System Shock 2 headed to digital distributors at last – rumour

Monday, 11th February 2013 23:29 GMT By Brenna Hillier

System Shock 2 has escaped years of licensing horror, a report on FleshEatingZipper claims. Citing an anonymous source, the site claims a release on is expected “within days”, with a Steam release to follow. A trailer is expected shortly, and the version will include extra bundled content. A new company called Night Dive Studios has been linked with the rumour; it apparently specialises in “finding classic, abandoned and forgotten PC games and bringing them back into the hands of gamers”. The critically-acclaimed System Shock 2 was designed by Ken Levine, and BioShock is considered its successor in many ways. It was published by EA but a tangle of licensing has kept it from re-release.

Thanks, EvilAvatar.

    If true this is great news, I have been totally unable to buy a legal copy of this game for many years. I missed its original launch.

    @1 Max Payne, I doubt they will update it at all, but there is a mod that increases the model poly count, hopefully it will be compatible with the new release.

    So the rumour is only regarding System Shock 2? Not the first game?
