System Shock remake still happening says Nightdive Studios, now due in 2020
Nightdive Studios, the team behind the highly anticipated System Shock remaster, has offered further insight into where the project went wrong in the run-up to its recent development hiatus, and offered a speculative new release date as production resumes.
In its original guise, Nightdive’s System Shock was intended to be a remaster of Looking Glass Technologies’ classic first-person sci-fi horror. However, the project quickly ballooned in scope, and was already being referred to as a “reboot” by the time its Kickstarter commenced in July 2016. In February this year, despite having raised $1,350,700 USD in backer money, Nightdive announced that it was putting the project on “hiatus” after letting “things get out of control”.
Now, having had time to reflect and regroup, Nightdive CEO Stephen Kick and business development director Larry Kuperman have spoken to PC Gamer at this week’s GDC, offering more details on what went wrong, and how it hopes to get the project back on track.
