Now that the first round of events has passed in June, gamers are expecting Sony to make a move. However, the one that already announced that it has pending announcements is Electronic Arts that announced its EA Play for July 20. Rumors of possible EA games have already started to be heard and one of those is the return of the Dead Space franchise.
One of the unofficial sources is journalist Jeff Grubb who commented on su stream
Return of Dead Space
This is obviously not a sure thing but everything points to that side. Dead Space was born in the offices of Visceral Games, a studio that EA eventually closed due to poor financial results, all this happened shortly after Visceral, led by Amy Hennig, could not create a Star Wars title.
Many of its employees ended up in other studios of the same EA, one of these was Motive Studios that was created to be a support in AAA title developments. Precisely EA Motive was able to collaborate on Star Wars: Battlefront II and develop Star Wars: Squadrons, so for practical purposes Motive is a derivative of the defunct Visceral Games.
Remember that the franchise had three games, the first have good reviews and are remembered as good horror titles. For its part, the third one turned to action and players blamed EA for forcing Visceral to change the atmosphere of the closing of the trilogy. Since then the saga has been shelved.
However, its features (third-person space shooter) are quite popular and perhaps today’s EA is more willing to make the title what it should be. In any case, we will have to wait until EA Play on July 20 to confirm these rumors.
