The brand-new Dead Space remake officially has a release date, with EA announcing during a stream that the updated version of the beloved survival horror game will be out January 27, 2023.
In addition to the release date, EA also released a trove of new concept art for fans to pick through. While EA says it isn’t indicative of in-game footage, it does offer an idea of the scope that the development team is going for with its newly-updated version of Dead Space.
First announced in July 2021, Dead Space is a remake of the 2008 sci-fi horror game starring Isaac Clarke, an engineer who must battle a series of horrors known as Necromorphs. The original developer, Visceral Games, was shuttered in 2017, with co-creator Glen Schofield now working on a similar game set in the PUBG: Battlegrounds universe titled The Callisto Protocol.

Meanwhile, EA Motive is handling development of the remake.
According to EA, the Dead Space remake will seek to retain the look and feel of the original while utilizing “next-gen tech.” EA Motive has since shown off an early version of the game’s build while continuing to interface with fans, including adjusting weapon sounds based on fan feedback.
A “full reveal” of Dead Space will be arriving around Halloween, upon which EA Motive will properly take the wraps off its long-awaited sequel. When it releases next year, it will be available on PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC. In the meantime, check out our list of the most anticipated games for the rest of 2022.
