Dead Space remake trailer with PS4 listing was a mistake

Dead Space remake

Still just one for the newer generation

A recent PlayStation trailer for the upcoming remake of Dead Space listed PS4 alongside PS5, sparking some speculation it might arrive on both generations. A new report indicates that was a mistake, however.

According to Eurogamer, the trailer listing both PlayStation platforms is “a mistake,” as the outlet understands. The original listing for PS4 obviously stirred up some rampant speculation that this might turn out to be a PS4 game as well.

While this trailer is still online as of this writing, it no longer lists PS4 in the title as it previously did. Looks like Dead Space is still aiming for just the newer generation.

Back out to space

The Dead Space remake is being handled by Electronic Arts’ Motive studio, which previously worked on games like Star Wars Battlefront II and Star Wars Squadrons.

For Dead Space, the team has been surprisingly candid about the development process. Motive has shown several deep, behind-the-scenes looks at the making of this remake, spotlighting sound, art, and more.

We also got a look at some gameplay just this week, along with the reveal of a really neat (and really expensive) collector’s edition from Limited Run Games.

It’s been quite a few years since players first set foot on the USG Ishimura. But honestly, I’m more than ready for a Dead Space revival. I’m not even one for horror games most of the time, but I loved the sci-fi terror of the Dead Space series.

We’ll see how Motive’s own venture onto the Ishimura goes when Dead Space launches January 27, 2023 for PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.
