After persistent leaks and rumours over the last few weeks, yesterday EA officially unveiled the Dead Space remake in development at EA Motive- and understandably, there’s plenty of excitement surrounding the game. Dead Space is a beloved franchise, of course, and people have been hoping for it to be revived for years at this point.

And the people who created Dead Space, it seems, are just as excited. Glen Schofield, who co-created the sci-fi survival horror series and was director on the first game, took to Twitter following the recent announcement to share his excitement about it, saying that he’s looking forward to seeing what EA Motive does with the game.

EA Motive responded promptly afterward, noting, “You paved the way for us, Glen.” And of course, Schofield, currently at Striking Distance Studios, is working on his own sci-fi survival horror Dead Space-inspired game, The Callisto Protocoland EA Motive (like most of us) is excited to see how that shapes up as well. Nice to see that mutual respect there.

Both Dead Space and The Callisto Protocol are in the works for PS5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC. The Callisto Protocol has a 2022 launch window, but Dead Space doesn’t yet have a release timeframe. EA has confirmed that the horror game won’t have any microtransactions, and won’t have any load times thanks to the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S’ hardware.
