Dead Space was a big survival horror video game hit, and after three mainline installments, EA shelved the IP. It’s been dormant for years, but now EA has decided to give it another chance. Developers EA Motive is working on this reboot project, and so far from what was showcased, fans are ecstatic. Unfortunately, we didn’t get a ton of details unveiled so far. Instead, the development is still early on into the project, and we only had one big Livestream event. Now, we can expect radio silence for at least the rest of this year.
Development is going on for the game, and the Livestream gave a few tiny little looks into the project. For instance, we know a new focus on dismemberment when you battle against the necromorphs. Likewise, we know that the protagonist Isaac Clarke will be fully voiced. So that’s the start of what we can expect with this upcoming reboot. But again, details are going to be scarce for a good while. This comes from Cayden House, the community manager from the Dead Space remake team. Through the Dead Space subreddit, the community manager noted that the team is reading through all the feedback so far.
While EA Motive is sifting through the different feedback and expectations for Dead Space, it will not lead to any notable updates. However, Cayden revealed that EA Motive would be looking forward to showcasing more of the game next year. Of course, this will be after EA Motive is further into the development of Dead Space, but we don’t know when the game will get picked back up for the general public next year.
It could very well be a good way off as the game is only slated for the end of 2022. As a result, there’s a chance we might see this game get pushed back into 2023, but that will be dependent on the development progress goes. When this title does get ready for its big release, it should be available on PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X/S platforms. But, of course, we’re hopeful those console platforms are a bit easier to come by when the end of 2022 gets here.
