In another nice bit of news today, Starbreeze (makers of Payday 2, Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons and The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena) has announced they will be publishing the upcoming System Shock sequel, injecting nearly $16 million into the project.
According to the release, the deal allows Starbreeze to "recoup 120% of its full investment including marketing costs". They'll also get a 50% revenue share with Otherside Entertainment once their investment is recouped, although Otherside retains full control of the IP going forward.
There's not much else to say about System Shock 3 at this point, other than Warren Spector being the game's director. That was announced last year, however, and not much has been said about the game since then.
But more investment is a good thing, especially if you're a fan of the original games. Night Dive Studios are still working on a remake of the original System Shock as well, although that isn't due out until next year. Some new pre-alpha footage of the game popped up earlier this month though, and if you missed that you can check it out here.
