System Shock, the cult favorite PC horror franchise, is ready for new life incredibly soon, FleshEatingZipper has learned. According to our sources, a â€œnew development/publishing studio will be handling the releaseâ€, spearheaded with a new digital release of System Shock 2 on GOG within days, the perfect starting point for any classic PC gaming connoisseur. A Steam release is said to follow at a later, undetermined date. While the complexities of such a new deal were not revealed, for many years following the dissolution of Looking Glass Studios, the legal rights to the series have been up in the air and long-time fans have had to resort to abandonware or other, illicit means to acquire their rad cyberpunk dosage of Shodanâ€™s madness. No longer!
UPDATE: This article had previously stated a Steam release within a month, but our sources said it was not quite that soon. A new trailer for the release is supposed to be dropping in the near future and weâ€™ll update you as soon as we get our hands on it! The extra content being bundled as part of the GOG release will be â€œwell worth the priceâ€, weâ€™re told.
Let's hope the rumors are true, a digital re-release of the title has been long overdue, and certainly not for lack of demand.
