New Dead Space, Need For Speed due by March 2013

Plus, EA promises more Plants vs Zombies.

New entries in both the Dead Space and Need For Speed franchises will be on shelves by March 2013, publisher EA has confirmed.

Both were referenced during an earnings call today as among the company's blockbuster releases for the coming 12 months, though no specific details were announced.

Dead Space 3 is rumoured to take place, in part at least, on a frozen planet, whereas a retailer listing for Need For Speed: Most Wanted 2 recently popped up.

Elsewhere during the call, EA's Peter Moore also announced that "in the months ahead you can count on new iterations of PopCap franchises like Bejeweled and Plants vs Zombies".
