Could the BioShock franchise be making a return? Fans were more than a little shocked when BioShock creator Ken Levine announced the shutdown of Irrational Games in 2014, seemingly bringing the acclaimed series to an end. The BioShock games have sold over 25 million copies, so it seems the series may be coming back.
According to Kotaku’s Jason Schreier, whose insider reports are usually right on the money, another BioShock is in the works at a new “top-secret” 2K studio located in the San Francisco Bay area. The revelation that a new BioShock is happening is buried within a larger story about the struggles of Mafia III developers Hangar 13.
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. Due to the uncertainty, many Hangar 13 employees have left, been laid off, or moved over to the new BioShock studio, which happens to be located right next door to Hangar 13.
I would say an E3 2018 reveal could be a long shot, but you never know what could happen
