How about this, then? According to a report by Kotaku, 2K Games has hit the greenlight on a new BioShock game. According to the report, which mainly focuses on Hangar 13’s Mafia III, 2K Games has given the go ahead for a new entry in the popular first-person series to be made – right next door to Hangar 13, no less.
Details are scant at the moment and apparently the game is very early on in production. In speaking with anonymous sources at Hangar 13, Kotaku learned that many developers over at the Mafia III studio are hoping to move across to the new team being formed to create the new BioShock.
“They’re trying to be really smart about figuring out what the core thing is,” an anonymous source said. “They’re careful about not falling into the same problem every studio has, where they have too many people and nothing for them to do.”
So there’s a new BioShock game in production, but what about poor old Ken Levine? He’s the chap who started the franchise and got it to the mainstream, but there’s no mention of his name anywhere. Would it be a true BioShock without the man who started it all? Who knows. From the sounds of it the game is still very, very early on in production, so don’t expect any trailers or screenshots anytime soon, never mind intimate details about the game itself.
