System Shock 3 confirmed by Otherside Entertainment.

The teasing sure didn’t last long. A teaser site from developer OtherSide Entertainment indicates that the studio is working on System Shock 3, a sequel to the sci-fi survival-horror System Shock 2 released back in 1999. Last night, a teaser page showed up in the Twitter feed of OtherSide Entertainment, a small studio led by Paul Neurath — co-founder of System Shock creator Looking Glass Studios. The previous games were first person shooters with RPG elements and thanks to the involvement of Irrational games, they are seen as precursors to the Bioshock franchise.

Their Twitter page described more of who they are: “Developing Underworld Ascendant, a modern update of the classic Ultima Underworld series w/ numerous original Looking Glass (System Shock, Thief) team”. On Monday, Otherside Entertainment—currently hard at work on Underworld Ascendant and helmed by Looking Glass co-founder Paul Neurath—posted this teaser page: The question now becomes one of scale. The long-dead System Shock franchise — which served as inspiration for the critically acclaimed Bioshock series — is actually getting a lot of attention lately. Night Dive Studios released an enhanced edition of the series’ first installment back in September, and it’s now working on a complete reboot of that game. It’s currently planning a full remake of the original System Shock, but it also mentioned plans to continue the series — plans that, if this announcement pans out, will be realized by OtherSide.

OtherSide, founded just a year ago, is “focused on rebooting classic game franchises.” It’s currently developing Underworld Ascendant, the crowdfunded follow-up to Looking Glass classic Ultima Underworld: The Stygian Abyss. We’ll see what Sunday has in store—perhaps is happening with the backing of a major publisher, or Bill Gates has been waiting his whole life to fund this game.
