BioShock Revival Reportedly In the Works at a New "Top-Secret" 2K Studio

But, back to BioShock - what would you like out of a potential new entry?

The fact a new BioShock game is now in development should come as a shock to absolutely no one.

Tucked away in a report by Kotaku's Jason Schreier detailing troubles at Mafia 3 developer Hangar 13, remnants of the broken-up team have apparently been funnelled into working on a BioShock title, while some have left the company entirely. All that changed this afternoon when Kotaku nonchalantly dropped a bombshell about a new BioShock game hidden in a postmortem piece on Mafia III.

BioShock is one of 2K Games' most important properties, but there hasn't been much rumbling about where the series will go next.

"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 a source familiar with the studio in the report. 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 was all very tight-lipped". Not that it's surprising that 2K would return to one of its most visible and valuable series, of course, and it has been five years since BioShock Infinite came out.

Unfortunately for fans of the series, it still sounds like the game may be a ways away from launch. It stands to reason that Ken Levine won't be involved with the project, as he's working on a new game with his new studio called Ghost Story Games. "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". Mafia III was published by 2K Games, owners of the BioShock franchise and publisher of all previous BioShock titles. While many are leaning towards it being Borderlands 3, it could be the new BioShock, because the franchise is really important to the company.
