Therefore, it will no longer appear for PS4 and Xbox One

Dead Space Remake will no longer be released for Last Gen systems.

The Dead Space series had disappeared from the limelight for nearly a decade, and in January it’s celebrating a revival. This is when the remake developed by EA Motive appears and allows us to return to the USG Ishimura spaceship infested with necromorphs in the role of Isaac Clarke.

But those who had hoped to be able to celebrate this return on PlayStation 4 or Xbox One may be disappointed. As the title will not appear for Last Gen systems, the release will only take place on the PS5, Xbox Series X/S and PC.

No compromise on graphics quality

During our audition in London, we also got to speak to Creative Director Roman Campos-Oriola and Artistic Director Mike Yazijian and asked them about, among other things, the reasons behind the current-gen-only decision. Unsurprisingly, the game’s overhauled technology plays a central role here:

“We decided very early in development for generation 5 (PS5 and Xbox Series X/S, editor’s note) and the PC. […] We wanted a particular approach to lighting in the game, among other things, because most of it is dynamic. There are also things like the procedural destruction system. […] And we wondered where we could find these most impressive elements. […]”

Art director Mike Yazijian added that visual quality was an important decision criteria. They wanted to make sure that this quality could be guaranteed through and through and not make or water down any compromises. Without mentioning the PS4 and Xbox One here, obviously those same compromises should have been made on Last Gen systems.

The Dead Space Remake now runs on EA’s Frostbite engine and, in addition to numerous visual tweaks and improvements, also features other tweaks, such as a spaceship that can be explored more freely or revised Zero-G sections. You can read more about that in our big preview.

It won’t be long before the release. The scheduled release date is January 27, 2023. Callisto Protocol, a game that has many striking parallels, will be released in December. It’s less surprising when you know who is hiding behind the title. This is the studio of Glen Schofield, which also participated in the launch of the first Dead Space.

Would you have liked to play the Dead Space Remake on the Last Gen or do you understand the reasoning?
