System Shock remaster, originally announced as an Xbox and PC exclusive, is now said to release for the PS 4 as well, as announced by developer Nightdive Studios on the Playstation blog. Sony has partnered up with the studio in order to bring the game to their beloved platform.
The game was announced as a Kickstarter project last month, with a crowdfunding target of USD 900,000. Since then, old and new fans alike have pledged more than $1 million at time of writing, with people who’ve put in $50 and more getting closed beta access. For the Xbox and PC, the game is targeting a December 2017 launch.
The project directorm Jason Fader, wrote in a kickstarter update, “After we saw the overwhelming demand for PS4, we reshuffled our priorities and focused on talking to Sony about making that happen,” He goes on to say, “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.”
The development team has come a long way since announcing the project, growing to include experienced designers like Chris Avellone from the Fallout franchise.
