VentureBeat/GamesBeat journalist Jeff Grubb has confirmed recent reports regarding EA Motive and its development of a new Dead Space game. According to Grubb, the new Dead Space game is a “full-fledged remake” that can be compared to Capcom’s Resident Evil 2, in that it’ll likely feature modern visuals and new gameplay mechanics inspired by other entries in the franchise while remaining faithful to the original game. EA Motive’s upcoming Dead Space title will reboot the franchise.
EA has likely also warmed back up to the idea of producing single-player adventures after the success of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. The publisher has made statements in the recent past about shifting its focus to live-service games. And that was part of a deliberate decision to invest less in single-player experiences following poor results for Mirror’s Edge Catalyst.
