With Motive Studios taking the reins on this iconic horror franchise, there's a lot of reasons to be excited for the Dead Space remake, but EA still has to prove a few things.
What's wrong with other EA's remasters?
Nothing, Mass Effect: Legendary Edition was excellent. But a remake, announced less than four years after the original developer was shut down, is a big step up from that. I'm optimistic it'll be great!
None of the acclaimed "remakes" (luxury remasters) were made by the original studios. Most of them were either closed or had abandoned IPs for decades.
Its also announced less than a year after the original creators announced their Dead Space successor.
Their recent remasters are really good, but they have had some very average remasters before that. Burnout Remastered, NFS remasters, etc. I don't think EA has to really prove anything on this one, they just have to stick to the formula they used with Mass Effect.
I think it's Motive that has something to prove. Starwars Squadrons was graphically meh to me when i played it and i don't know what else they have done.
Dead Space was amazing, and the original is worthy of a Bluepoint quality remake. I sure hope EA can do it justice.
EA should have kept Visceral opened and had them work on this remake. If I was an ex employee and working on all three games just putting blood sweat and tears into a franchise that is memorable. Just to have my studio shut down and me fired and seeing this I would be a urked. I really do want this remake to be good Dead Space is my favorite horror franchise but two letters on the cover wrecked it for me when they shut down Visceral.
I wish the original creators of the game were making a reboot instead. I really don't have faith in what this studio is doing after watching their interview.
They need to prove that they can release the game before 2022 and not do like all the others ones and use COVID for excuse
Im sick of remakes, I want new games just like Im sick of Hollywood remakes and want new movies. This is EA taking a look at Sonys playbook and trying to tear a page from it, theyre trying to duplicate the Bluepoint powerplay. EA envies the way PlayStation does things, but they cant shed their Microsoft business tactic. You cant really be a suit and a gamer, Xbox execs are suits, PlayStation execs are gamers.
