Remastered Editions Launch: System Gateway – System Update 2021

We are pleased to announce that the remastered editions of System Gateway and System Update 2021 are now available for purchase across various sales platforms.

On the Null Signal online shop, we are holding a presale for the remastered editions. Due to the need to account for cards for the exchange program as well as regular sales, we’ve found it difficult to forecast the necessary stock. Additionally, with The Automata Initiative releasing later this month, we want to combine shipping for both products. Therefore, if you purchase the remasters from our shop during the presale, you can expect delivery right after The Automata Initiative is released. Normal shipping operations will resume once the presale concludes.

For regions not yet served by our online shop, the remastered editions will be available from our print-on-demand partners at MakePlayingCards and DriveThruCards in the coming days. As the remastered sets become available in different languages, the old sets will be removed from sale. The remastered sets will also be available from our authorized resellers, though they will also not be receiving any stock until after the presale is over. To confirm whether your local authorized reseller will be stocking the remastered editions, contact them directly.


While System Gateway Remastered and System Update 2021 Remastered will be available in most languages within the next few days, some languages are still in the process of being translated. The latter will take a few weeks longer, and the old versions of the sets will remain available in that time.

The status for each language is as follows:

LanguageTranslation Status
Catalan Launching imminently!
French Launching imminently!
German Launching imminently!
Italian Launching imminently!
Portuguese Launching imminently!
Russian (brand new language!) Launching imminently!
Simplified Chinese Launching imminently!
Traditional Chinese Launching imminently!
Japanese Work still in progress
Korean Work still in progress
Polish Work still in progress
Spanish Work still in progress

We will update you on the progress of each translation, and announce it whenever a new one is completed.

Rotation of System Update 2021

In the spirit of complete transparency, we plan to rotate System Update 2021 out of the standard card pool within the coming 1-2 years. As we get closer to the launch of The Automata Initiative, we will provide further details about our plans.

Exchange Program

With the launch of the remastered editions, our product exchange program is now active. To take advantage of it, please follow the instruction on the exchange program page.

Once you’ve sent us an email and the exchange has been approved, you’ll receive an email with a purchase order from our shop. You will be responsible for completing this order and covering the shipping fee. After you complete the purchase order, we’ll ship your cards. Please note, as we won’t have the cards in stock until after the presale finishes, so expect a delivery timeframe of a few weeks.

Thank you for your patience, and for those waiting for this release to get started: welcome to Netrunner.
