EA is yet to officially announce the next game in the Dead Space franchise, but work is definitely being done - why else would the publisher be hiring staff to work on the franchise?

Job listings have appeared which confirm EA is looking to hire a senior development director, audio director and senior VFX artist to work on the Dead Space franchise. "This is a major opportunity to greatly contribute to an exciting unique franchise," the job ads state.

Dead Space 2 hit stores in January this year, earning a solid 8/10 in our Dead Space 2 review, so whatever is next for the series is likely to be some way off. Developer Visceral Games has also worked on Dante's Inferno - a sequel to which could well appear before Dead Space 3.

Dead Space 1 would've been almost legendary if left alone - the sequels will unfortunately do nothing but dilute the great experience of the original.
(although Extraction on the Wii (and PS3 obviously) actually seems pretty damn atmospheric so far!)

You wouldn't have lost that feeling in the 2nd half of the game, if anything, the feeling would have grown.

Dead Space 1 is probably my favorite game this generation. I didn't bother finishing Dead Space 2. I got about halfway through. It was all great, but, I couldn't shake the 'I've seen it all before' feeling.

Same as Chaza DS1 is also on my wish list. I try to always play the originals before sequels if I can help it. Plus it works for my wallet too.
So many games so little time and money!
An article was posted here mentioning Dead Space 3 in mid Feb which was close enough to the release of Dead Space 2 at the end of January.

Not for me, they shouldn't have bothered with Dead Space 2, it added nothing to the original, which I enjoyed very much, and suffered from familiarity.

Would be a no brainier that already work for the game is in process. Was it not reported that the game was in-development already since Dead Space 2 was launched? I cannot remember where I saw, but I will try and find it if I can.

I hope Dead Space 3 has more the '***** your pants' than the odd occasional jump, and be overwhelmed by enemies.
