It’s been nearly a decade since Visceral Games released its last installment of Dead Space, but the sci-fi survival horror franchise could be back sooner than expected. This is based on ongoing comments made by GamesBeat journalist Jeff Grubb, who mentioned during a video stream on Friday that EA would be announcing the revival of “an established IP” during its upcoming Play Live showcase, which is slated for July 22. While such a claim would normally invite various possibilities, Grubb has added a level of specificity by teasing that “we’re going to see it…if we’re not dead first.” Dead Space 4 was reportedly canceled by EA in 2013 due to poor sales of the third installment.

Grubb previously stated that EA’s Motive studio was working on “an established IP” revival. “I think you’ll be happy,” he said. On Tuesday, he teased: “we’re going to see it… if we’re not dead first.” Electronic Arts’ Motive underwent a rebrand following the release of Star Wars: Squadrons last year, which was its first fully-developed title since the company was formed in 2015. It previously collaborated on DICE’s Battlefront 2.
