System Shock 3 Might Get a Console Release

System Shock 3 will have a summer 2018 launch “to PC and other platforms.”

If you hadn’t ever heard about the System Shock franchise, well, we’re not all that surprised. The first game was released over 20 years ago in 1994. A sequel, System Shock 2, was released 5 years later in 1999 and the franchise has been dormant since.

However, now, 18 years after the release of the last installment, System Shock 3 has been confirmed by developers Nightdive Studios following a highly successful Kickstarter campaign that raised over $1.3 million to cover development costs.

Seen as a spiritual predecessor to BioShock and the origin of the cyberpunk canon, it should come as no surprise that the franchise is still remembered fondly by a huge cult following. Studio Director for OtherSide Entertainment, Warren Spector outlined the potential of the System Shock 3 release, saying:

“The announcement of the System Shock update from Nightdive [made it] apparent that not only do people remember [the game], they care very deeply about it.”

In the publishers launch material, they referenced the release “to PC and other platforms.” As for which platforms this could encompass? When asked for a comment, a Starbreeze representative simply replied, “Other exact platforms are still pending; we’ll share more news about System Shock 3 in the future.”
