Night Dive is also working on System Shock 3. The developer confirmed the news in 2015 and released short snippets of gameplay footage earlier this year. It looks similar to what you can see in System Shock Remastered’s demo. Deus Ex and System Shock producer Warren Spector joined the studio to lead development on System Shock 3.
System Shock isn’t the first game the studio’s remade. Night Dive remastered and released the original Turok late last year, and it has plans to remake the sequel as well. Both games are on their way to Xbox One.
System Shock’s original developer was Looking Glass Studios, while the sequel’s development was a collaboration with Irrational Games. After System Shock 2, Irrational went on to develop the series’ spiritual successor, BioShock.
