System Shock Remake will be launched next year, new screenshots exposed

Nightdive Studio has been remaking System Shock for some time. The game was first released in 2016 and is tentatively scheduled to launch this summer, but will now be launched sometime in 2022.

Unfortunately, Nightdive still has not set an exact release date. It did announce a distribution agreement with Prime Matter to help bring the game to PCs and unspecified consoles. Occurring in an abandoned space station, the first-person game mission player survives a hostile AI named SHODAN and dangerous enemies lurking on the ship. The original game in 1994 is widely regarded as the classic and pioneer of story-driven first-person action games.

Nightdive has also released a batch of new screenshots, which you can view in the gallery below.

The updated and playable PC demo of System Shock was released in February, and you can still download it on Steam, Epic Games Store and GOG. Nightdive calls it the final demo before the game is fully released.

The wait is still going on, but some updates are better than none (unlike the long-lost System Shock 3). In case you missed it, the live-action System Shock TV show is also in production.
