When you come back for a license like this, you have to expect those who initiated it to have something to say. Glen Schofield is not just anyone. The first Dead Space is his baby. He was the producer when he worked at EA Redwood Shores / Visceral Games, with his sidekick Michael Condry, co-director, with whom he later left to found Sledgehammer Games.
The announcement of Dead Space, remake supervised by Motive Studios, he obviously wanted to talk about it with his followers on social networks.

One of the highlights of my career was directing the original Dead Space. I am excited to see what EA Motivates in fact!
Schofield is therefore one of the people who got on the hype train, but at the locomotive level. The studio’s official account was quick to respond to him, mentioning in passing that he was waiting for The Callisto Protocol, his new project in progress.
