The announcement of System Shock 3 was cause enough for excitement, never mind the involvement of industry legend Warren Spector as creative director and studio manager. Now, Otherside Entertainment has announced more of the development team, featuring veterans of titles including Deus Ex, BioShock, Thief, and the original System Shock.
Sheldon Pacotti, lead writer on Deus Ex with 20 years of experience across other titles, comes aboard as design director. Art director Arturo Pulecio has a decade and a half of experience largely across MMO titles like Lord of the Rings Online and Warhammer Online. Tech director Jason Hughes is a veteran of Wing Commander and the Spector-led Epic Mickey at Disney.

Robb Waters will provide concept art, having previously worked on System Shock and its spiritual successor, BioShock. The original title’s game director, Doug Church, will join Otherside as a creative consultant. Finally, the hiring announcement features actor Terri Brosius, who will reprise the role of the evil AI SHODAN.
It’s an impressive crew with an impressive pedigree. Details on System Shock 3 are currently scarce--we don’t even have a release window yet--but we’re sure to hear more soon. (Thanks,.)
