EA has enjoyed a good year so far, riding off the success of Mass Effect Legendary Edition. Despite releasing a month ago, many are still deep into the game, and it seems the wave of nostalgia may not be stopping there, as it's rumoured the company will be reviving another IP next month - which many are hoping is Dead Space.
July 22 marks the return of EA Play Live - the company's showcase of its upcoming games and projects. During this presentation, the company is said to be announcing an "established IP” revival, according to a recent video from industry insider Jeff Grubb. He referenced his previous rumour that EA’s Motive Studio is working on an IP revival, and his comments may possibly allude to it being Dead Space related.
“I think you’ll be happy. We’re going to see it… if we’re not dead first.”
Whether this comes to fruition remains to be seen. EA seems to slowly be bringing back many of its series' from the dead. Mass Effect, Dragon Age, and even Skate are seeing new entries on the horizon.
Many fans on Twitter and other social media platforms are hoping this is a Dead Space related project. Maybe a remastered trilogy in the same vein as Mass Effect Legendary Edition, or something new entirely.
It's been eight years since the last Dead Space entry, and while many of the team have moved on to work on The Callisto Protocol, we would love to see the official series make a return. We'll see what happens!
Do you think we could be seeing Dead Space next month? Or do you have any other thoughts to what the IP may be? Drop us a comment and let us know.
