Ken Levine on System Shock 3

During the Irrational Games panel at PAX East in Boston this weekend, a fan asked Irrational boss Ken Levine, ‘is there hope for a System Shock 3?’ Levine answered.

“You know, life is — get ready for my fortune cookie answer — life is like long and complicated and you never know what’s going to happen,” he said.

The fan cut-in: “Sounds like you’re talking about sex.” The crowd laughed.

Levine continued: “We have an obviously huge emotional attachment to [System Shock]…. I made that game as a fan, we [Irrational] made that game as fans.

“There would be a lot of moving pieces for that [System Shock 3] to happen. So I can’t say.”

Aw, poo.
