System Shock will launch on PC on May 30 following a successful demo

We’ll have to wait a little longer for Nightdive Studios’ long-awaited System Shock remake. The PC version of the game, slated to launch this month, is currently targeting a May 30 release date on Steam, GOG, and the Epic Games Store, according to an announcement voiced by the character. AI Shodan series villain. Nightdive added that the PC release will be followed by PlayStation and Xbox releases “in the near future”.

“We had hoped to release the game by the end of March, but that turned out to be out of our reach,” the developers wrote. “We’re simply humans (unlike Shodan!) after all.”

The long road to this System Shock remake began in 2016, when Nightdive raised $1.35 million via Kickstarter for what it called “a complete remake of the 1994 classic. , rebuilt from the ground up with the Unity engine”. Active development then moved to Unreal Engine, but was halted in early 2018, shortly after the team missed its original goal in December 2017.

During the hiatus, Nightdive has reduced what it calls “feature escalation” in the project and refocused on a target release date of 2020. The first of several early demos of the game launched in late 2019, but the game will miss its expected 2021 and 2022 release dates as development drags on.

A near-complete demo of the game launched in February, prompting Kevin Purdy of Ars to praise the game’s updated yet familiar graphics and overhauled look and feel. The AI ​​that cheats against you, will be more accessible in this game than in the original,” he said of the demo.

The System Shock 3 sequel project, which Warren Spector, the creator of the series, officially declared dead in March, is entirely distinct from Nightdive’s System Shock remake.
