Electronic Arts’ Dead Space horror franchise is reportedly on ice, again

What you need to know

  • The Dead Space survival-horror game franchise was first put on ice after Dead Space 3 failed to meet sales expectations in 2013. 
  • A decade later, Electronic Arts’ Motive Studio put out a remake of the original game, which was critically acclaimed. 
  • Comments from Giant Bomb’s Jeff Grubb indicate that a remake of Dead Space 2 has been canceled, which Electronic Arts denied in a statement to IGN.
  • Bloomberg’s Jason Schreier reports that a remake of Dead Space 2 was explored but never greenlit, and that the franchise is again on ice.

If you were hoping for more Isaac Clarke and Necromorphs, take a seat. 

A report from Bloomberg indicates that Electronic Arts’ Motive Studio is not continuing to work on the Dead Space franchise. The report indicates that while ideas for a new game were explored, nothing was ever greenlit, with sources citing disappointing sales for the Dead Space remake, which released in January 2023.
