System Shock Remake Release On Hold As Dev Admits Mistakes

Nichole VegaFeb 19, 2018

The game has over 21,000 backers on Kickstarter and $1.3 million in funding, but after failing to meet its December 2017 deadline, the title has been delayed further due to the company losing scope of the project. We are taking a break.

Kick wants fans to know that a hiatus does not mean the end for the project: "We are taking a break, but NOT ending the project". When pressed for a timeline, Kuperman estimated the game's release at "18 to 24 months" from now.

Nightdive originally created its remake in the Unity engine, but switched to the Unreal Engine a year ago. Regardless, this may well be considered a major blow to those looking to see the original System Shock return in glorious fashion and no doubt another reminder as to the risks involved with crowdfunding platforms such as Kickstarter. "System Shock is going to be completed and all of our promises fulfilled", wrote Kick. We a completely new game.

"As the budget grew, we began a long series of conversations with potential publishing partners", said Kick. According to Nightdive Studios CEO, Stephen Kick, the remake that was planned to be a remaster but turned into a remake and is no longer developed in Unity but in Unreal Engine 4, needs a team reassessment in regards to its path. Hopefully Nightdive Studios will reemerge soon with a concrete plan. While games such as Doom have stayed the test of time, System Shock did not age well, and requires a great deal of effort to get into (convoluted controls, a very 90s style user interface, and appalling graphics) - hence the excitement around a remaster.

The initial response to the perceived System Shock reboot from Nightdive Studios was initially met with astounding reception. We. strayed from the core concepts of the original title.

"Ultimately the responsibility for the decisions rests with me", the post continued.

The team raised just $1.3 million for the project; an amount that certainly won't carry a full team through the production of an ambitious RPG remake project such as System Shock.

Night Dive Studios provided an update on the project's official Kickstarter page that the upcoming System Shock remake from the studio has been put on hold following developmental difficulties and financial constraints.
