Tencent takes over System Shock 3 after hiring Ubisoft and Kojima veterans
The Chinese gaming giant is trying to capture gamers outside of China with internationally appealing titles
It’s been more than four years since System Shock 3 was first announced. But after it lost a publisher last year, the game’s creators now say they’re handing the reins over to Tencent.
System Shock, the original PC classic, came out in 1994. Set in a multilevel space station with a labyrinth of corridors, it was credited for creating a brand new genre of immersive sims. The 1999 System Shock 2 also inspired many horror survival games like the popular 2007 game BioShock.
