Deus Ex creator will lead System Shock 3 development

Warren Spector joins OtherSide

Warren Spector, the man behind Deux Ex and Epic Mickey, as well as the producer on the original System Shock, has joined OtherSide entertainment, the studio announced today:

“Warren has acted as a Creative Advisor to OtherSide since the studio’s inception. Following the end of this semester’s classes at UT Austin, he will transition into a full-time position as one of OtherSide’s Studio Directors. Warren will continue to help in a creative capacity on Underworld Ascendant and, later this year, ramp up and lead the team developing System Shock 3.”

System Shock 3 was announced in December by OtherSide, a development studio helmed by former System Shock designer Tim Stellmach, who was also Lead Designer on Thief: The Dark Project and Thief II: The Metal Age.

Spector offered in a statement, “Working on System Shock was one of the most fulfilling things I’ve done in my career and it’s hard to describe how much I’m looking forward to sharing with players what SHODAN has been up to since the last game was released.”
