The System Shock remake could also be out now, however that does not imply developer Nightdive Studios is completed with the IP.
There is a System Shock 2 remaster coming quickly in spite of everything, however there is likely to be extra. Nightdive CEO and System Shock remake director, Stephen Kick, spoke to TRG in an interview in regards to the growth of the sport. In direction of the tip of the dialog, Kick revealed that the crew could have plans for the franchise going ahead, however not essentially leaping proper right into a remake of System Shock 2.
“There’s been a variety of discussions about what it’s we need to do subsequent,” Kick says in our interview, “whether or not that be a full on remake of System Shock 2 or if we need to let the Enhanced Version breathe by itself for a bit.
“However we have talked about exploring the System Shock universe in several genres. Perhaps an XCOM-like that takes place earlier than the occasions of System Shock 1, the place you are the resistance on Citadel Station, preventing SHODAN’s cyborgs and machines. Personally, I feel that may be actually cool. To type of expertise it from a unique angle.”
Naturally, this is not affirmation that Nightdive Studios is certainly engaged on a method sport akin to XCOM 2 throughout the System Shock universe. Nevertheless it’s definitely a pitch that just about writes itself.
Nightdive has already performed a lot of the arduous work in creating belongings for the System Shock remake. Citadel Station’s labyrinthine construction and tight corridors would additionally make nice degree design fodder for a turn-based technique title.
I can simply think about creating and naming my very own Citadel Station survivors, fastidiously growing their abilities and rising connected to them as they combat and inevitably perish within the wake of SHODAN’s mutant cyborg military.
And talking of SHODAN, it is simple to image the rogue AI taunting you as you and your troops battle to outlive towards her onslaught. The extra I give it some thought, the extra I would like it to be actual.
Whether or not we find yourself getting one thing like, say, System Shock Techniques or not, the way forward for the sequence is wanting constructive at Nightdive Studios. Given the sturdy essential reception the remake has garnered to date, it is fairly unlikely the crew is completed with the franchise simply but.
