Starbreeze has picked up the publishing rights to System Shock 3, which is currently down for a PC release.
And in a brand new blog post on the System Shock 3 website, Starbreeze said that it’s invested $12 million to bring the game to PC and “other platforms”.
It’s not clear which platforms the publisher is referring to, but Xbox One and PS4 ports are most likely.
A Nintendo Switch version is harder to imagine, although Starbreeze is listed as one of the publishers working with the console.
System Shock 3 is being directed by Warren Spector, whose previous releases include the original System Shock and System Shock 2, as well as Thief: The Dark Project and Deus Ex.
It’s currently without a release date.
“We’re greatly looking forward to bringing System Shock 3 to players world wide in our collaboration with Otherside Entertainment and Warren Spector’s team.
“I’ll be first in line to play.”
The views were echoed by OtherSide CEO Paul Neurath, who said: “We are thrilled to be partnering with Starbreeze for System Shock 3.
“They truly get games and gamers, and have been able to translate that understanding into a robust publishing business, and build thriving gaming communities around their franchises.”

Overwatch developer Blizzard hasn’t ruled out the possibility of the game appearing on Nintendo Switch, with director Jeff Kaplan saying that the company is open minded about new platforms.
“I’m loving the Switch!” Kaplan told users on Reddit. “My second favourite gaming platform of all time is the 3DS.
“Getting OW on the Switch is very challenging for us. But we’re always open minded about exploring possible platforms.”
While it’s by no means confirmation, the fact that Blizzard is even considering an Overwatch port is good news for the Nintendo Switch.
