The fact that Night Dive Studios' crowdfunding campaign for a System Shock remake has slowed down quite significantly after reaching its goal is not exactly a secret. The campaign might very well only reach one or a couple of its stretch goal before its conclusion (so far it has reached none), and there's no doubt that the developers behind it are eager to revitalize it in some way.
That's probably one of the reasons they've been eager to announce that the game is now slated for a release on PlayStation 4 in the hopes that owners of Sony platform might decide to pledge. Quoting from the Kickstarter update:
When we launched this Kickstarter, supporting PS4 was a possibility, but we hadn’t started talking to Sony just yet about it. We were all focused on wrapping the demo up and prepping the Kickstarter. We already had strong contacts at Microsoft from prior projects, so supporting XboxOne was less of an unknown. After we saw the overwhelming demand for PS4, we reshuffled our priorities and focused on talking to Sony about making that happen. After a few weeks and lotttts of emails, we are officially on track for bringing System Shock to the PS4! No stretch goal for it. We’re adding it in as a thank you to our backers that put their faith in us.
Before this announcement, the game was only slated to be released on PC and Xbox One, with Linux and Mac releases tied to stretch goals. We will keep you updated on this Kickstarter campaign, now that its final week has started.
