This morning, the news broke that EA filed a trademark for the name "Visceral Games". While it's possible this is a new studio, it seems more likely that this is the new name for the development studio responsible for Dead Space.
mmmmm. Dead Space
Dead Space was some incredibly awesome stuff, and I can see why the team wants to do this. They deserve the reputation and respect cause that was one of the best games last year and one of my favorites this gen.
Yep, that whole team needs to stick together. DS was good stuff.
I don't know where they get their info from, but Dead Space was developed at EA headquarters in Redwood Shores. Visceral Games is suppose to be a new division of EA like Maxis, EA Sports,EA online, etc...as far as I know. But I could be wrong if they do decide to start a new studio. I do know for sure if it's a new studio, it will be almost entirely new team other than a few key people. Most of the Dead Space team are now working on Dante's Inferno. I know this because I work on the 2nd floor and Dante is on the 3rd floor. Dead Space was on the 4th floor which is now empty.
Dead Space was one of the best games of 2008 and I wouldn't be surprised if a lot of games from this developer are hits.
