If you’ve been following System Shock and waiting for its release, you might have already known that the game isn’t coming in the near future. To give you an exact time frame, the publishing studio has come up with a release date of Q1, 2020!
Yes, you heard it right, the System Shock fever is down for now as the game might be receiving something bigger than what we expected. Nightdive Studios, the developers of the game have run into an all-too-common problem in game dev: “feature creep”.
The problem is quite natural and this is what Nightdive Studios’ CEO, Stephen Kick had to say in a recent interview with PC Gamer.
Our intention is to ship exactly the game that was promised, with as much of the features that were promised as we can, in a timeframe that will get it out as fast as we can. Our expectation is probably Q1 of 2020.
Interestingly, System Shock has already generated $1.3 million on Kickstarter so we are expecting something special to come after the two years period!
