System Shock PS5 PS4 1

Nightdive Studios has been working on a remake of the original System Shock for what feels like an eternity, but it seems like the end might finally be on the horizon. In a recent update to its Kickstarter backers, the studio has announced some new info on the project. Firstly, the game is now set to be published by Prime Matter, the new label from Koch Media.

The update also confirms platforms for the game, and including both PlayStation 5 and PS4. Yes, the 1994 sci-fi horror classic is getting a modern day makeover, and it's releasing on the very latest console hardware. There's no firm release date as yet, but the current official word is a launch sometime in 2022. Hopefully not February.

The project has been in the works for many years now, but it looks as though it's approaching the finish line. A handful of screenshots have emerged lately too, which we've embedded above. It's looking pretty good. With the game being a direct inspiration for BioShock, we're sure fans will want to check this out when it emerges.
