Finally, they have decided to add the remake of System Shock in the PS4, along with the Xbox One and PC. For those of you who don’t know what this game is, it’s was a very solid shooter that was released in 1994 by a company named Looking Glass Technologies. It’s setting was of a cyberpunk depiction of 2072, with you playing as a hacker trying to foil the plans of a A.I known as SHODAN. Not many people are aware of the first System Shock, as more people are more familiar with the Sequel System Shock 2.
Jason Fader from NightDiveStudios had this statement released in regards to how the remake made the jump to be produced on PS4:
“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.”
