Although the game's only been out a little over a week, EA's Dead Space is already generating a lot of "potential franchise" buzz. Variety's Ben Fritz posted some tantalizing morsels in his blog, The Cut Scene, earlier this week.
Speaking to EA Games label President Frank Gibeau and Dead Space executive producer Glenn Schoefield, here are the highlights:
Schoefield confirmed that EA is "talking to movie studios right now" about the prospects of the game becoming a feature film. It should be noted that there's an animated film, Dead Space: Downfall, already slated for release.
The producer added that EA and a publishing partner are "talking about Dead Space novels as well as a line of toys".
Finally, he also mentioned that a Dead Space sequel was already in the works. Judging by the early fan response to the game, this is good news.
