We've got a date! EA has confirmed today via a press release that the highly-anticipated Dead Space remake will be launching on January 27th, 2023, and it'll be a next-gen only release on consoles, meaning no Xbox One version.
The press release confirms that the game is "being rebuilt from the ground up leveraging the Frostbite game engine," and its visuals "have been carefully reimagined to evoke a new level of immersion and quality."
Here's what the game's senior producer had to say about the announcement:
“Developing this remake has been a lot of fun for us at Motive, as we’re true fans of the franchise and want to treat it with the respect it deserves. It’s been equally exciting to see players' reactions as we’re taking them on this development journey with us."
“We’re making great progress on our road to hitting Alpha and we’re happy to announce that the game will be launching in January next year. We can’t wait for players, both old and new, to see how we've elevated the original experience in the remake to be just as impactful for this generation.”
The Dead Space team also released a series of development videos today on the game's YouTube channel showcasing the behind-the-scenes process of creating immersive environments, amplifying visual effects, elevating character models and refining lighting effects. You can check them all out below, or you can head over to YouTube and watch the much longer and more in-depth 90 minute livestream that the team hosted earlier today.
