OtherSide Entertainment's System Shock 3 is the sequel to the 1999 horror game System Shock 2, and publisher Starbreeze AB has announced that it will be publishing the game upon release, as well as investing $12 million USD into bringing the game to PC and other platforms.
"System Shock is one of those iconic franchises in the history of games that still gets my blood going and Mr. Spector is one of the founding fathers of the modern action RPG" said Bo Andersson-Klint, Starbreeze's CEO. "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".
"We are thrilled to be partnering with Starbreeze for System Shock 3," added OtherSide's CEO Paul Neurath. "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."
Starbreeze can recoup 120% of the full investment, including marketing costs, and their share of the revenues will be 50% after this happens. OtherSide Entertainment will retain 100% of intellectual property relating to the game, however.
