Dead Space 4 development halted after poor sales of Dead Space 3; Franchise looking to be shut down.

Speaking on condition of anonymity, a source familiar with the unannounced project told that Dead Space 4 had been in pre-production at Visceral Games, with a small team at Visceral Montreal allegedly tasked with developing prototypes and mock-ups for the title, and collaborating on ideas for the game's narrative.

However, the project was cancelled after Dead Space 3 failed to meet its sales targets, our source claims, telling us that EA executives visited Visceral Montreal last month to inform staff that the project had been terminated and announce details of the company's restructuring.

Visceral Montreal is rumoured to have closed following the restructuring.

Wait, what??

Fair enough, but I find this news somewhat believable, given the colossal kick in the balls EA got with TOR..
