Assassin's Creed Valhalla's Director Eric Baptizat has left Ubisoft and joined EA Motive who are rumoured to be working on a new Dead Space title.
This news comes from Axios (via VGC), who report that Baptizat left the publisher after 15 years, playing a pivotal role in three of the most beloved Assassin's Creed entries: Valhalla, Origins, and Black Flag.
This comes as EA Motive is working on multiple projects with one of them reportedly being a reimagining of the beloved Dead Space franchise, set to be revealed at EA Play Live in July.
It isn't clear, however, if Baptizat is working on this new Dead Space reboot or another project in the works at EA Motive.
The Dead Space series was one of the hallmarks of EA's line-up in the 2000s and 2010s but the studio behind the series, Visceral Games was shut down by EA as they were working on a Star Wars action game.
We have yet to see how this new Dead Space project will play or be received by fans, but players who loved the series are at least excited to see it get a second life.
