Speculation around a potential new Dead Space game increased on Thursday, after it was noticed that the game’s official YouTube channel was recently updated for the first time in nearly a decade.
The official Dead Space YouTube channel recently changed its profile picture from the logo of 2013 instalment Dead Space 3, to generic art for the series.
It’s the first change made on the channel since shortly after the release of that game eight years ago, and it’s significant in its timing.
Last week it was reported that Electronic Arts is set to announce a new instalment in the Dead Space series, developed by its Motive studio (Star Wars Squadrons). The new game – the horror series’ first new entry in a decade – will be a “reimagining” of the series, according to Gematsu.
The recent update to Dead Space’s social media channel could be seen as potential corroboration of this report, but it could also be an old employee with the keys to the account, since original creator Visceral was shut down.
Either way, there are only several weeks to wait until EA Play Live on July 22, when the alleged new Dead Space is claimed to be planned for a reveal.
The Dead Space series first released in 2008 and has not seen a new instalment since 2013’s Dead Space 3. The series’ developer, Visceral Games, was closed by EA in 2017.
