Unannounced Bioshock game in development

Unannounced Bioshock game in development”

Back in 2013, former Gears of War producer Rod Fergusson, who had joined Irrational Games to assist with the development of BioShock Infinite, announced he was heading up a new studio for 2K Games located in the Bay Area.

Meanwhile, it is believed that what remains of Hangar 13 will be moving onto new things post-Mafia 3. Some left voluntarily; others were let go or asked to move.

But, back to BioShock - what would you like out of a potential new entry? Presumably that means Ken Levine won't be involved in the project, as he's now working on an original project at his new 2K-backed studio Ghost Story Games.

This is a massive scoop for Kotaku, and wonderful news for the industry.

Where do we think the Lighthouse will take us this time?

According to Kotaku's report, "If anyone from Hangar 13 tried to strike up a conversation with them, they'd say, 'Oh, we can't really talk about it, '" said one person familiar with the studio. "It was all very tight-lipped".

In the midst of all this confusion, some employees of Hangar 13 couldn't help but look with envy at their neighbors. The series was released in a collection on the current generation of consoles, but we have yet to get a brand new BioShock game for PS4 and Xbox One. Between Mafia III's mediocre reviews and Rhapsody's constant shifts, some members on the Hangar 13 team were desperately hoping to move next door.

Since then, the studio has "floundered" as it tries to figure out what its next project should be, with ideas like a fourth Mafia set in Las Vegas during the 70s, a spy game set in Berlin in the 80s, and a music-fueled action game ultimately being abandoned.

In numerous financial briefings over the last fiscal year, Take-Two has stated 2K Games has a "highly anticipated new title" from one of its major franchises in the works. "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". 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. Are you excited by this report?
