OtherSide Entertainment has announced that, in light of Starbreeze’s current situation, the two studios decided together that it would be best for them to go their separate ways. As such, Starbreeze is no longer attached to this project.
Furthermore, OtherSide has revealed that the game is halfway completed and that it already feels like a System Shock game, while at the same time introduces new elements to the franchise.
As Warren Spector said:
“We parted ways with Starbreeze (amicably), which means we are in the process of lining up a new publishing partner. Happily, given the pedigree of System Shock and the progress we’ve made so far there’s already a lot of interest. Has the situation affected development? Not really. The team is still, as we say, ‘psyched and cranking’ – in other words, continuing as normal. I’m confident we can bring System Shock 3 to market and have it take its place as a leading title in the immersive simulation genre.”
OtherSide will reveal more details about System Shock 3 soon so stay tuned for more!
