According to rumors that appeared on the network, the development of the restart of Dead Space was led by a veteran of the Ubisoft company Eric Baptist. He led the creation of the role-playing game Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, and in April 2021 he moved to the EA Motive studio, in the depths of which, according to insiders, the return of Dead Space is being prepared. Information about the new place of work of Baptizat appeared on the network only recently.
As VentureBeat journalist Jeff Grubb revealed last week, the new Dead Space will be both a reboot of the franchise and a remake of the very first installment in the series. Studio EA Motive is allegedly inspired by Capcom’s Resident Evil 2 remake.
According to preliminary data, the announcement of the Dead Space remake should take place as part of the EA Play Live online presentation, which is scheduled to air on July 22, 2021.
