The System Shock remake will also make it to PS4

But not until Q1 2018

With a week of Kickstarter fundraising left to go for the System Shock remake, Nightdive Studios has a pleasant surprise for PlayStation gamers -- the sci-fi action-RPG is coming to PlayStation 4 "around Q1 2018." That's in addition to the already-confirmed PC and Xbox One releases scheduled for the tail end of 2017, and this isn't a stretch goal crowdfunders will have to help meet. It's happening.

"When we launched this Kickstarter, supporting PS4 was a possibility, but we hadn't started talking to Sony just yet about it," wrote project director Jason Fader. "We were all focused on wrapping the demo up and prepping the Kickstarter. We already had strong contacts at Microsoft from prior projects, so supporting Xbox One was less of an unknown. After we saw the overwhelming demand for PS4, we reshuffled our priorities and focused on talking to Sony about making that happen. After a few weeks and lotttts of emails, we are officially on track for bringing System Shock to the PS4! No stretch goal for it. We're adding it in as a thank you to our backers that put their faith in us."

With a funding goal of $900K, the game's Kickstarter has brought in close to $1.1 million so far. According to Fader, "Supporting more platforms will cost us more time/money since ensuring a game functions smoothly and relatively bug-free is different from platform to platform. The more were able to raise, the better the game will be. Please tell your friends about us, share this news about the PS4 support, and help us make the amazing game you all want."

I'm glad to see folks embrace this project and I hope those console ports turn out well. For the time being, you can preview System Shock with a free pre-alpha PC demo available through Humble, GOG.com, and Steam.
