Secret BioShock Game Reportedly in Development

Share

It sounds like 2K Games' dormant BioShock series could be making a long overdue comeback soon, with a so-called "top-secret studio" now working on an unannounced new entry in the series. Kotaku reports that many Hangar 13 employees tried to climb aboard Parkside in the wake of the studio's decline, but most were unable to find a slot. A new report suggests that a new game in the series is now in development, but is top secret at the moment.

Tucked away in a report by Kotaku's Jason Schreier detailing troubles at Mafia 3 developer Hangar 13, remnants of the broken-up team have apparently been funnelled into working on a BioShock title, while some have left the company entirely.

Whilst the following is a stretch, signs are pointing at the secret studio being made up of Hanger 13 and BioShock-affiliated 2K Marin members. And while it was a good game, it never reached the heights of the original that came before it.

Vinesh was simply too hot to handle since the beginning, having wrapped 10 points to her kitty by the end of the first period. Sumit defeated Pakistan's Tayab Raza 10-4 in a dramatic bout.

While nothing has been (officially) announced, Schreier has confirmed the presence of a BioShock title on the horizon, backed up by anecdotal evidence of hush-hush talk when the topic of a new title would inevitably crop up among staff.

BioShock is one of 2K Games' most important properties, but there hasn't been much rumbling about where the series will go next. Mafia III was published by 2K Games, owners of the BioShock franchise and publisher of all previous BioShock titles. "Word got out, though", the article continues, "that it was in fact a new game in one of the most interesting shooter franchises of the past decade: BioShock".
