A title that defines a genre comes along once in a while, with titles like Dark Souls and Resident Evil changing the definition of horror games. Now Motive is looking to remake Dead Space for new-gen consoles, and we now have a release window for their DS remake.
Here is the announcement:
This announcement follows a recent developer live stream where we got an in-depth look at the changes coming to the game and the work that is gone to add a whole new level of atmosphere to the interior of the USG Ishimura.

Motive invites you to the latest in their series of early looks at the development and what goes into the remake of a game. This live stream will focus on the studio’s philosophy for taking Dead Space’s award-winning audio design to the next level by bringing the game to today’s generation of platforms and the new Frostbite™ engine – while remaining faithful to the iconic atmosphere mood and sounds you know and love.
Though the game is a remake, the developers are Motive is aiming to further the sound design that was already applauded when the game first came out. The live stream offers a first listen to the changes done to the sounds of the Plasma Cutter and Pulse Rifle, and we also get a sample of Isaac’s new ALIVE system.
With the Resident Evil titles having remakes for the previous gen, Dead Space is primed and ready for a comeback. Hopefully, we do not have to wait too long before getting our first trailer.
The Dead Space remake is set to come out sometime in early 2023.
