Starbreeze won’t be publishing System Shock 3 anymore as System Shock 3’s developer Otherside Entertainment has bought the publishing rights from Starbreeze who acquired the rights back in 2017.
Otherside Entetainment shared this message on Twitter:
“We have very much enjoyed working with Starbreeze on System Shock 3. They’ve been a great partner. However, in light of Starbreeze’s current situation, we decided together that it would be best for us to go our separate ways for now. We wish them the best of luck.
OtherSide is rolling forward with System Shock 3. Warren Spector has built a great team and the game is more than halfway completed.
At its core, it already feels like a System Shock game, while at the same time introducing new elements to the franchise. As the original creators of the game, we want to see this game made as much as our fans do.
Look for more information about System Shock 3 soon.”
