A new BioShock game from 2K is reportedly in the works

The first-person shooter series, that's beloved for its style and story.is apparently getting an entirely new entry, according to a new report on Kotaku. 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. We have yet to see a new game in the franchise hit the newer PS4 and Xbox One consoles thus far. Some went to other game companies; others moved to the top-secret studio next door to work on an unannounced new BioShock game. All that changed this afternoon when Kotaku nonchalantly dropped a bombshell about a new BioShock game hidden in a postmortem piece on Mafia III. In the midst of the conversation, the report drops an exciting detail: an unannounced BioShock game is now underway.

The unnamed 2K studio now working on the game has reportedly assembled a small team to do so, pulling developers from both outside 2K and from sister studios like Hangar 13 to work on the project. "It was all very tight-lipped". It's only been mentioned that some developers from Hanger 13 have joined a new studio and they are working in a new project code-named "Parkside".

"If anyone from Hangar 13 tried to strike up a conversation with them, they'd say, 'Oh, we can't really talk about it, '" a source close to the studio told Kotaku.

The original run of BioShock saw the release of three games, BioShock, BioShock 2, and BioShock Infinite, and the series has been sitting quietly since Infinite's release 2013. 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. "They're trying to be really smart about figuring out what the core thing is", one person involved with the project 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".
