It looks like EA Motive’s upcoming Dead Space remake is aiming to release in the later part of 2022, according to new reports.
GamesBeat’s Jeff Grubb is citing “sources familiar with development” for the purported launch window. However, a statement from Electronic Arts indicates the publisher isn’t quite ready to commit to a firm promise just yet. “We haven’t shared a release date for the game, and we don’t have any comment based on the current rumor and speculation. But we’re glad people are excited for the game!”
According to Grubb’s report, EA is internally expecting the game to launch during its 2023 fiscal year. This means it could come out any time between April 2022 and March the following year. That being said, a Halloween launch for the Dead Space remake is the obvious choice thematically and a marketing perspective.
Apparently, EA will be showing off more of the upcoming remake before the end of 2021. Whether that will be at something as soon as Gamescom later this month or The Game Awards this December is presently unknown. Whether we’ll get a release date then is equally anyone’s guess.
The Dead Space remake was formally announced last month following rumours laid down by the aforementioned Grubb, which lends a lot of credence to these reports. The remake intends to rebuild the game from the ground up and promises an “improved story” amongst its changes. Development is being headed up by former Assassin’s Creed Valhalla director Eric Baptizat.
Hopefully we’ll hear more very soon. Whenever it does launch, the Dead Space remake will release on Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5 and PC.
