We definitely do not want to piss off our fans by taking [Dead Space 3] too far from horror."
That’s according to EA Labels president Frank Gibeau, who has admitted to CVG that the publisher is aware of the less-than-ideal reception its E3 Dead Space 3 trailer received from the game’s fan base.
"What we’ve tried to do with each instalment is tell a different story about Isaac but at the same time bring in new features and ways to turn the game into a more connected experience,” he stated.
So we tried to open up the accessibility of the IP a little bit by adding a little bit more action, but not undermining the horror. We can’t not be a horror game because that’s what Dead Space is.
We listen to the fans and we hear them. We’re going to be releasing more assets over the coming months that show you how deep the horror is. It’s definitely not getting away from gore or horror, but at the same time it’s opening up to a larger audience by adding some elements."
Dead Space 3 will be released in February 2013.
