After a successful Kickstarter, Nightdive Studios are launching their System Shock reboot on PlayStation 4 in the first Quarter of 2018.
System Shock broke out onto Kickstarter last month with a goal of $900,000. Since then, backers have pledged more than $1 million. According to the Kickstarter page, the game is aiming for a December 2017 release.
In a post on the PlayStation Blog, Project Director on the game, Jason Fader stated that:
“It’s still early in the project, but there was such a huge demand for a PS4 version that we immediately did what we could to make that happen.”
Additionally, on the subject of the development team, Fader was quick to point out the talent behind the game:
“Revisiting a game that has inspired other awesome games (such as Dead Space and BioShock) requires the right team for the job, so we’ve been ramping up our team with AAA talent from projects like Planetside, Fallout, and even the original System Shock. To help produce the best content possible, we’ve brought on several members of the Fallout: New Vegas team including myself, Chris Avellone, Jessica Johnson, Kevin Manning, and Dan Rubalcaba. Chris Avellone and I worked very closely on the New Vegas DLCs, especially the award-winning Old World Blues, where we explored a variety of scifi themes in the world of Fallout. We’re bringing a lot of experience to the table and will make a System Shock game fans old and new will be sure to love.”
