Although the saddening discovery of developer Irrational Games closing still burdens fans anticipating a new game from the development team, that does not discount a new Bioshock title from arriving. Previously, publisher 2K announced to be forming a dedicated game studio for the project, Cloud Chamber. However, anticipating when the game will arrive is another story.

In a earnings call from 2K parent company Take-Two Interactive, the conglomerate discloses that the Bioshock project is still “several years” away from its release. But, details on the project appears to still leak through the confidential cracks. In that, one job listing for the game asking for a Lead Environment Modeler implicates the game may not be set in either Rapture or Columbia.

“We want you to set the example, leading effort to help us breathe life into a new and fantastical world,” the posting asks. But in a new job listing in search for a Senior Writer, Cloud Chamber phrases to be hiring a possible candidate to write in anticipation for an “open-world setting.”

Experience in writing for games, with a particular aptitude  for managing the nuances of interactive storytelling, would be ideal for this role. We’re hoping to find someone who can weave impactful, character-driven stories in an open world setting.

Upon reading more into the job listing, Cloud Chamber also asks for other qualifications and skills that might benefit the possible hiree’s chances in the position. One asks that the candidate has a “deep understanding and knowledge of story logic, plotting, and the intersection of game and narrative design.” So perhaps more mind-bending storytelling is anticipated as runoff from Bioshock: Infinite.

While discussion of the next game is a prominent bullet point currently, there is also discussion for a television show in the works. Giant Freaking Robot reports that there is a episodic series that is currently underway in collaboration with Netflix. You can read the full report by heading here.
