BEACON TRANSCRIPT – Hold on tight to your wallets and gaming rig, because the spam is about to hit the fan. Otherside Entertainment has recently declared that System Shock 3 is under development and that they have taken ample steps in order to ensure that the game will be a jaw dropper. Warren Spector will take the reins of System Shock 3 after he completes his semester at Austin.
In the last couple of months, there have been many rumors regarding System Shock’s revival. According to some of them, the game’s sequel was to be designed by Nightshade studios. But it seems that the dev team from Nightshade had a change of heart and, long story made short, Otherside Entertainment managed to snag the project.
But the game dev didn’t want to design a good game, they wanted something special. And so, they’ve decided to ask the help of none other than Warren Spector, a veteran in the art of game design, who is currently holding a game design 101 class at the Austin University. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the name, Spector is considered to be the father of the modern horror survival games.
Among other projects, Spector is best known for the Deus Ex series and System Shock. When approached by Otherside Entertainment, Spector immediately said yes. According to his statements, the first installment of the game was a wonderful experience and he could not refrain from embarking on yet another gruesome adventure featuring the lone soldier of fortune and the psychopathic artificial intelligence called SHODAN.
Moreover, the veteran game designer also listed System Shock as the most fulfilling experience in his game design career. So, until now we have a team of junior developers standing ready to release the sequel of probably the most complex computer game ever created, with the help of the man who managed to inspire so many game designers.
This is a true recipe for success. But before Spector is able to join the other at Otherside Entertainment, he must first complete his semester at the University. After that, he will be able to take up the full-time job offered by Otherside.
Recently, Otherside entertainment announced that Warren Spector will take the reins of System Shock 3. This is sure to guarantee that the sequel of the game will as great as its forbearers.
