Starbreeze Publishing signs OtherSide Entertainment’s System Shock 3
Starbreeze, an independent creator, publisher and distributor of high quality entertainment products, has signed a publishing agreement with Otherside Entertainment regarding the game System Shock 3. Starbreeze will invest $12 million to bring the game to PC and other platforms.
System Shock 3 – The latest in the series of landmark, award-winning games from Otherside Entertainment is in development under the direction of industry legend Warren Spector and a dream team behind such ground breaking games including the original System Shock & System Shock 2, as well as Thief: The Dark Project and Deus Ex.
“System Shock is one of those iconic franchises in the history of games that still gets my blood going and Mr. Spector is one of the founding fathers of the modern action RPG” said Bo Andersson-Klint, Starbreeze CEO. “We’re greatly looking forward to bringing System Shock 3 to players world wide in our collaboration with Otherside Entertainment and Warren Spector’s team. I’ll be first in line to play”.
“We are thrilled to be partnering with Starbreeze for System Shock 3,” said OtherSide’s CEO Paul Neurath. They truly get games and gamers, and have been able to translate that understanding into a robust publishing business, and build thriving gaming communities around their franchises.”
Starbreeze will be able to recoup 120% of its full investment including marketing costs. Starbreeze share of revenues will become 50% after the investment is recouped. Otherside Entertainement will retain 100% of the intellectual property relating to System Shock 3.
System Shock 3 is currently in the early concept stages of development. Fans can go to the game site to receive updates as they become available.
[OLD OP, regarding the System Shock remake kickstarter]
A crowdfunding thing exists. I've been watching the progress of this game for a while (also full disclosure, I've done freelance work for NightDive in the past), and unlike certain other Kickstarters recently, I can at least guarantee that you WILL get a faithful, modern remake of System Shock. Also, yes, that really is Terri Brosius they have back as the voice of SHODAN. The project has Paul Neurath's blessing as well. I don't think he's DIRECTLY involved, but considering Stephen Kick literally handed all the rights to System Shock 3 back to the guy, I'd say he's aware
*edit* They've got Chris Avellone, one of the writers behind Planescape: Torment, editing the original narrative; Rob Waters, the concept artist from the first two Shock games and Bioshock, is doing, well, concept art.
