Starbreeze is probably best known for being the publishers of the massively successful Payday series and Dead by Daylight, and now they’ll be bringing the upcoming System Shock 3 to console and PC.

System Shock 3 was already in development at Otherside Entertainment with gaming veteran Warren Spector (Epic Mickey, Deus Ex) leading the project. Starbreeze has stated that they will adding $12 million to the project, a deal that will allow Otherside to retain all rights to System Shock 3 and benefit from Starbreeze’s marketing and promotional arm, in a similar fashion to Double Fine’s deal with Psychonauts 2.

No release date has been slated for the upcoming RPG/Shooter. Meanwhile a remake of the original System Shock is currently in the works for PS4, Xbox One and PC from Nightdive Studios which is currently set for a 2018 release.
