Before working on Battlefield Hardline, Visceral Games were known as the developer who brought the world Dead Space. It's quite a tonal shift for the company moving franchises, so here's hoping they can pull off the change.
So, Dead Space is going to make an appearance in Battlefield Hardline. In this video about character design, at the 00:33 mark you can see a criminal playing the original Dead Space. Check it out.
Does this mean Hardline takes place in the real world if Dead Space exists? Can I drive a mobile couch that clears buildings in real life?
Now, how many people are hoping for Visceral to go back to their roots of a survival horror based Dead Space? Oh. It's not just me then.
Thanks to VG247 for pointing this out!
