Dead Space was last-generations breakout horror franchise. The Visceral Games developed and EA published Survival-Horror franchise began in 2008 and garnered a large fan base as other survival-horror franchises put more of a focus on action over horror.

Dead Space launched Fall 2008 to strong reviews and commercial success. The game starred Isaac Clarke, an engineer sent on a routine mission to repair the USG Ishimura.

The game has since spawned two sequels and a spin-off.
