System Shock 2 is widely regarded as one of the greatest games ever made, but considering it came out in 1999, many people had begun to lose hope of ever seeing a sequel. Until now, that is.

Otherside Entertainment, a newer studio focused on resurrecting old game franchises, has a countdown timer on their official website set to reveal the existence of System Shock 3. . . only, the page meant to unveil the game is already live.

This is exciting news, especially for fans of cyberpunk shooters (a much-underrepresented genre), as Otherside has several members of the original System Shock‘s now defunct Looking Glass Studios on board. Unfortunately, there’s no word yet on whether Ken Levine — the legendary game designer who worked on both System Shock 2 and its spiritual successor Bioshock — is involved or not. Hopefully we’ll find out more details once that countdown timer reaches zero.
