2K Games has a new BioShock game in the works

The mention of the new game's development came up in the part of Kotaku's article that covered where certain Hangar 13 developers had been assigned following the work done with Mafia III: "Many of the people who helped make Mafia III are now gone, including the game's art director, technical art director, senior producers, design director, many design leads, and a number of other key staff. 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." explains one person now working on the new BioShock - at once revealing that they're still early in development, but that there's a clear plan in place for a core construct to build the title around.

This new BioShock is allegedly being developed right next door to Hangar 13. The report says that a top-secret studio located "next door" to Hangar 13 is now in the early stages of work on a brand-new BioShock game.

2K Games confirmed Fergusson's announcement, but wouldn't comment on the studio nor what it would be working on.

The new rumblings on the franchise stem from a a Kotaku report on Mafia III, entitled "How The Makers Of Mafia III Lost Their Way".

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. During a feature concerning Mafia III studio Hangar 13, it was revealed there was a small group of developers working on a project codenamed Parkside. If anything, it seems like they are a lot more keen to keep this one close to the vest until they are fully ready to release the details to the world.

Until E3, we'll just have to stick with our imaginations about what comes next. "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".

Are you excited for the possibility of a new BioShock game? While many are leaning towards it being Borderlands 3, it could be the new BioShock, because the franchise is really important to the company.
