During yesterday’s EA Play event, developers announced that the Dead Space franchise will be making a comeback thanks to Motive. The forthcoming game is, by all reports, a remake of the original and is currently in development to “reestablish the franchise as a core single-player experience”. Motive is rebooting the series from the ground up for Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 5, and PC using EA’s Frostbyte Engine. It is unknown if the upcoming version will be compatible with Xbox One or PlayStation 4. Other than that, little else is known including when we might expect its release.
Originally developed by Visceral Games, the series has not had a new entry since 2013’s Dead Space 3. Visceral Games closed in 2017 thus ending most players’ hopes that the series would return. That is, until yesterday.
We’ll keep an eye out for further news in the coming weeks. In the meantime, learn more on the Dead Space official site.

Clarke’s repair mission is transformed to one of survival as he fights to save himself and return the artifact to the planet at any cost.
