EA is hoping that Dead Space 2 will be the one which will help the genre survive and revive.
In an interview to one of the gaming site Steve Papoutsis gives out the reason for decline in popuarity of the genre saying that nowadays survival horror game are very difficult to make.
"It's very difficult to make survival horror games, there's so much that has to go into each moment and planning out each thing, understanding that at any moment a player may not even see what you want them to see, there is a lot of work that goes into that".
He further added that "I think it would be awesome to see more games like Dead Space out there, there would be stuff for us to learn from and keep the genre going,"
"I think there are a lot of people that enjoy it and it would be great to see that so I hope that happens."
Capcom has revealed that Zombrex Dead Rising Sun, a film inspired by the Dead Rising video game universe, will be distributed digitally free of charge, both in Europe and North America this summer.
This film was written and directed by Capcom global research and development head, Keiji Inafune. The story follows two siblings who try to escape from an unfortunate zombie outbreak that has hit Japan. So I think the zombie horror pure cheese, references in almost every other zombie movie ever made.
