According continued commenting, "I think we're going to take it one step at a time. The development team and I would LOVE to make lots, lots and lots of more Dead Space but we're only going to do it if people want it and if it makes sense. We do not want to saturate the series and reach a time when people do not care or are not interested in what we are doing. We are very protective of Dead Space and want to make something out of Dead Space excellent."
