EA Shuts Down ***** Space 2 Remake Rumors After Reports Indicate It Was Shelved

reported earlier today that EA’s Motive Studio was working on a ***** Space 2 remake before it was shelved following lackluster sales of the team’s ***** Space remake last year. However, EA has denied Grubb’s reporting, telling

, “We don’t normally comment on rumors but there is no validity to this story.” 

On Giant *****’s Game Mess Mornings show, Grubb said, “They were working on it, they were working on ***** Space 2 and they are no longer working on it. It is on the shelf because the first game had lackluster sales, is how it was phrased to me.”

He continues, adding, “As it stands right now, they were working on it; it was in the concepting phase…pre-production, and now that work has been put on the shelf.” 

Grubb revealed this today following yesterday’s news from Motive itself, where general manager Patrick Klaus announced the studio was creating a new team to support EA’s Battlefield franchise while development on its Iron Man game with Marvel continues. Hours later, EA denied Grubb’s claim in a statement to IGN

Following up on IGN‘s report, Grubb said on X (formerly

), “I give you my permission to believe EA if you want, but whenever a company says ‘that isn’t true’ but they don’t specify which part of the story they are talking about, well…yeah. ***** Space 2 was definitely being planned. It had a code name. And they aren’t making it now.” 

IGN news director Kat Bailey, who wrote IGN‘s story about all this today, responded to Grubb, saying, “My understanding based on my own sources is that the ***** Space 2 Remake was never considered. Also, EA’s statement was pretty definitive.” 

And that’s where it stands today. Grubb said Motive was working on a remake of ***** Space 2 before it was shelved following lackluster sales of last year’s ***** Space remake, and EA says that’s not true. Unfortunately, we’ll likely never know the true story here, but if you were holding out hope for a remake of ***** Space 2, it’s not happening for now it seems.

For what’s it’s worth, we asked ***** Space remake creative director Roman Campos-Oriola about the possibility of a ***** Space 2 remake in an interview conducted a few weeks after the game’s launch. His response: “…we’ll see how the game performs, what the company wants, what the studio wants, what we as a team we want to do, and we’ll figure it out from there. But for the moment, there’s no specific plan defined.”

Were you hoping for a remake of ***** Space 2 or are you glad Motive is working on Battlefield and Iron Man instead? Let us know in the comments below!
