System Shock Remake Gets PlayStation and Xbox Release Date

The long-awaited remake of System Shock from Prime Matter and developer Nightdive Studios finally has a release date for PlayStation and Xbox consoles. The developer recently confirmed that the game will be coming to Sony and Microsoft’s platforms on 21 May 2024 after initially releasing on PC in May 2023.

The System Shock remake originally launched on PC via Steam and Epic Games Store on 30 May 2023 to very positive reviews across the board. One full year later and it’s finally hitting PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S consoles. It’s a ground-up remake of the classic 1994 sci-fi action game developed by LookingGlass Technologies, which spawned a wave of renowned games heavily influenced by it including BioShock, Prey and Deus Ex.

The official description of the System Shock remake from Steam reads:

“System Shock is the fully fledged remake of the ground breaking original from 1994, combining cult gameplay with all-new HD visuals, updated controls, an overhauled interface and all-new sounds & music; it even has the original voice actor of SHODAN, one of gaming’s most iconic villains. Witness the rebirth of one of the greatest and most influential games ever created.”

Nightdive Studios teased on the official announcement that console players can look forward to “an expanded ending, a new female hacker protagonist, and more.” The game will also be available both digitally and physically, though it will only receive a physical release on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S. PS4 and Xbox One players will likely need to purchase it digitally.
