It seems that we haven’t seen the last of Shodan yet.

Night Dive Studios is known not so much for creating their own productions, but for re-issuing classic titles. The games made available by this team include such gems as The 7th Guest, Wizardry 8 and finally the System Shock series. Thanks to Night Dive, which acquired the rights to the franchise, the revamped first part of the latter was released in September under the name System Shock: Enhanced Edition, whereas the cult second part was made available on Steam and GOG.com. As it turns out, it is by no means the end of the studio’s adventure with this cycle. Stephen Kick, the founder of Night Dive Studios, said in an interview with Fast Company that his team is going to create a full-fledged remake of the first System Shock, which will be released on PC and consoles (with no specific devices named). It looks like it’s serious business, as shown by the involvment in the production of Robert Waters, the creator of conceptual art to the original System Shock, who will be behind the visual side of the game.

As if that were not enough, Kick has revealed that the studio is considering developing a third part of the cycle. However, he immediately added that Night Dive doesn’t have the resources to create such a large production. Hence, at the moment the studio is in talks with publishers who might be interested in the project, while Kick and his team are focusing on their main purpose – transferring games from PC to consoles and mobile devices.

At the time, System Shock was an innovative game, but in terms of graphics it looks its age.
