the machine and where to find the blueprints.
It says that they need to go to some sort of alien's laboratory which is hidden inside the alien city. And before that, the need the codex in the previous dead space game to unlock the front door.
They went to find the laboratory that they go before and reconstruct a codex. Necromorph everywhere, they fighting them.
Soon, they finally reconstruct the codex. The moon Signal makes Danik's left over men gone crazy and they started to kill them. Issac and Carver managed not letting the signal affect them.
*Death is just the beginning, join us! make the universe whole!*
The voice keep haunting their mind.
When they get back into the alien's city.
All the floor are cracked. Also made lot of cliff. Lot of main path are blocked . So they get the time bomb and blow up all the road walk through it.
Later on, Isaac accidentally blow away Carver down to the cliff. Luckily, he survived, from that time, they need to split to find another way to reunite (this is what dead space 3 Misses, split mission. )
When Carver is downstairs, he keep seeing his loved ones.
They keep saying *fix the scar, join us. You will be with us again!* Creepily. And his son say *Dad? Dad? You are still here? Come here! When are you coming home dad?* While Carver is confused and scared again, Isaac keep calming him. But Carver is getting crazy. He begins to say something weird *come on, they need us. Let just get the fuck to there. Everything will be alright but let me kill you first!* Carver loved one just keep appearing and they becoming creepier, his dead wife walked closer to him everytime she appears. When she gets in front of him, she holds a knife and stab him and it goes away once again. And she said *See you soon, we soon will be reunite! MAKE US WHOLE, MAKE US WHOLE!*since then, she stop appeared.
After that, Carver and Isaac finally met back. But first, he pointed the guy at Isaac and said *Let fucking end this nightmare, there are no fucking hope! Do you hear me? There are no fucking hopes! The moons are here, the whole universe are probably wiped out!I can't deal with shits like this now!* Then he shoots Isaac's arm. They start to fight each other.
To be continued
How do you guys think of this fan fiction of dead space 4?
All dead space games were awesome as well as all mass effect series.those who bitterly criticized the latest installments of both series are either morons or casual gamers that don't know any shit about gaming.
One of my all time favorites. The I.P. just sitting in EA's vault of money collecting dust. Shameless, greedy, selfish businessmen. Sell the I.P. to someone who will make DS4, and actually knows the potential of the series.
People can hate on deadspace 3 all they want. But it was probably my favorite game, PURELY because you could play With a friend. My friend and I beat dead space 3 together about 4 times. The crafting was also fantastic
Peeple complain to much. I'm sure that if people were not so picky, complained less and just enjoyed the good sides of Dead Space 3 and less time on the bad we would all be playing Dead Space 4 made by viscerl right now and it probably wouldnt of sucked. I enjoy every single one of the Dead Space games and yes there were some bad things about the 3rd game, but im not a 80 man that bitches about being to hot or cold every 5 mins, so i just played Dead Space 3 and focused on the things i did like. as for battlefield hardline you cant totally be mad at visceral for that cause i mean how many strong pvp baced games have they developed in the past before? Not alot to my knowledge, so honestly i blame EA and the fans. One just stop and look at the type games they had to pick up and make before visceral was closed, then look at the movie hungery EA and how they think all the money is now in PVP based games now days, and then look at the fans and how little support visceral got from them. Maybe one day we will get a new Dead Space, but it will be crap and not what the true fans are used to due to a new designer taking over and changing it and then the game will tank and that will be the end of it. lol people can hate on the trueth all they want but it is what it is.
What happened to Dead Space? EA
I would love a remaster trilogy of this and Mass Effect, both owned by EA. However I shall still enforce my boycott of all EA products, at least until maybe Anthem, I'll have to wait and see with that game.
I just wanted to point out what I just happened to realize that I thought was both funny and interesting!
1) The original Marker the Black Marker reminds me of pictures of the Islamic Kaaba, both black and both having thousands of people surrounding them
2) The moon is the Symbol of Islam and in Dead Space the moon IS convergence!
