Dead Space series co-creator and former Visceral Games developer says that he is excited by the news of the upcoming remake.
Glen Schofield is one of the most well-known developers in the industry. Despite not being involved with the sequels, Schofield certainly paved the way for one of the best survival horror series of all time. Though the less we say about Dead Space 3, the better.
Last week at EA Play Live, all the rumours were confirmed, and the Dead Space remake was announced. Fans of the series erupted in excitement across social media, and it looks like Schofield also shares our enthusiasm.
Reacting to the news of the remake, Schofield tweeted: “Directing the original Dead Space was one of the highlights of my career. Excited to see what EA Motive Studio teams does with it!”

EA Motive Studio responded in kind to the tweet from Schofield, replying: “You paved the way for us, Glen. Looking forward to the Callisto Protocol as well.”
When Schofield left Visceral Games, he went on to co-found Sledgehammer Games with Michael Condrey in 2009. Sledgehammer Games is one of several studios that develops the Call of Duty franchise.
Schofield is working on a new horror game
However, in 2020 during The Game Awards, Schofield announced a new studio called Striking Distance Games to work on a new horror title, The Callisto Protocol.
Horror fans instantly drew comparisons from The Callisto Protocol, as the Dead Space DNA was clear to see. The Callisto Protocol is expected to release for PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X|S in 2022.
The Dead Space remake will also be a next-gen exclusive but currently has no release window has been announced.
