EA is likely to one day return to the Dead Space franchise, but isn't currently working on anything, EA Studios executive vice president Patrick Söderlund has told Polygon.

"Do I think that we will create a Dead Space game again? Yes, I think so," explained Söderlund. "But when we do so, we have to think about what made the previous ones successful and how we go about envisioning Dead Space for a new generation.

"Now, I'm not announcing a Dead Space game. We're not building one just to be very clear, but I'm saying is there an opportunity or possibility to do one in the future? Absolutely."

Söderlund suggests that the decision on what games are made is partly down to what the studios themselves want to work on.

"To the largest extent we can, we want to get the game teams to work on the things they want to work on themselves," he said. "There's an incredible amount of enthusiasm over Hardline and the Star Wars game at Visceral."

So there's not much enthusiasm over Dead Space, then...
