The 1994 System Shock is being remade. It’s a project that has been in the works since 2016 after it was successfully kickstarted. Though it has had expected release dates dating back to 2017, the System Shock remake is still not out, but developer Nightdive Studios is closer than ever. Just yesterday, they released a statement on Kickstarter about an updated release plan. I say “release plan” because there is still no official release date, but there are quite a few exciting components to it, all of which will excite System Shock fans.
First up, news on System Shock remake. There will be another demo coming out sometime in February. There have been multiple demos of the game over the past 6 years, but this one will have all the updates and improvements that fans have given feedback on. This demo will come out around the time that System Shock remake pre-orders go live on Steam, GOG, and Epic Games Store. A console demo is expected later. Something else that Nightdive Studios has been working on is System Shock 2: Enhanced Edition. This is a remastered version of the game, but it is also having the most popular mods from the System Shock community officially implemented to enhance the game further.
It may seem like a lot to juggle, but Nightdive Studios is also working on a System Shock 2 VR project. There is a bit of information on that, but it is more of a back burner project; their focus remains System Shock remake and System Shock 2: Enhanced Edition, which are supposedly coming out around the same time. Anyone who pre-orders the System Shock remake will be getting System Shock 2: Enhanced Edition for free. That also goes for anyone who contributed $30 or more to the Kickstarter. You can check out all the progress, concept art, and video updates on the game’s Kickstarter page. System Shock remake is expected to come out for PC and undetermined consoles.
