Kotaku reports from an unnamed "insider" that an executive shake-up that almost led to Dead Space 3's cancellation has instead led the publisher to begin looking for ways to expand the horror franchise. The ideas supposedly being pursued include a Dead Space first-person shooter, a Dead Space flight combat game, and a Dead Space adventure game described by Kotaku as "Uncharted in space."
Of course, Dead Space 3 is also apparently still in the works. Kotaku reiterates earlier rumors that the sequel will be set on an ice planet. It will also supposedly feature co-op and will be the last game in the series to star Isaac Clarke.
