System Shock 3 is a Reality

System Shock 3 Announced.

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. 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. Considering that the original is 21 years in the past, an update should provide a much more palatable manner in which to catch yourself up in time for the newest entry.

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.
