EA closed out its EA Play Live event by officially confirming the rumour that a fully-fledged Dead Space remake is in development by EA Motive (Star Wars Squadrons/Battlefront 2).
This is the original Dead Space built from the ground up exclusively for PS5, Xbox Series X|S and PC. The game will have an improved story, characters and gameplay mechanics.
We don’t know when the game will release but given only a teaser trailer was shown and it is a full remake it’s safe to that it’s at least 12-18 months away.
“The Dead Spacefranchise made a huge impact on the survival horror genre when it was released 12 years ago, and I came to Motive as a fan first to specifically work on this game,” said Phillippe Ducharme, Senior Producer of Dead Space.
“We have a passionate team at Motive who are approaching this remake as a love letter to the franchise. Going back to the original and having the opportunity to do so on next-gen consoles excited everyone on the team. As we look to modernize the game, we’ve reached out to dedicated fans and invited them to provide us with feedback since the early stages of production to deliver the Dead Space game they want and for new players to enjoy as well.”D
