Swedish game company Starbreeze has gone through with the resale of the publishing rights for System Shock 3 back to OtherSide Entertainment.
Starbreeze took to its website to announce the sale to visitors, noting that it would be reimbursing costs for anything the company had accused as a result of the issues during the game's development.
There's no monetary information as far as how much Starbreeze will receive thanks to the sale, but when it first snagged System Shock 3 in 2017, the company vowed to invest $12 million to help bring the game to PC and other platforms. It will be recouping the development costs it originally financed for OtherSide Entertainment.
"I believe this is the best solution for us, although it is sad that we cannot complete the project with OtherSide," said Starbreeze's current acting CEO, Mikael Nermark.
Starbreeze is in financial straits at the moment, as the company's administrators are currently looking for a way to secure some type of solution to dig them out of debt. They're still completing new deals and looking for partnerships, but this is only one part of the equation. It remains to be seen how much this will end up helping the company along in the future, but we'll see in the coming months whenever Starbreeze decides to divulge additional information.
Meanwhile, the future of System Shock 3 remains a bit uncertain. Hopefully this isn't a setback that will affect the game's eventual release, as we can't wait to see where the series goes next. Though we've heard talk of what System Shock 3 could entail if it ever gets off the ground, things like this don't make us very hopeful for what's still to come. The world certainly needs more System Shock, though, so we'll be following this saga to the very end.
