Starbreeze has sold back the publishing rights to System Shock 3 to developer OtherSide Entertainment, the company announced. The company will be fully reimbursed for the costs it has had in connection with the development of the game.
Since acquiring the publishing rights to System Shock 3 in 2017, the company has partly financed its development.
“I believe this is the best solution for us, although it is sad that we cannot complete the project with OtherSide,” Starbreeze acting CEO Mikael Nermark said in a press release. “System Shock 3 is a fantastic title developed in cooperation with the industry legend Warren Spector and I am looking forward to seeing the game released.”
Starbreeze maintains the publishing rights to the upcoming Psychonauts 2 from Doublefine Productions and 10 Crowns from Mohawk Games.
A release date for System Shock 3 has yet to be announced.
