The rumours were true. Dead Space is back. Announced today during EA’s EA Play Live 2021 event, Dead Space is in development at EA’s Motive Studios! While EA didn’t elaborate on what to expect, the game is indeed a remake of the 2008 original using the Frostbite engine.
While EA didn’t reveal much more other than platforms, the game will feature “an improved story, characters, gameplay mechanics and more”.
“The Dead Space franchise 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.”
The game is currently slated for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series and PC. No release date as of yet.
