Remakes have been a contentious point of debate over the past few years. On the one hand, why remake something that was already good when you can come out with something original, and on the other hand you have the Resident Evil Remakes. The latter apparently being an inspiration for the rumored upcoming Dead Space Reboot/Remake.

Recently, it was reported by several sources that a new Dead Space game is on the way, and new reports suggest it could be a remake of the original game but with modern visuals and slight gameplay changes inspired by Capcom’s recent Resident Evil Remakes.

Like Resident Evil 2 Remake, expect the next Dead Space to use the original game as a strong foundation. But it should also have modern visuals. And it will likely bring in new gameplay mechanics inspired by other entries in the franchise,” said resident leaker Jeff Grubb in a recent report.

And speaking of Capcom, it is likely a major reason a new Dead Space is happening. While EA has let its horror franchise wither, the Resident Evil series is larger than ever. And Capcom has provided an easy blueprint for EA to follow.

If the rumors are true, then it’s a warm welcome from EA who have largely moved away from single player game experiences. But the success of Respawn’s Star Wars: Jedi - Fallen Order has apparently made EA more open to single player games again, plus the continued success of Capcom’s Resident Evil series shows Horror is still a strong market for gamers.

Either way, we’ll likely hear more at the EA Play Live event later this month on July 22nd, where we’ll also learn more about Battlefield 2042, but unfortunately not Mass Effect 5 or Dragon Age 4 as BioWare recently confirmed.

What do you think? Would you be excited for a Dead Space Remake inspired by the recent Resident Evil Remakes? What changes/improvements would you like to see? And how could the series move further from this? Let us know your thoughts!

I would have preferred that they finish the DS story instead of doing a reboot/remake.

It would be nice to see, especially, if it would kind of be predecessor to bringing series back and afterwards making good new games, like Mass Effect series. Though we will have to see. But I do hope Fallen Order was enough of wakeup call for EA that they are missing on ton of money from audience they kept ignoring in their multiplayer craze. Still, I personally am fine with remakes...

... since they bring new people to franchises. Sure it doesn't necessarily need PC remaster, but there are ton of people who would play it on console and wouldn't want to buy old one. And remaster for PC as side effect isn't bad. Though it is up to people to decide whether they want to pay for it or keep playing old version.

Don't see the point of remaking DS. They could've just ported the trilogy with hdr and ray-tracing and such.
Remaking the REs made sense, this, not so sure. They should've just made a sequel to Awakening. Oh, well, I'll re-buy it on sale eventually, DS is just one of my fav ips.

"inspired by" = "they sold well, so we want a piece of that money pie because coming up with original ideas is harder than taking an existing game that people already love and selling it back to them again with better graphics"

Remasters are cash grabs most of the time.
remakes can be worth spending on sale.

Contextually he means that the RE2 remake was great because the studio gave a f--k.
