Following the launch of the Dead Space remake and its positive reception, EA is seemingly asking select fans if they’d like to see a Dead Space 2 or 3 remake next.
As reported by Eurogamer, the survey in question was shared on Twitter by Dillon Rogers, a developer on Gloomwood, and it simply asks, “how interested would you be in a similar remake of Dead Space 2 (2011)?” and “How interested would you be in a similar remake of Dead Space 3 (2013)?”
Pfft. The survey EA is sending out. On the wall – the writing. pic.twitter.com/o2f1OPC1zM

It’s a pretty standard question with the responses ranging from “not at all interested” to “extremely interested,” but it shows EA is at least entertaining the idea. It shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone, but it’s always nice to see these questions being asked.
Rogers’ tweet made its way to ResetERA, and fans began chiming in with their own opinions. Many are all for a Dead Space 2 remake, but there is a little more trepidation for one for Dead Space 3.
“[Dead Space] 3 needs to be reimagined entirely to remove the crafting mechanics and possibly redo some story beats to not have so much of that game’s story content locked behind co-op and which character you’re playing as,” ResetERA user Jersey_Tom wrote. “So much of that game was ruined because of EA’s meddling through micro-transactions and the mistaken idea that Dead Space fans were interested in an RE5-esque co-op experience.
“A full remake would be quite the undertaking to make that game standout. But definitely agree with others that a Dead Space 2 remake is a sure fire moneymaker.”
We gave Dead Space 2 a 9/10 back in 2011, and Dead Space 3 a 7.8/10 in 2013. While we said Dead Space 2’s launch meant “survival horror has a new gold standard,” we said Dead Space 3 was a “ferociously good time, in spite of itself.”
In our review of the Dead Space remake, we said it is “a superb remake and undoubtedly the definitive way to experience one of the best survival horror shooters that Capcom never made.”
It may be some time before we see any of these remakes, however, as Dead Space remake developer EA Motive recently announced it was working on an Iron Man game.
