Targetted at next-gen consoles, the new Dead Space remake will elevate the entire game’s experience with better graphics and higher frame rates. Though EA says the new Dead Space game will simply be a remake instead of a continuation or sequel, it has also highlighted that the game will receive “improved story, characters, [and] gameplay mechanics.” With those in mind, the game will be created exclusively for the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X and PC.
“The Dead Space franchise made a huge impact on the survival horror genre when it was released 12 years ago, and I came to Motive as a fan first to specifically work on this game,” said Phillippe Ducharme, the original game’s senior producer. “We have a passionate team at Motive who are approaching this remake as a love letter to the franchise. Going back to the original and having the opportunity to do so on next-gen consoles excited everyone on the team. As we look to modernize the game, we’ve reached out to dedicated fans and invited them to provide us with feedback since the early stages of production to deliver the Dead Space game they want and for new players to enjoy as well.”
There’s currently no official release date yet for the game, so fans of the franchise should stay tuned for more updates to come.
