The reins of the development of Dead Space Remake are in the hands of Eric Baptizat , an industry veteran who has previously worked on numerous Ubisoft titles, including Assassin’s Creed Valhalla , for which he served as game director. The confirmation came via the LinkedIn profile of Baptizat himself.
Eric Baptizat joined EA Motive earlier this year, after a sixteen-year career at the French software house, to work on a new project, at the time, not yet announced. Involvement in a major project like the Dead Space remake was all in all predictable, but only thanks to his social profile do we now know that he is holding the role of game director of the next-gen remake of Isaac Clarke’s misadventures.
As mentioned at the beginning, Baptizat’s curriculum is very rich: game director of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, lead game designer of the Black Flag, Unity and Origins chapters, as well as slightly less successful titles such as Shaun White Skateboarding and Surf’s Up.
The EA Motive team working on Dead Space Remake also welcomed other former Ubisoft developers , including senior producer Philippe Ducharme (Watch Dogs Legion) and creative director Roman Campos-Oriola (For Honor).
