'Dead Space' Reboot Is A 'Resident Evil 2' Style Remake Of Original Game

It's been rumoured for a while now that EA is planning to show off a revival of a fan-favourite series at an EA Play event later this month, and it's looking increasingly likely that said revival is a reboot of Dead Space.


According to a new report from GamesBeat, EA Motive (the studio behind last year's wonderful Star Wars: Squadrons) is working on the Dead Space remake. Better yet, this remake is said to be a reimagining of the first game in the series, with new content and gameplay features. The report likens the project to Capcom's recent Resident Evil remakes, which sounds super promising to us.

Take a look at our tribute to Dead Space 2 to see why we're so excited that it's coming back:



Dead Space was a celebrated franchise back in the PlayStation 3/Xbox 360 days. The series' original developer Visceral released two incredible titles that are still regarded by many as among the best horror games today. Dead Space 3 was, unfortunately, not very good. In its infinite wisdom, EA then decided single-player horror just didn't make enough money, and put the series to bed. Visceral was shut down just a few years later.

This latest report tracks with what we've already heard from Eurogamer and Gematsu. The latter claimed to have heard from its own sources last month that the project Motive is working on is Dead Space, and that it is indeed a "complete reboot" rather than a sequel to Dead Space 3.

EA is expected to announced the Dead Space reboot - as well as a bunch of other games including Battlefield 2042 - on July 22. That means we don't have very long to wait at all, but do keep you expectations in check until we know for sure that this mystery title is what everyone is saying it is.
