Starbreeze has announced that it will be publishing the upcoming game, System Shock 3, from developer Otherside Entertainments.
Starbreeze is known for publishing games like Dead by Daylight and Psychonauts 2. The company will invest $12 million to System Shock 3 to bring the game to PC and consoles. Starbreeze CEO, Andersson-Klint, said in a press release that the studio is looking forward to bring the game to players.
System Shock is one of those iconic franchises in the history of games that still gets my blood going and Mr. Spector is one of the founding fathers of the modern action RPG. We’re greatly looking forward to bringing System Shock 3 to players world wide in our collaboration with Otherside Entertainment and Warren Spector’s team. I’ll be first in line to play.
OtherSide’s CEO Paul Neurath also added that the studio is “thrilled to be partnering with Starbreeze for System Shock 3. They truly get games and gamers, and have been able to translate that understanding into a robust publishing business, and build thriving gaming communities around their franchises”.
However, System Shock 3 is not the only System Shock game in development as Nightdive Studios is working on System Shock remake for whom a demo is available on Steam. The remake is in development for PC and Xbox One, however, the studio has noted that it could make it to PlayStation 4 but it is not confirmed yet.
System Shock 3 is currently in concept stages and the development is headed by Warren Spector and the team developing it consists of developers who have worked on games such as System Shock, System Shock 2, Deus Ex, and Thief: The Dark Project
