Dead Space and Battlefield Hardline developer Visceral Games' VP and general manager of 15 years, Steve Papoutsis, is no longer at EA.
Third party behemoth EA has discounted dozens of games and game add-ons this week on Xbox Live.
Dead Space 2's multiplayer mode is getting an expansion, and it's coming for free.
The live action Dead Space movie still exists and will happen, its director has insisted.
Dead Space developer Visceral will soon begin work on a "bold new IP" - a move that suggests either Dead Space and Dante's Inferno are being put on hold, or that a second, complimentary team is being made.
The Dead Space 2 Severed DLC has been released on Xbox Live Marketplace and costs 560 Microsoft Points (£4.80 / €6.72).
Sales of Dead Space 2 have been double those of the original, but it won't be until the release of Dead Space 3 that the series will really take off, EA said.
EA has announced Dead Space 2: Severed, a "digital download pack" that extends the Dead Space 2 story with two standalone chapters in the single-player game.
It sees the return of Gabe Weller and Lexine Murdock, the two main characters from 2009 prequel Dead Space: Extraction. The Dead Space 2 Limited Edition for PS3 includes Dead Space: Extraction, which supports the Move controller.
Weller and Lexine's story runs parallel to Isaac's in Dead Space 2. Players assume the role of Gabe Weller, who as a Sprawl Security Guard fights against Necromorphs.
