EA Is Preparing To Revive 'An Established IP' Next Month

A new report has suggested that EA will reveal a new title based on an established IP at the company's upcoming EA Play on July 22.

The project, according to GamesBeat's Jeff Grubb, is in development at EA's Motive studio.

On his 'Jeff Grubb's Game Mess' YouTube channel, he explained that “we’re going to see it… if we’re not dead first” - leading many to believe he's referring to a long-awaited revival of Dead Space.

As for Dead Space, the last mainline entry was Dead Space 3 which released in early 2013. It eschewed many of the first two games' horror elements and took a more action-focused approach, which alienated many fans (get it?).

EA Play will also see Battlefield 2042's third 'pillar' revealed. The game will not feature a campaign, but will feature 128-player 'All-Out Warfare', a new Hazard mode, and an as-yet-unannounced mode.

This new element, due to be announced at EA Play, will be "a love letter to Battlefield fans and one that long-time players will feel right at home with".
