Way back in 2016, fans of the original System Shock crowdfunded a full remake, being developed by Nightdive Studios. The game has had a turbulent time in development, but all these years later, the game is finally set to launch.
Nightdive’s System Shock remake has been in development since crowdfunding began five years ago. In 2018, the studio had to recalibrate after allowing the scope of the project to grow too large. This led to the project being on hold for a time, but later that year, development was back on track.
Now, System Shock Remake is ready for the spotlight, with Nightdive Studios currently going through QA and beta testing ahead of its 2022 release date. Over at PCGamer, a huge number of new screenshots of the game have also been shared, some of which you can see in the gallery above, giving us a good look at what to expect from this remake in terms of graphics, art design and visual fidelity.
System Shock initially released in 1994 and went on to become a cult classic. Since the System Shock Remake Kickstarter, we’ve also seen a smaller System Shock 2 remaster with VR support, as well as an announcement for System Shock 3, a full-blown sequel.
