    Bingo! Maybe they're trying to increase interest now to create hype/awareness, after the admitted development issues.

    But that's the whole problem, what they should be doing is bucking down and trying to get a good product to market rather than create hype over something that seems a last minute edition to the project just to create hype.

    Except xbone which has nothing that some other platform doesn't do better :P switch has exclusives and is portable, ps4 has bloodborne, god of war, uncharted, pc has the best power, frame rate, cheapest games and free online. Xbone has a mediocre halo game and a few exclusives no one wants that's got bad ratings.

    I suppose since this is a remake and you apparently don't know what a port is anymore, we might as well just have fun with it. Sony Portstation, PortBox One. System Shock was originally only on PC.

    All you do is bitch about every single Switch announcement, couldn't even keep it to the indies. It's getting real played out. Then again maybe you just have nothing worthwhile to contribute so you always fall back to bad habits.

    Damn...you beat me to it.

    Sure, the switch is the most obvious choice, but it's not like android (or iOS, for that matter) is a comedy third (and fourth) option.

    Never played System Shock, nor System Shock 2, but I know of Shodan, and her absolutely batshit crazy voice acting, that's truely spine tingling at times.

    If the remake came to the Switch, I'd most likely get it to finally play it without it looking like a game from 1980 (which it is originally I believe).

    I'm just going to start reporting Reploid's low-effort shitposts from here on out, I recommend you do the same. He's in every Switch thread, and I seriously doubt he even owns a Switch. If he does then he's both a moron and hypocrite, because he shit talks the console constantly.

    Ooh, if System Shock came to the Switch I'd be highly interested. I have the old version on PC already, of course, but a portable version of the remake would feel nice!

    I forgot
    Probably wouldn't matter much anyways, seems like the remake is either not going to release for another couple years after their supposed "2020 release window" or it's gonna be just plain awful because they keep restarting development on the thing because they can't decide whether they want to do a remake or reboot.

    System Shock 2 is not (yet) in the process of being remade. The original source code has been lost, so it cannot just be ported, either.

    ...they lost the source code ._. I hope they fired some over that!
    Seriously that bums me out, but I guess that explains why it's literally never ported to anything and why the "Linux version" is just running a contained version of Wine

    Well the company that owns the games (Night Dive Studios) is not the original developer. They might never have had the original source. The original development studio responsible for the game,Looking Glass Studios, folded. Then the developers went on to create Irrational Games and the Bioshock series.

    Interesting, I actually don't know much history behind the company myself so I guess I should look into them.
    I just know that I enjoyed the hell out of System Shock 2 and I've been bummed by the apparent lack of love for the game. Although I guess this does explain why the game doesn't appear to get much love.

    It was an interesting game. Played it on steam a few years back (learned about the source code being lost as that was the explanation for why the linux version on steam was running in a WINE wrapper).
