Electronic Arts Is Considering Remaking The Other Two Dead Space Games

After rethinking the first part, a survey suggests that Electronic Arts should do the same for the second and third parts of Dead Space.


It’s been just under a month since the remake of Dead Space, created by the now defunct Visceral Games and reimagined by Electronic Arts’ Motive studio, was released for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, and PC. Since then, Glen Schofield, the director of the original 2008 game, has been at the helm of Striking Distance Studios, overseeing the post-release content expansion of the somewhat disappointing The Callisto Protocol, released late last year. However, he hasn’t forgotten his previous game, so he has been honest in his congratulations to Electronic Arts and Motive on Twitter:

“To all of you who worked on the original, thank you for contributing to an amazing game. It has withstood the test of time. And to Motive, thank you for your care in remaking the game faithfully. Congratulations,” wrote Schofield. In terms of sales, we don’t know how Dead Space Remake has performed so far, but it topped the UK retail sales after its release, although it fell short of The Callisto Protocol (but it should be added that that was a cross-gen game, whereas Isaac Clarke’s story was not).

On Twitter, Dillon Rogers revealed that Electronic Arts had sent him a survey, and the wording was pretty much to the point: “How interested would you be in a similar remake of Dead Space 2/3 (2011/2013)? Not at all, A little, Somewhat, Very, Extremely.” The Andrew Wilson-led company is also taking into account the players’ interest because these aren’t games where they can force the live service model and the plethora of microtransactions and not spend on development if they don’t see enough interest.

However, we also have to ask, if the first part has already been rethought, wouldn’t it be more appropriate to make a NEW Dead Space? Of course, Motive is working on the Iron Man game now, so they are out of the running as a potential developer…
