Tencent Confirmed as New System Shock 3 Developer

OtherSide Entertainment confirms the recent indication that Tencent is taking over development of System Shock 3. Word is: "We are happy to announce that Tencent will be taking the System Shock franchise forward. As a smaller Indie studio, it had been challenging for us to carry the project on our own. We believe Tencent’s deep capabilities and expertise as a leading game company will bring the franchise to new heights." In a related note, A follow-up tweet from Stephen Kick (thanks VG247) confirms that despite this change, Nightdive Studios still retains the rights to the System Shock franchise, saying  "Nightdive owns the System Shock franchise and IP, please don't spread misinformation."

I don't know why people think that Tencent will do a good job with this. Why would they know anything about malevolent and censorious government-designed AI/cybersystem that seeks to subjugate or destroy human opposition?

Ohhhhhhh...

Hahaha! Life imitating art has come full circle.

Not sure what your reason is but it's definitely a 'no-buy' for me. I'm tired of throwing money at China.
So you just purchased your last nail, air conditioner, console, microwave oven, screw, automobile, tv, monitor, over the counter med, computer, hand tool, cell phone, clothing, tablet etc..
Or is it video games where you draw the line.

I draw the line wherever I can. Realistically, no, I can't live a comfortable life by avoiding the "Made in China" label entirely. If there's an opportunity to buy American or Canadian that's my first choice assuming the likely higher price is reasonable.

A mask is not a political statement.
It's an IQ test.
It's a compassion test.
It's a decency test.
It's a social responsibility test.

Newsflash, no one cares.

Tencent has invested loads of money into different companies. If their support helps SS3 get made, I'm all for it.

Do you know what game company Tencent owns 80% of, yet still left it alone largely? Grinding Gear Games. You may recognize them from a slightly popular game called Path of Exile.

Not everything they touch becomes terrible.

My hope is that because development is fairly far along, that this will end up being a straight up single player experience, and we'll get a decent game untarnished by Tencent's usual monetization schemes (not to single out Tencent, as all the large publishers do this). After this game, I suspect Tencent will try and come out with a more MT-lootboxy game that uses the IP.
To prevent CV-19, avoid the Serious Seven: weddings, funerals, faith-based activities, bars, gyms, house gatherings and other small events.
