Developer EA Motive Studios released the remake of the sci-fi survival horror classic, Dead Space, last month and in a new Reddit AMA revealed the team is interested in continuing to work on the Dead Space franchise.

"We've said both internally and externally that we'd be interested in continuing our work on the Dead Space franchise," the developer wrote. "Our Core group is passionate about the brand and we need to discuss what's the right next step for us.

"There's numerous factors that need to be taken into account at a studio and company level but first, the team will take a well deserved vacation before determining what's next. We have an amazing team at Motive that has started working on Iron Man and you you can rest assured that it's in great hands!

"That's so kind of you! But I did have an incredibly solid foundation of story and characters to work from. The original Dead Space writers did an amazing job."

EA Motive is also working on a single-player, third-person, action-adventure Iron Man video game. It was announced to be in pre-production in September 2022. It is the first of "several new games" in a collaboration between Marvel and Electronic Arts. 

Dead Space is available for the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.

Single instalment remakes are one thing, I’m not sure if its a good idea to encourage devs/publishers to churn out rolling remakes of franchises.
More Dead Space? Sure, but preferably a brand new instalment rather than another remake.

EA needs to be convinced to do any more Dead Space Remakes....let alone brand new games in the Dead Space series.
We haven't seen any sales yet that would convince EA decision makers, whom we all know care more about greed than anything else, with a few minor exceptions.

Just finished Remake twice, including new game +.
Definitely a good game, but I thought lack of enemy variety really counted against the game.
Dead space 2 is STILL superior in every way possible, & 3x more deserving of a remaster/Remake.

John Carpenter said he would make a Dead Space movie if he was asked, so what are you waiting for EA?
