Dead Space Remake Coming From Motive Studios, Gets Creepy Teaser Trailer
The rumors of a Dead Space remake have proven to be true. Electronic Arts announced the Dead Space remake during the latest EA Play 2021 event. The game is being developed by Motive Studios, which most recently shipped Star Was: Squadrons and previously worked on Star Wars Battlefront 2.
It will release for PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X|S. It will not release on last-gen systems, like the PS4 or Xbox One.
Outside of the game's creepy (if short) teaser trailer and announced platforms, there's not much to go on. EA didn't share too many details about the Dead Space remake during EA Play, though they did speak to IGN in a bit more depth.
Per IGN's Jonathon Dornbush, "Dead Space will be rebuilt from the ground up in the Frostbite engine, with the developers looking to take advantage of the advanced SSDs, 3D audio, and more new tech of the latest console generation ..."
Additionally, Dornbush spoke with Philippe Ducharme, senior producer on the game, about a myriad of topics, from the lack of load screens to keeping in line with the original's design aesthetic.
Rumors of a Dead Space remake have swirled for a few weeks, though fans have certainly clamored for its return for much longer than that.
Dead Space originally launched in 2008 for PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360. It was followed by two sequels, Dead Space 2 in 2011 and Dead Space 3 in 2013, on those same platforms. There have been three spinoffs to date.
