Dead Space 2 and 3 Remakes EA Survey

Dead Space 2 Remake and ‘New’ Dead Space Game Put on Ice at EA Games

EA Games has reportedly shelved the idea of a Dead Space 2 Remake following poor sales of the first game. The company was looking into working on a sequel following the positive reviews of the original Dead Space Remake back in 2022 but sales didn’t meet its target for EA to move forward. Reports claim that the Dead Space Remake only managed to surpass 1 million copies sold worldwide.

At the time, two Dead Space projects were being considered at the company. The first would be a remake of Dead Space 2 which would follow the same formula of the first game. A report claims that EA was then throwing around ideas and exploring a new game in the series instead of a remake.

Most of the development team who worked on the Dead Space Remake were moved to other games shortly after the game’s launch. However, a small team stayed behind to brainstorm ideas. It is reported that all these ideas were put on ice shortly after the game’s launch as sales failed to meet EA’s expectations.

According to Bloomberg, EA spent a few months conceiving ideas for a new entry in the series. None were greenlit by the company. In fact, these sequel ideas all “fizzled before they could get very far” according to the report. This was due to the supposed poor sales of the Remake.

In the end, EA decided to shelve both the Dead Space 2 Remake and the possibility of a new game. However, the company has denied this report. In response to the original rumour spread around by Jeff Grubb regarding the cancellation of the Dead Space 2 Remake, EA claims there’s no validity in the story.

The company didn’t say whether or not any Dead Space game is still being worked on. The statement simply says that the rumour regarding Dead Space 2 being cancelled isn’t correct. There are now multiple reports swirling around online which back these cancellation rumours up so at the moment, EA wants you to believe the game is still being worked on….. we think?
