Fans of the classic sci-fi horror game System Shock have been eagerly anticipating the remake of the original game, which has been in development since 2016. However, it looks like the wait for the highly anticipated game just got a lot longer for PlayStation players.

Publisher Prime Matter and developer Nightdive Studios have announced that the System Shock remake has been indefinitely delayed on PS5 and PS4 consoles, and will no longer be releasing in 2021 as originally planned. This news comes as a disappointment to many PS5 and PS4 players who were looking forward to experiencing the updated version of the iconic game.

The delay of the System Shock remake on PS5 and PS4 consoles is a blow to the game's many fans, who have been eagerly awaiting its release. The game was originally slated to release in 2020, but was delayed multiple times, with the latest delay pushing the release date even further back.

According to the developers, the delay is due to "unforeseen issues" that have arisen during development. While the team didn't go into specifics, they did say that they are working hard to resolve the issues and bring the game to PS5 and PS4 players as soon as possible.

While the System Shock remake may be delayed on PS5 and PS4 consoles, it is still set to release on PC on May 30th, 2022. The game has been in development for several years, and promises to be a faithful update to the original classic.

For those looking to save a few bucks on the upcoming System Shock remake, it has been announced that players who purchase the enhanced port of its sequel, System Shock 2, will receive the remake for free. This is a great deal for fans of the series who are looking to experience both games on their platform of choice.

Despite the delay on PS5 and PS4 consoles, there is still plenty to be excited about when it comes to the System Shock franchise. Nightdive Studios has dropped a first-look teaser for System Shock 2: Enhanced Edition, which promises to bring the classic game up to modern standards while retaining the original gameplay and atmosphere.

In addition to the enhanced edition of System Shock 2, the developers have also announced that the remake of the original game has gone gold. This means that the principal development of the game is complete, and it is now in the final stages of testing and polishing before its release on PC.

While the delay of the System Shock remake on PS5 and PS4 consoles is certainly disappointing, it's worth noting that this isn't the first time the game has been delayed. The game was originally planned for release in 2018, but was pushed back due to the scope of the project and the desire to make sure it was a faithful update to the original.

It's also worth noting that System Shock 3, the long-awaited sequel to the original game, has also been in development for several years and has seen its fair share of delays and setbacks. The development of the third game in the series has been troubled, with the original developer, OtherSide Entertainment, losing the rights to the franchise in 2020.

Overall, while the delay of the System Shock remake on PS5 and PS4 consoles is certainly disappointing, it's important to remember that game development is a complex process, and delays are not uncommon. Fans of the franchise can still look forward to the release of the remake on PC, as well as the enhanced edition of System Shock 2 and the eventual release of System Shock 3.
