Developing this remake has been a lot of fun for us at Motive, as we’re true fans of the franchise and want to treat it with the respect it deserves. It’s been equally exciting to see players’ reactions as we’re taking them on this development journey with us,” said Senior Producer, Phillippe Ducharme.

We’re making great progress on our road to hitting Alpha and we’re happy to announce that the game will be launching in January next year,” added Ducharme. “We can’t wait for players, both old and new, to see how we’ve elevated the original experience in the remake to be just as impactful for this generation.


When does Dead Space release?

Dead Space will release for PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X|S on January 27th, 2023. However, that being said it’s always worth keeping in mind that delays are always likely.
