Dead Space’s creator thanks the payer for the “interest” with the new version
Dead Space series creator Glen Schofield commended EA Motive for its handling of the critically acclaimed remake.
Prompted by a post from his daughter Nicole Scofield (currently an environmental artist in his studio) regarding a remake, Glenn LinkedIn took over For thinking about the original, and thanking EA Motive for their work on the remake.
“To all who worked on the original, thank you for your contributions to this great game. It has stood the test of time.”
And to Motive, thank you for your interest in faithfully remaking the game. Congratulations.”
Our reviewer Illya was very impressed with his return to USG Ishimura, saying the remake successfully revitalized and expanded a game that was already a classic.
Schofield created Dead Space when he was the VP at the now-defunct Visceral Games Tournament. After his stint at Visceral, he created Sledgehammer Games which was acquired by Activision to work on the Call of Duty series. In 2019, Schofield joined South Korean conglomerate Krafton to head the new development team Striking Distance Studios.
Schofield led the development of the Callisto protocol. As a science fiction third-person survival horror game, The Callisto Protocol was widely seen as a spiritual successor to Dead Space. With the two games releasing within a month of each other, people couldn’t help but see them as competitors. Elia had some less positive thoughts about the Callisto Protocol, calling it “a soulless mishmash of unfocused ambitions.”
The Dead Space remake has received widespread praise since its release, even reeling in those who didn’t enjoy the original. The new version of Dead Space is currently available on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X / S and PC.
