It is expected at the turn by the fans… Who might have to wait a little longer: the remake/reboot of dead spacedeveloped by Motive and published by Electronic Arts, may not be released before the beginning of 2023. In any case, this is what the GamesBeat site and, you guessed it, the insider and journalist Jeff Grubb , which we no longer need to cite the feats of arms, which still has a major revelation about the industry to reveal.
Dead Space would move from 2022 to 2023
Grubb argues that the release of this new dead space, planned for the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S and PC consoles, was initially expected for this end of the year, more precisely around October, by the internal teams of Electronic Arts. But presumably, these plans would have been turned upside down by the development team for the sake of precaution as to the final state of the game. Motive would like to take advantage of these additional months of development to refine the title as much as possible and ensure a reception favorable review.
It must be said that Electronic Arts does not really have the right to make mistakes with this new project. dead space. The horror and sci-fi franchise was among the American publisher’s most celebrated during the PS3 and 360 generation, its first two titles dead space and Dead Space 2 having been widely acclaimed when they were released in 2008 and 2011 respectively.
The third episode dead space 3 already marked a turning point at EA, which no longer saw so much grace in the model of the single-player video game, and signaled its pivot towards the game-service. It was this model that marked the titles published by EA during the previous generation of consoles, until (surprisingly) the success of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order end up convincing the publisher of the lucrative potential of so-called “classic” solo games.
The journalist also claims that, despite this significant delay, the title seems to be on the right track and “ would impress » Electronic Arts internal teams. This new reinterpretation of the 2008 game would aim to be closer to that of the Resident Evil 2 from 2016 by Capcom, another remake that had been widely praised by both the press and fans of the horror franchise.
