Is Isaac Clarke making a return?
There have been rumours circulating of a new instalment in the Dead Space series potentially being in the works. Different developers and News Outlets have left a trail of bread crumbs and we have been attempting to follow them in true Hansel & Gretel fashion.
During a video stream on Friday, Gamesbeat journalist Jeff Grubb hinted that an unannounced EA title would be revealed at their event on July 22. He had previously stated that EA’s Motive studio had been working on “an established IP” revival. “I think you’ll be happy,” he said. A few days later, he teased: “we’re going to see it… if we’re not dead first”.
Additionally, one of the previous Dead Space writers Antony Johnston had recently taken to Twitter to tease fans, stating that he had been working on an upcoming game for the last two years. Coincidence? I think not.
All jokes aside, we will have to wait until the July 22 event to discover whether the rumours actually have any weight. However, I for one cannot wait.
As reported by Gematsu, the game is likely to be more of a “reimagining” rather than a direct sequel to the existing trilogy. Therefore, we may not be revisiting Isaac Clarke’s character. However, it’s likely this upcoming game will maintain a lot of the same core mechanics. For example, the third person element, along with similar eerie Sci-Fi horror and gore.
I am particularly interested to see how they utilise PS5’s Tempest Audio Engine. Alongside the PS5’s graphical potential, this game could set a precedent for how new horror games are developed in the future.
