Dead Space 3 Summary
A total of $10.5 million has been carved up between five different charities in the wake of the Humble Bundle sale that included some of EA's biggest PC games, of which they kept none of the revenue.
Peter Moore tweeted he's "so proud of Team EA" for raising the $10.5m from the charity campaign, with $1.65m of that going to the American Cancer Society.
Dead Space dev Visceral Games has already been involved in some Battlefield development as they helped out DICE with Battlefield 3 DLC. Now they might be tackling something far more substantial.
This is the belief held by Wedbush Morgan analyst Michael Pachter, who initially said it was Criterion Games that was getting in on the military series. This would suggest an annual launch.
The Humble Origin Bundle continues to raise gobs of cash for charity, as sales have topped $9M and are headed to $10M. The Bundle includes Dead Space, Crysis 2 Maximum Edition, Mirror's Edge, Dead Space 3, Medal of Honor, and Burnout Paradise: The Ultimate Box, with Battlefield 3, The Sims 3 with two Starter Pack add-ons, Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3 - Uprising and Populous for donating more than the average price (currently just under $5 USD.)
Humble Bundle has announced that EA's Humble Origin Bundle is their greatest performer to-date, with over 1.25 million bundles sold raising "over $6 million" in sales. All proceeds go to various charities.
Nine days are left for the Humble Origin Bundle, which continues to rocket in sales. The last big money draw was the Humble Indie Bundle V back in June, raising $5.1m.
