Dead Space Remake arrives on January 27. The developer confirmed that release timing during a dev stream today. The game reboots the Dead Space franchise and builds on the bones of the older games.
Publisher Electronic Arts once internally planned to launch Dead Space Remake in October. But the development team decided to take a few more months. At the same time, EA isn’t pushing the game out of its fiscal year.
During its earnings report earlier this week, EA confirmed it would have a “remake” during fiscal Q4, which ends in March 2023. But the company also plans to launch a “big IP” in that quarter. That game is Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, the sequel to Fallen Order, according to several people familiar with EA’s plans.
It makes sense to launch both games before the end of the fiscal year, as the company won’t have many new games for the rest of calendar 2022.
Motive is also planning a gameplay reveal in October.
