After a long and apparently arduous development path, it looks like the System Shock remake is finally about to arrive in 2023. The team at Nightdive Studios shared a new developer update on January 2nd, in which was announced a new release window of March, 2023.
This isn’t the first time a launch window has been announced for System Shock, as the developer themselves pointed out in the update post. The game was first announced back in 2015 as a remaster of the 1994 cult-classic System Shock, which was a spiritual predecessor of the Bioshock franchise. The team took a hiatus from development of the game in 2018. The developers now consider the new System Shock “a faithful reboot” rather than a mere remaster, as it has been reworked with more “modern design principles.”
