This is perhaps one of the most anticipated games to come from Electronic Arts: the American publisher has finally dated the release day for the remake of dead spacethe cult survival-horror of 2008. Announced a little less than a year ago during an EA Play event, this project from the Motive Studios teams was initially expected for the end of 2022. Before a new delay which pushed back its release horizon to the beginning of 2023.
A concrete date was finally announced today in a press release from Electronic Arts.
Dead Space Remake will arrive in January 2023
It is therefore on January 27, 2023 that Dead Space Remake will make its way to next-gen consoles and PC. After several months of waiting and teasing from its developers, the game confirms its arrival on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S and PC early next year… For now. A last minute delay would not be surprising for a triple-A of this stature. There is no doubt that Electronic Arts wants to avoid any missteps with this highly hyped release by the fans.
This remake of dead space also marks a first for its publisher in the next-gen game market. The USG Ishimura will open its doors exclusively to owners of new generation consoles, and will therefore be deprived of any crossgen release… Its technique will therefore be the focus of all attention.
It must be said that for many players, the story of dead space left a bittersweet taste in the mouth. After two excellent first opuses released in 2008 and 2011 respectively, the license was lost with a third episode that was resolutely more focused on action. An artistic choice to the detriment of the game’s sales which led its publisher to put Isaac and his blaster in the closet.
So many reasons that generated the crazy expectations behind this new remake. A comeback that will show a little more next fall. More specifically, it is on the occasion of Halloween that a new trailer will be unveiled to the public, a period that suits the game well.
