We may be playing the Dead Space remake sooner than we thought.

Had it not leaked ahead of time, the Dead Space remake teaser shown at EA Play Live would have been a major surprise. Nevertheless, it’s one EA project many of us are excited about.

Now, according to a GamesBeat report, developer Motive Studios is actually aiming for a fall 2022 release for the game, which is a little earlier than most might have imagined given the very brief teaser.

A fiscal 2023 release, according to the report, is EA’s plan. EA will start communicating this target early next year when it talks about FY2023, where a late-2022 release would fall into.

Interestingly, it sounds like there’s a plan to show more of the game before the end of this year, though it’s not clear whether that will be attached to a big show like The Game Awards or simply take the form of a trailer drop. Of course, as the report points out, plans often change, so do take this information with a grain of salt.

We recently learned a few things about the team behind the Dead Space remake. The game is directed by Assassin’s Creed Valhalla’s director, and includes a number of veteran Ubisoft developers in leadership roles.
