OtherSide Entertainment Drops System Shock 3 Development; Chinese Tencent Now Holds the Reins
Tencent has thus acquired the rights for development of a sequel to the System Shock franchise – Nightdive Studios, holders of the IP that licensed it to OtherSide Entertainment, have already announced the change in carrier for the sequel hopes. OtherSide places their faith in Tencent’s “deep capabilities and expertise as a leading video game company will bring the franchise to new heights”. Whether or not that means starting from scratch is up in the air right now, but one thing is certain: the game will take even longer than expected to release. A blue screen of death for Shodan, pending a reboot.
