Nightdive Studios has been quietly working on the System Shock remake for a number of years, with delays and even project restarts pushing out its planned release a few times. With the most recent demo (playable on Steam) impressing, and the remake itself looking very cool - it looks to be finally on track for a March 2023 release.
The game also has a new publisher on board, Prime Matter, and as per Nightdive the studio has been focusing on big fixes, improvements, and localisation. "As some of you have already pointed out this is not our first time announcing a tentative launch window, but over the past few years much has changed," writes Nightdive. "The scope and scale of the project has evolved dramatically and with Prime Matter joining the project it’s enabled us to focus on quality-of-life improvements, bug fixing, and localization support - the last major steps towards releasing a game we’re all incredibly proud of. This has also given us time to go back and polish various aspects of the game that needed that extra shine."
System Shock and its sequel paved the way not only for the modern immersive sim, but iconic games like Deus Ex and BioShock.
