Dead Space is Reportedly Targeting a Late 2022 Release For PlayStation 5

According to reports, the upcoming Dead Space remake in development at EA Motive, could be aiming for a late 2022 release window, potentially sometime around the scary season that is Halloween.

Based upon “sources familiar with development” on Dead Space, GameBeat's Jeff Grubb apparently has the scoop, although EA isn't yet in a position to commit to a firm release window, releasing a statement regarding Grubb's claims.

“We haven’t shared a release date for the game, and we don’t have any comment based on the current rumour and speculation,” said EA. “But we’re glad people are excited for the game!” Rumours abound that EA could be planning to show more of the game later this year, potentially at either Gamescom this month or The Game Awards in December.

Grubb reckons that EA's internal expectations for Dead Space's release slot somewhere into the company's fiscal year 2021, putting it between April 2022 and March 2023. However, given how little we've seen of the game thus far, a later release in 2022, sometime around the time of pumpkins and such, would make sense.

Announced during EA Play Live in July, Motive's remake of Dead Space promises to restore certain cut content, as well as building the game from the ground up with an improved story, and other changes. The Dead Space remake is set for release on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.

  • Yes, folks are excited! So don't F&*% this up, although, that is typically EA's track record! And furthermore, shove a release date up the proverbial arse, just give the date when it is literally complete!
  • Guessing a halloween type date…. Can see this getting pushed back to jan/feb 2023 release when quiet period of any big releases to ensure maximum sales
  • Was really hoping they were working on something new and not a remaster or remake.
  • I hope they do the other 2 as well.
  • Nice, that would not be a super long wait
  • So it will release in a broken state May 2023.
  • May 2023 sounds good, some players might even have a ps5 by then. Maybe.
  • Game should be made pretty quick like 70% of the hard is over
  • @railroberto, Haha you really have no idea what you're talking about
  • I just scored the original PS3 trilogy complete in like new condition, as I have never played this series before.

    Dive in now, or wait for this newer release? (I am fortunate to have both a PS3 and PS5, BTW)
