Dead Space

Over the past few days, there’s been a rumour circulating about how EA has plans to announce a new game based on an “established” IP at its upcoming live event taking place this July. After the combined efforts of insiders and a number of websites, it seems the revival has been narrowed down to the sci-fi horror series, Dead Space. It’s believed to be a “reimagining” of the series and is apparently being handled by Motive Studios.

Now, while there is absolutely no guarantee a new Dead Space game would necessarily come to Switch, according to the YouTuber Doctre81 there might be a chance. He believes a job listing by Motive Studios – dating back to last February could be a hint. At the time, the studio was seeking a Rendering Engineer to work on a “beloved and revered” IP and required an individual who had experience with multiple platforms (including Switch) and to develop in the Frostbite Engine.

While the Frostbite Engine didn’t support the Switch back then, later on in the year, EA announced its “first-ever” Frostbite engine game to be released on the Switch – Plants Vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville Complete Edition.

Nintendo does have some history with the Dead Space series. In 2009, during the Wii generation, it received the spin-off rail-shooter prequel, Dead Space: Extraction. EA has also shown plenty of support for the Switch in recent times. Would you like to see EA revive the Dead Space IP? What other older series would you like to see it bring back?
