System Shock Remake gets Windows in March
The Shock of Nightdive remake finally has a release window. It’s been almost seven years since the remake was made available in 2015, but now we know that System Shock will be back in March.
This is according to the System Shock Remake’s Steam Store page which was recently updated to have a March 2023 release window. There have been no announcements confirming the release window; there was also no additional information that could specify when we will be able to play System Shock in March. You can now order a pre-order.

The System Shock remake apparently fell on hard times. In 2015, Nightdive Studios released a successful Kickstarter the following year, retaliating $1.35 million to those who backed it. Originally slated for a 2021 release, Nightdive later pushed that back to 2022, and now it looks like it’s landed in 2023. We can only hope Nightdive sticks to that release window.
The nightdive booth that was at the start of Gamescom, was last heard from by a Nightdive member. The announcement of the new Kickstarter update confirmed that the remake was nominated for several awards, including Best Action Game, Most Wanted PC Game, and helped PLAION win Best Lineup.
System Shock is apparently “in the final stages of polishing and fine-tuning,” writes Nightdive, and a support test is coming soon.
“At that time, it would probably be to release an updated demo on Steam. Once we’ve completed the feedback reviews and a final round of testing will be ready for launch. What time will it be exactly? asked the Nightdive. “When it’s done.”
After the remake, no one knows what would happen to the Shock system. The third game was developed by Otherside Entertainment, but its creator has since moved on to Tencent since the Chinese monopoly bought the rights earlier this summer. Since you haven’t seen a big move for Tencent, don’t expect System Shock 3 anytime soon.
