Electronic Arts announced today that the Dead Space remake will arrive on January 27, 2023.
“Developing this remake was a lot of fun for us at Motive as we are true fans of the franchise and we want to treat it with the respect it deserves,” said senior producer Phillippe Ducharme. “It’s been equally exciting to see player reactions as we take them on this development journey with us.
“We’re making great progress on our way to reaching alpha and are happy to announce that the game will launch in January of next year. We can’t wait for players, both old and new, to see how it elevates the original remake experience to be so impactful for this generation.”
The announcement came during a live stream reviewing Dead Space’s revised visuals, including updated assets, environments, lighting and other effects, collectively providing what EA claims are “unprecedented levels of immersion”.

Creative director Roman Campos-Oriola said the plan now is for the development team to go “upside down” and work towards a full gameplay reveal, which is scheduled for October – likely and fittingly, sometime around Halloween.
