Dead Space creator Michael Condrey has moved to a new studio, with a debut project already in development

Take-Two Interactive’s publishing label 2K Games has confirmed the ex-Visceral Games boss’s appointment as president of a new, unnamed studio in Silicon Valley, citing Condrey’s “unparalleled creative, production, and leadership accolades” and other obligatory compliments that don’t mean much if these are used to develop a new sci-fi survival horror game like Dead Space, but not actually Dead Space because EA owns the IP.

Condrey’s previous credits also include co-founding Call of Duty franchise drone studio Sledgehammer Games, responsible for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, and Call of Duty: WWII, which obviously aren’t as important as Dead Space.

According to the press stuff, Condrey’s been hired to “build and lead a new development team to work on an unannounced project” that could be a new sci-fi survival horror game – Breathless Void, maybe, or Expired Vacuum – until we know otherwise and it doesn’t even matter.
