System Shock is a 1994 first-person adventure developed by Looking Glass Technologies and Origin Systems. The game is set aboard a space station in a cyberpunk version of 2072. Players assume the role of a nameless hacker who attempts to take down the Sentient Hyper-Optimized Data Access Network, better known as SHODAN.
A few months ago, Nightdive Studios announced that System Shock Remastered would launch in 2020 because of development problems. Head of Nightdive Studios, Stephen Kick, said that the developer needed to take a step away and get the project back on track because the team attempted to do too much. Since then, we haven't heard much about the game, but a few days ago the team showcased new footage from the System Shock: Adventure Alpha. The game looks great and seems like a return to the original vision.
It's great to see that System Shock Remastered is back on track. The uncertainty was a cause for concern to many backers because, when games are usually put on hiatus, they sometimes never release, as a studio closes down or there are other problems. Hopefully the title will be a polished experience when it launches on Xbox One and other platforms in 2020.
