In February, weeks before the current chaos, we reported that the development of System Shock 3 was in doubt due to OtherSide Entertainment losing several key members of the design team. Apparently progress last year was made mostly without monetary backing thanks to publisher Starbreeze's ongoing woes. After recent rumours pointing to a shift in studios it looks like System Shock 3 is back in development - albeit with a new studio and company at the helm.

Chinese mega-corporation Tencent which owns slices of Fortnite, Call of Duty, League of Legends, PUBG, and many more. Details as to what exact studio or division or team within Tencent might take-over System Shock 3 remain unknown, but OtherSide has updated its site to confirm the transition.
We are happy to announce that Tencent will be taking the System Shock franchise forward. As a smaller Indie studio, it had been challenging for us to carry the project on our own. We believe Tencent’s deep capabilities and expertise as a leading game company will bring the franchise to new heights.

In a follow-up to the announcement Nightdive Studios boss Stephen Kick confirmed that Nightdive still owns the System Shock IP and franchise rights. This means that Tencent looks to have bought or acquired OtherSide's System Shock 3 project and will presumably continue its development.
