Dead Space fans will have to wait a while until they get any news on EA Motive’s highly anticipated remake of Visceral Games’ original survival horror hit.
In a recent update posted to r/DeadSpace by community manager CM_Ythisens, EA Motive suggested that it will not be sharing any news about the game until next year. The reason for this is that the Dead Space remake is in a much earlier phase of development than expected; CM_Ythisens has hinted that the designs shared thus far are very early and will likely change due to all of the feedback that the developer has been receiving from the Dead Space community.
Everything we showed was a work in progress which means that we’ll be working on things like Isaac’s suit, the aesthetic and ambiance of the Ishimura. We’re doing work to ensure it has the right level of wear and tear. For example, here is an early work in progress clip showing some of the ways that the team is going to be giving that worn look to the Ishimura.
We’re going to be heads down now working on the game, taking some time to review all the thoughts, theories, and suggestions you’ve all shared with us. We look forward to showing you how you’ve helped shape the game next year when we’re further in development!
Announced by EA in July, EA Motive’s Dead Space remake is being completely rebuilt from the ground up for next-generation consoles and PC using the Frostbite game engine. The game is expected to play very similar to the original but with superior visuals and audio, as partially indicated by the early in-editor footage.
