In the course of yesterday, we heard a rumor that Electronic Arts was preparing to announce the return of the Dead Space revival. In the meantime, the whole thing has been confirmed by other major sources.
According to Gamesbeat editor and industry insider Jeff Grubb, we are dealing with a new Dead Space revival project that is being created by the Star Wars: Squadrons makers at EA Motive.
While the studio or those responsible at Electronic Arts have not yet wanted to comment on the rumors, these are currently confirmed by other sources. For example, the editors at Eurogamer pointed out that they too learned that Electronic Arts will bring back the Dead Space brand and make the corresponding announcement at the EA Play 2021 event next month.
The information is underpinned by Gematsu magazine, which, according to its own information, would like to know about the new Dead Space title independently of Eurogamer.
Gematsu also reports that the title is actually created by the developers of EA Motive and is more like “a revival of the series.” However, according to the magazine, we shouldn’t expect a classic successor.
To what extent the information provided by Grubb, Eurogamer or Gematsu correspond to the facts, we may find out during the EA Play 2021 event, which will take place on July 22, 2021.
