Dead Space fans can look forward to more limb-cutting and space-themed scares. Electronic Arts has confirmed that they will release a new title in the popular survival horror series during the 2013 fiscal year, which ends March 2013.

EA revealed the information to investors yesterday during a conference call when it included Dead Space among a list of brands (most of which were games that saw yearly installments, like Madden NFL, FIFA, and Need for Speed) that will see new releases in the 2013 fiscal year.

Seeking more information and clarification on if the new game is Dead Space 3 or another spinoff like the on-rails, first-person Dead Space: Extraction, GameInformer contacted EA. A representative from the publisher responded, “”There’s no further information today, but watch for several big product announcements from EA at E3 in June.”

EA Chief Executive John Riccitiello told investors yesterday that developing strong brands is one of the company’s strategic pillars, which is a nice way of saying that they will release a lot of sequels. Considering Dead Space’s popularity, the announcement of another title in the series was always a question of when rather than if.
