Is anyone else a Bioshock fan? I’ve never been much for horror games and while Bioshock doesn’t fit the bill of one, it’s as close I like to get. The series is one of my favorites, and it’s been way too long since the last one. Bioshock Infinite released over six years ago, so it’s encouraging to see a new development.
2K Games officially announced the formation of Cloud Chamber this morning and with it exciting news. A new Bioshock game is officially being worked on. While we don’t have any more details than “we’re doing a thing”, it’s way more than we have had previously. There’s not even an official name, but this isn’t lessening the excitement fans have right now.
According to Jason Schreier of Kotaku this isn’t an extremely new studio. Read this tweet-
It’s so funny when a company announces a new studio as if it hasn’t been operating for the past two years https://t.co/etRpNynI6R

The main thing I gather from this is that we might have a game sooner than we think. If they’ve been working on something for two years, we may even see a trailer by E3 of 2021. I can almost guarantee that whatever the game may be, it will release too late to make it to PlayStation 4 or Xbox One. We already know PlayStation 5 and Project Scarlett will release by the end of 2020, and I don’t see a way the next Bioshock is out before 2022.
Do you have any ideas of where the franchise may go from here? Do you think we will return to Rapture or Columbia? Or will it be something completely new? I only know one thing for certain, there will always be a man and a lighthouse. You can currently buy Bioshock: The Collection for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
