Rumour: New BioShock In Development at 'Secret' 2K Games Studio

Adjust Comment Print

The new rumblings on the franchise stem from a a Kotaku report on Mafia III, entitled "How The Makers Of Mafia III Lost Their Way".

The fact a new BioShock game is now in development should come as a shock to absolutely no one. "Word got out, though, that it was in fact a new game in one of the most interesting shooter franchises of the past decade: BioShock". The low morale brought about by those internal struggles, notes a developer, has been exacerbated by the knowledge that a new game in such a prestigious series was being developed just down the hall. It's only been mentioned that some developers from Hanger 13 have joined a new studio and they are working in a new project code-named "Parkside". "It was all very tight-lipped".

It's unclear exactly how far along this new BioShock project actually is, so don't expect 2K to issue any announcements soon.

"If anyone from Hangar 13 tried to strike up a conversation with them, they'd say, 'Oh, we can't really talk about it, '" a source close to the studio told Kotaku. There's a high probability this title is Borderlands 3, but BioShock also fits the bill.

Search for woman in murder investigation has extended to Florida
A tipline has been established for anyone who has had any recent contact with Riess or who has any information on her whereabouts. Authorities say she has fled southwest Florida and may now be in the Corpus Christi, Texas area.

Take-Two is never one to be drawn on information regarding unannounced titles.

During this time, the studio was going through some major hardships both with sales and massive layoffs.

The original run of BioShock saw the release of three games, BioShock, BioShock 2, and BioShock Infinite, and the series has been sitting quietly since Infinite's release 2013. He claims that a new BioShock is in development at a "top-secret" 2K studio located in the San Francisco Bay area.

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. What little evidence is available at present though, seems to point in that direction.
