Dead Space is quite the beloved horror title. However, after only having three mainline installments, the IP was eventually put on ice. Nevertheless, fans have expressed their interest in the franchise despite the IP being dormant for so many years. In fact, according to the EA CEO, Dead Space was one of the most demanded video game franchises. Fortunately, fans will eventually get a remake, but it’s a way out right now.
EA’s CEO Andrew Wilson recently spoke with investors during an earnings call. The conversation allowed Andrew Wilson to answer questions and expand on their goals going forward. During the call, Andrew Wilson was asked about Dead Space’s remake. While we didn’t get any new details, the CEO noted that Dead Space was one of the most demanded video games they were seeing from fans. Apparently, the only IP that topped Dead Space was Skate.
Again, there wasn’t anything to expand just yet on the upcoming remake for Dead Space. Instead, Andrew Wilson said that both veterans and newcomers have requested this game. Currently, the game is being developed by EA Motive, but the EA CEO noted that it’s a bit way out. So we might have to wait a bit longer before we get any extensive new details or teasers for this upcoming project. That’s to be expected as we only just received a teaser announcement confirming a remake is being developed.
While we don’t know a ton about this upcoming Dead Space remake, it was confirmed that EA Motive is looking at the entire franchise. Therefore, the remake might be centered around the first game. Still, we could see some features and elements from the other installments incorporated into the video game remake. Currently, fans are anticipating its release along with the original creator behind Dead Space, Glen Schofield.
