Dead Space Revival Being Developed by EA Motive Say Multiple Sources
According to multiple sources, a potential Dead Space revival is on the way. Rumor has it that Motive, a Canadian studio owned by Electronic Arts, is developing a new title which will be a reimagining of the series, as opposed to a direct sequel. Motive is best known for the fun and addictive Star Wars: Squadrons, which released in October of last year.
The news of a revival first dropped via VentureBeat writer Jeff Grubb during the most recent GamesBeat Decides podcast, which was later picked up by VGC. Eurogamer also backed up these claims in a separate article and said that this info, “…tallies with information we’ve also heard.”
More recently, the website Gematsu said that they have corroborated the report and claimed that the “established IP” is Dead Space. Electronic Arts is scheduled to announce the Dead Space revival during its EA Play Live digital event on July 22, 2021.
The last mainline entry in the series was Dead Space 3, released in 2013 by Visceral Games, a studio that was also owned by Electronic Arts, and which closed its doors in October 2017. Hopefully, we’ll get something specials after waiting this long for another title in the acclaimed action-horror franchise. We’ll keep you posted on any new developments regarding the revival as they occur.
