The legendary game series is back as a new show from Binge.
A System Shock TV show has been announced for the upcoming gaming-focused streaming platform Binge. The new streaming platform will produce a live-action TV series based on the game that will stream exclusively on Binge.com. Allan Ungar, an executive at Binge, will be producing the show with Stephen Kick and Larry Kuperman from Nightdive Studios as executive producers.
The original System Shock was released in 1994 and developed by Looking Glass and its masterminds, Doug Church and Warren Spector. Nightdive Studios now owns the rights to the series and it is now working on a remake of the original game.
"System Shock is an iconic franchise adored by gamers for more than two decades and a series that helped redefine what it meant to play an FPS," Allan Ungar said. "We're excited to do right by the franchise –and the genre –in bringing System Shock to life. Get ready for Shodan."
"I've always believed that a live-action adaptation of System Shock would be the perfect medium to retell the harrowing story of Citadel station and its rogue AI that subjects the crew to unimaginable horror. We're very excited to see the talented team at Binge bring System Shock to life in horrifyingly real and new ways," Stephen Kick said.
