Wie OtherSide Entertainment nun verkündete, wird Warren Spector zum Entwicklerstudio zurückkehren und an den Arbeiten von Underworld Ascendant sowie System Shock 3 beteiligt sein. Warren Spector war bereits als Produzent, Designer und Director für Spiele wie System Shock, Deus Ex oder Disney Epic Mickey verantwortlich.
„I’m delighted to have Warren stepping up into a director role at OtherSide and helping lead the charge with our innovative approach to gaming“, says Paul Neurath. „I can think of no one better suited to take on this creative challenge. Warren has changed the industry before and will do so again (…) I’ve loved working with students as Director of the Denius-Sams Gaming Academy in the University of Texas‘ Moody College of Communication“, says Warren Spector. „But when the opportunity to have a bigger role in bringing Underworld Ascendant to life, as well as playing in the System Shock universe once again, helping to bring these games to a 21st century audience, I just couldn’t say no. Working on System Shock was one of the most fulfilling things I’ve done in my career and it’s hard to describe how much I’m looking forward to sharing with players what SHODAN has been up to since the last game was released.„
