According to what reported by Jeff Grubb on Venture Beat, EA Motive would be working on the remake of the first Dead Space and would take as a model what Capcom did with the remake of Resident Evil 2. So the new game will have the original as a base, but will have completely redone graphics and will incorporate some of the mechanics of the other chapters of the franchise.
Speaking of Capcom, it is thanks to the Resident Evil remake operation that the remake of Dead Space has become possible. The success of the redone chapters, which expanded the user base of the Japanese franchise, convinced EA to try the same path with his, left in the cold for too long.
Another reason for the return of Dead Space, an essentially single player game, would have been the success of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, which has amply repaid the investment made despite having no elements. live service. EA had previously said it wanted to abandon single-player only games, due to failures such as Mirror’s Edge Catalyst. Now it seems to have partially backed off and it seems that it wants to bring the two economic models together, at least with some selected titles.
