The Dead Space Remake is coming along, and according to the developers, the team is now targeting an early 2023 release window for its ambitious survival horror game.
Following the latest developer update which did a deep dive into the realistic audio systems in Dead Space Remake, the developers announced that they are targeting an early 2023 release window for the remake.
“We want to make sure that we are in a place where the game we’re going to deliver is going to be building upon the expectations of fans,” the developers said in today’s stream. “So right now, we’ll say early next year. We have a date in mind and we want to make sure that everything converges for this.”
Motive says the team is just a couple of weeks away from being able to do a full walkthrough of the game. But as reiterated many times in the stream and by the devs, everything fans have seen so far of Dead Space Remake is in early alpha.

However, that hasn’t made what was revealed any less impressive. The devs previously detailed how they’re aiming to have realistic physics for how Isaac shoots and cuts the necromorphs. Today’s audio presentation revealed this realism extends to the sound as well, with Isaac’s dialogue and breathing changing based on how fatigued he is.
Another Dead Space Remake dev update will premiere in the coming weeks, this time focused on art direction. Check out IGN’s interview with the Dead Space Remake devs from when the remake was first announced here.
