It’s only five years since Dead Space 3, so the Dead Space fran­chise could still make a come­back, but we doubt it will. De­vel­oper Vis­ceral was closed down last year, and the de­ter­minedly lin­ear space-hor­ror third-per­son shooter no longer chimes with its pub­lisher EA’s cur­rent modus operandi of con­cen­trat­ing on games-as-a-ser­vice and open worlds. Dead Space was ex­pen­sive to make and saw di­min­ish­ing sales re­turns with each it­er­a­tion. But we loved how it let us dis­mem­ber aliens with jury-rigged weapons, and would be chuffed to see it re­turn, in what­ever form it might take.
