Phillippe Ducharme, senior producer of the Dead Space remake, said: “The Dead Space franchise made a huge impact on the survival horror genre when it was released 12 years ago, and I came to Motive as a fan first to specifically work on this game.
“We have a passionate team at Motive who are approaching this remake as a love letter to the franchise.
“Going back to the original and having the opportunity to do so on next gen consoles excited everyone on the team. As we look to modernize the game, we’ve reached out to dedicated fans and invited them to provide us with feedback since the early stages of production to deliver the Dead Space game they want and for new players to enjoy as well.”
EA said the Dead Space remake will boast “improved story, characters, gameplay mechanics and more”.