IT WAS RIGHT IN OUR FACE THIS WHOLE TIME!
Dude ill never forgive EA. As if the shit they pulled with the mass effect series wasnt enough, they went and ruined this game for their greed. Rarely have I seen such potential in a game and especially in the genre, and EA has to go and fuck everything up. I wouldnt even play a dead space 4 if they made one, I dont want EA ruining what few good memories of this series I have.
EA kill off everything, or end up over milking it.
Anyone remember the Road Rash series from the 90s? Road Rash 2 on the Megadrive was awesome, only bettered by the 3DO version (which was also superior to the PlayStation version).
I'd love to see both Road Rash and Dead Space make a return.
They haven't given up on Dead Space, wanat i think his name was had an idea for DS4, the game would've been non-linear where you would've played as Ellie as you go from ship to ship fighting hordes of Necromorphs and trying to get supplies and find survivors while trying to make your ship shock ready, it would take place during the Necromorph apocalypse. AKA At the end of DS3's DLC. They were to also expand the story of the necromorphs, the markers and humanity's purpose to the markers. That means DS4 might be made, hopefully if it DOES get made. It would be made by an actual professional? Check out JPKOrigins. This guy does alot of good videos. I found him just by searching up DS4 just because i felt like it. And as it turns out he's make a movement. AKA, him. And A LOT of dead space fans are making a "Peaceful Protest" asking for a DS4, honestly i wouldn't care about who makes it.
Mark Davies, "Made" is a strong word... they published the games. Many of their great franchises were actually created and made by other developers - many of which no longer exist (e.g. Westwood Studios were great for creating the original Command & Conquer games in the 90s).
If they make a fourth Dead Space they gotta do what they’re doing with the new Halloween movie. Just pretend all the sequels didn’t happen and continue from the first one, but in this case include Dead Space 2 because that shit was good.
I dont get why people like dead space. Its just an over rated horror game thats not even scary or fun. Really bland and washed out blaring horror music in your ears and monster screams as if its supposed to be scary. Im glad this franchise is dead
Despite the EA nonsense, Dead Space 3 wasn't even that bad. The co-op was a lot of fun, the two protagonists grew to have a great dynamic, and there were honestly hardly any human enemies. When there was, it didn't feel shoehorned in and those segments were very short and for story purposes. Though yeah of course it was the weakest of the series, I still think it was a solid game. Just my thoughts.
Its amazing EA is still in business it often screws up the making of games so much by interfering with the developers of the original ideas its a wonder anything ever is finished as originally intended. EA is all about profit not content only interested in what the stock holders concerns for the short term. Yes making money is a large part of selling games but when that interferes with the concept of a game design an those who put the working into it that becomes a problem that players notice an it does affect sales in the long run an the reputation of a company.
I personally like all the Dead Space stories, and don't really get what is all the fuss about in DS3. It's a tad different from the DS1. The best thing about DS3 is you see some character development in Isaac.
If you hate microtransactions just don't do them. That is what I do and I never had any problems with the game.
You don't really need those suits and weapons to enjoy the story anyway!
Franchise is pretty much dead now, but if I were to include a design element for a sequel it would be: Make dismemberment a factor for Isaac.
Hear me out. In many of the death animations for Isaac, the necromorphs will take off an arm or a leg or something. I think if this actually played more into the gameplay, it would bring back a lot of the visceral tension and resource-based gameplay that makes the experience terrifying. Instead of outright dying, if you lost an arm or leg and had to limp onward/back to an area you could apply a prosthetic (cybernetic or otherwise), it would reinforce that thematic element of gameplay as well as hit on the resource-scarcity. Basic prosthesis restore functionality, but you could augment them to improve yourself.
Do you use that tungsten for ammunition or an improved leg? What will the consequences of that decision be later on when you run out of ammo?
I dunno - I think it would be fun ^.^;;;
