Following rumors that EA will resurrect one of its old IPs and reveal it at the EA Play Live event on July 22, Gematsu has reported that the mystery franchise will be Dead Space. Based on Gematsu, the game will be developed by Motive Studio, the company that has exclusively developed Star Wars games in the past, including Star Wars Battlefront 2 and Star Wars: The Squad.
Dead Space has been a hit horror movie since its last appearance, Dead Space 3, released in 2013. The franchise’s first two entries focus on a gloomy, horrifying atmosphere with piles of horrifying corpses. However, the third installment was considered a black sheep by fans because of the inclusion of co-op, which many assumed involved EA involvement at the time. Dead Space’s original developer, Visceral Games, retired in 2017.
God, I hope there’s a new Dead Space coming out.
Love that franchise.
