There shouldn't be a System Shock 3.

Doesn't Tencent just do lowest common denominator mobile games (for a loose definition of "game")?

Call of Duty Mobile is at least partly TenCent, not a lowly game. Google still knows what I'll eat for breakfast tomorrow. Not too worried about China knowing my K/D ratio.

Tencent owns Funcom (Conan, The Secret World), Supercell (Clash of Clans), Riot (League of Legends) and nearly half of Epic (Fortnite, Unreal)

Subby made me laugh this morning.

Also, I have made peace that Prey will probably be better than System Shock 3 or SS1 remaster.

/if you haven't bought Prey but loved SS1/SS2, do yourself a favor, then never look at coffee mugs and soda cans the same way

Prey(2017), not Prey(2006) which is an unrelated (Though still good) game.

Tendent own stakes in more than half of the companies that make videogames.

They splashed the cash. A lot.

Prey (2017) was almost genius.

I mean, it had flaws, but it was a worthy SS3.
