A new Dead Space remake livestream has been confirmed by developer Motive and publisher EA which will happen on May 12th. The stream is titled “Crafting the Tension” and will seemingly focus on the title’s revamped art design.
The remake is currently being developed at EA’s Motive studio which has previously worked on titles such as Star Wars: Squadrons and Star Wars Battlefront II.
EA announced the Dead Space remake in July 2021 which has been tasked to EA’s Montreal-based studio Motive. Earlier this year we were shown 20 minutes of footage of the in-development title where EA also confirmed a 2023 release window.
“The team at Motive will show early footage into how they’re leveraging the Frostbite engine, Gen 5 hardware and PCs to visually evolve and remake the original Dead Space’s environments, characters, VFX, lighting, and more from the ground up to create a new level of immersion and quality for today’s modern audiences.”
Who turned out the lights?

We also know that the Dead Space remake will have a new flesh-carving system that will not only add so much more gore and grit to the already incredibly gory title but it will also be used practically against enemies.
“The body destruction technology that we’re developing, that is allowing us to really remove the flesh off of the bones of the enemy, and to give you a good sense not only of gore … but also of how much damage am I doing to the opponent. Is my weapon actually useful against this one? How close is it to dying? That’s something that to me is really interesting.”
The game is currently being headed by Roman Campos-Oriola (Creative Director) and Eric Baptizat (Assassin’s Creed Valhalla game director) and is being developed for release on PS5, Xbox Seriex X/S, and PC.
