Warren Spector confirms Otherside last worked on System Shock 3 in 2019, and that ‘NFTs are ridiculous’

 So far, System shocked page 3 on the Otherside website, and its Twitter avatar serial villain Shodan did not help. But earlier this month, Warren Spector (Otherside’s commercial director) announced that his team was working on a brand new immersive sim. A new interview with gamesbeatSpector reiterated that Otherside is not working on System Shock 3, saying, “Tencent is pushing the franchise forward. They have to say what they want to say.” He also explained that his team worked on it in 2018 and 2019: “That’s it.”

Speaking about the new project

Spector said that the previously released image of the whale and stingray riders “represents an aspect of what the game is about. It will be a pretty deep game. Do what we ask you to do. This whale is part of this array of gaming levels.” Spector also mentioned that a separate team at Otherside is working with Wizards of the Coast on a licensed Dungeons & Dragons game. Another person’s job page says, “We’re assembling a team for a big job in the Forgotten Realms” over a picture of a halfling trying to escape from xanthan goldfish, and several advertised positions mention “multiplayer gameplay systems,” but that’s about it.

As tempting as it is to speculate in a multiplayer stealth game about groups of rogues doing heists based on these clues, it isn’t that much. “The D&D game is going well,” was all Spector said. “You have to ask them for sure, but I think the Wizards are happy with what we’re doing.” Like many people involved in cyberpunk classics, it turns out he’s not a fan. “That’s where I’m going to have problems,” Spector said. “I want people to give me hell for what I’m about to say, but I don’t think I care. NFTs are ridiculous.  Who thinks this is a good idea?
