“Dead Space” remake is set to release only on current-gen consoles. This means that it will only be available on PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X|S. For “Dead Space” fans who haven’t made the jump from PS4 or Xbox One, you have until January to get your hands on a new console. “Dead Space” remake joins “Gotham Knights” as one of the few non-first party games that are ditching last-gen consoles.
As for the reason why the “Dead Space” remake is only available on current-gen consoles, EA Motive provided a few reasons. Developers from EA Motive (via IGN) stated that the tech in the current-gen consoles allows them to fully realize their vision. This includes using the SSDs in the new consoles in a way that allows them to avoid cutting to a loading screen, taking people out of the atmosphere. As more consoles get into people’s hands, expect more companies to release games on new consoles only, leaving the PS4 and Xbox One behind.
