June 2, 2012Written by Zak Islam

Electronic Arts had already confirmed a new Dead Space installment in the publisher’s fiscal earnings call, but they didn’t reveal if it was Dead Space 3 or not. Now, though, they’ve finally confirmed the game’s existence, as well as releasing the survival horror shooter’s first screenshot.

Speaking to IGN, the publisher said Dead Space 3 will be shown during their E3 press conference on Monday (1 PM PDT). Both the first details and debut footage will be showcased.

We’re excited to unveil Dead Space 3 to the world at the EA press conference next week.

Dead Space 3‘s first batch of screenshots were recently leaked, with one depicting protagonist Isaac Clarke dual-wielding a weapon. EA’s also released the first official image of Visceral’s third installment, below, which gives us a clearer look into the newly-introduced component. The assault rifle seems to be equipped with a grenade launcher, accompanied by the amount of ammo of each weapon.
