The sci-fi/survival horror series enjoyed its fair share of acclaim back in the PlayStation 3/Xbox 360 days. Developer Visceral managed to deliver two brilliantly tense and pants-wettingly frightening single-player adventures that are still regarded as among the best horror games today.
Take a look at Dead Space 2 in all its gory glory below!
As you're probably all-too aware, an underwhelming third entry was released in 2013, and that was the end of Dead Space as we knew it. EA, who decided single-player horror didn't make enough money, opted to put the series on ice. Visceral was shut down just a few years later, but not before being given the chance to put their time and energy into one of the many EA Star Wars games that would never see the light of day.
But there is hope! According to multiple sources, including Eurogamer and Games Beat writer Jeff Grubb, EA gearing up to announce the revival of an "established IP" that should make a lot of fans very happy. This mystery reboot is being developed by EA Motive, who did excellent work on last year's Star Wars: Squadrons. I was personally hoping/assuming it would be Titanfall 3, but the universe clearly has other ideas.
It's important to note that neither Eurogamer nor Grubb specifically mentioned Dead Space, with Grubb seemingly to actively dismiss speculation of a survival horror revival in a recent tweet. However, Gematsu claims to have heard from its own sources that the project Motive is working on is Dead Space, and that it'll be a complete reboot rather than a continuation of the existing trilogy.
EA is expected to show off this mystery title - as well as a bunch of other games including Battlefield 2042 - on July 22. We won't have long to wait then, but as always, keep your expectations in check.
