System Shock 3 confirmed, could launch as terrifying VR title

It’s official: System Shock 3 is in development. As if System Shock 2 wasn’t scary enough, its sequel may launch as a VR-supported title that brings you even closer to the bloodied Hybrid hordes.

Otherside Entertainment, the studio behind System Shock 3, recently launched a teaser site that strongly suggested a sequel was in the works. The full System Shock 3 moniker is now on there, alongside an image of System Shock 2’s psychopathic AI antagonist, SHODAN.
