Otherside Entertainment has announced Tencent will be taking over the System Shock franchise from the independent studio.

This means going forward, the team’s current project System Shock 3 will be handled by Tencent.

“We are happy to announce that Tencent will be taking the System Shock franchise forward,” reads the official statement.

“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.”

Last we heard, System Shock 3 was still in the works, as many members of the team were working from home due to COVID-19 . OtherSide had been a bit silent before then, after an apparent staff exodus from the Austin studio in February which saw key developers leave the studio.

System Shock 3 was first revealed in March 2019 during GDC.
