After what seemed like years of rumours, EA finally announced that a remake of the first Dead Space is in production exclusively for next-gen consoles and PC. The Dead Space remake is currently being made by Star Wars: Squadrons developer Motive, who are new to the series – but it seems a core member of the Dead Space 2 team has joined them.
As the original Dead Space team at Visceral Games was shut down by EA in 2017, the remake’s being handled by a fresh crew at Motive. In a new ‘meet the team’ article posted by EA, several core developers on the remake talk about their experience with Dead Space – including art director Michael Yazijian. As he recalls, “I remember enjoying it so much that I didn’t want it to be over.”
Yazijian also served the same role on Motive’s Star Wars: Squadrons and WB Montreal’s Batman: Arkham Origins – but, most interestingly, was also art director on Dead Space 2 as part of Visceral’s Montreal studio. This gives Yazijian “a unique perspective on the remake”, according to EA, with ideas from the sequel that’ll be used to craft the new game.
