The System Shock Remaster is currently scheduled for release on PS4, PC, and Xbox One in 2018. The game was funded via Kickstarter, and raised over $1,300,000 on the crowdfunding website. Nightdive has since launched a number of stretch goals for the project, so you can still contribute to funding if you fancy it.
Released back in 1994, the original System Shock was developed by Looking Glass Technology and remains one of the most significant first-person titles in videogame history. A sequel was released in 1999, and involved future BioShock creator Ken Levine with Irrational Studios at the helm.
