Both System Shocks and the thief series are still some of my fave. FP on the pc ever.After the mention of wanting a SS 3 before xmas i had a bit of a search around and there seems to be a bit of mystery over who owns the rights to the name.From what i gather it is up in the air.Given todays tech i would love another one in space maybe a carry on from the end of the second one.

How on Earth the rights to the name and the development ever got seperated I have no idea but it looks like with them split up no one can ever actually make a Systems Shock 3 (although Gamesradar have an interesting article on games that changed in development and Dead Space apparently started as SS3)

While i think DS was good it didn't have the magic ingredients of Ken and his team.I can't see EA giving the name up despite not being able to do anything with it.According to the article i posted the rights to make the game are in the hands of an insurance company and the reason they were split up in the first place was a "screw you" to EA.

Whilst I know SS2 has a lot of love out there (I've never played it myself) do we even need a third? As you say the magic is with every intelligent gamers permissable man crush rather than the franchise name and if he's planning on mixing up future Bioshock's we may well end up with a scifi Bioshock in the future to fill the gap.
