Dead Space 4 canceled? Was the series ruined by changes to Dead Space 3?

Videogamer.com has released an incendiary report indicating that Dead Space 4 has been canceled and the series ended due to the failure of Dead Space 3 to meet EA’s sales expectations. Quoting a “source familiar with the unannounced project”, the report goes on to state that developers Visceral Games were given a directive from EA during the development of Dead Space 3 to tone down the horror aspect of the game and make it more action-oriented in an effort to “(…)make the game feel more like BioWare’s Mass Effect.”

Will there be a future for the Dead Space franchise, and if so, will it be recognizable to those familiar with its origin as a horror title?
