We'll be sure to let you know about any additional details we receive about this re-release of System Shock 2, so stay tuned for more!

Nightdive Studios are the developer now working on System Shock: Remastered - the complete remake of the first game - and are the owners of the System Shock licence, but they're also known for remastering and re-releasing other classic games too.

Nightdive tweeted out the announcement following a special 20th anniversary stream of the game of Twitch. Now, requests for an Enhanced Edition of System Shock 2 are finally being made a reality and we couldn't be more excited!

Developed at Looking Glass Studios, System Shock 2's lead designer was Ken Levine, who went on to create Bioshock. It'll likely be a few years since the System Shock remake is expected to release in 2020, though that could change at some point. Released back in 2015, the Enhanced Edition of System Shock included updated controls and graphical improvements, among other enhancements.

System Shock 2 was an incredibly important game for the game industry so it's excellent to see it being given some love.
