The highly-anticipated remake of Dead Space will reportedly launch in late 2022.
According to Jeff Grubb over at VentureBeatDead Space is currently slated to launch in 2022, if development proceeds accordingly. Citing sources close to the project, Grubb says that publisher Electronic Arts seemingly plans on releasing Dead Space within its 2023 fiscal year. Grubb does state that given the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the unknown variables which often crop up during game development, the release window may be adjusted.
Publisher EA Games has yet to provide a solid release date. When contacted by Grubb, EA responded by saying, "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!"
Grubb also confirms that more information on Dead Space will be revealed later in 2021, suggesting the release of another trailer. Currently, the only footage of the remake is a brief teaser released during the EA Play Live event in July. The teaser clearly depicts the destroyed corridors of the ISS Ishimura, an aggressive necromorph and Isaac Clarke, the franchise's protagonist, repairing his armor.
While many fans are excited to see a remake of the original Dead Space, its announcement did not surprise folks who keep their ears close to the grapevine. Grubb himself set things in motion when he mentioned that EA was working on a sequel to an established franchise, hinting that "we're going to see it... if we're not dead first." Further fuel was added to the fire when the official Dead Space YouTube channel changed its display picture after eight years of dormancy.
Little else is currently known about Dead Space, but EA Games confirmed that the game will be available on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X and PC.
