A New BioShock Game Has Been Announced

A brand new Bioshock video game has officially been announced

Game publisher firm 2K Games has today announced the formation of new game development studio Cloud Chamber which, according to 2K, has begun work on “the next iteration of the globally acclaimed BioShock franchise”.

The new studio will reportedly have offices in Montreal and San Fransisco. Unfortunately, 2K’s announcement didn’t include any information on the upcoming BioShock game and since development just started, it’s safe to say we won’t hear anything about the video game for several years.

With the development time in mind, many fans have already theorised that the new game will be developed for next-generation consoles PS5 and Project Scarlett consoles.

2K President David Ismailer said in a statement: “As we continue growing our product portfolio, we remain inspired by opportunities to invest further in our valuable IP, great people and their collective, long-term potential.

“BioShock is one of the most beloved, critically praised and highest-rated franchises of the last console generation. We can’t wait to see where its powerful narrative and iconic, first-person shooter gameplay head in the future with our new studio team at Cloud Chamber leading the charge.”

As part of the formation of the new studio, Kelley Gilmore, who had worked on previous 2K games, has taken on the role of Studio Head, becoming the first female Studio Lead at 2K. Speaking about the announcement, she said:

“We founded Cloud Chamber to create yet-to-be-discovered worlds – and their stories within – that the push boundaries of what is possible in the video game medium. Our team believes in the beauty and strength of diversity, in both the makeup of the studio and the nature of its thinking.

“We are a deeply experienced group of game makers, including many responsible for BioShock’s principal creation, advancement and longstanding notoriety, and honoured to be part of the 2K family as stewards of this iconic franchise.”

Upcoming Game Leaks

The news comes just days before The Game Awards 2019 takes place on Thursday (December 12). The event, which celebrates recent achievements in the video games industry and acts as a place for announcements, will reportedly see the announcement of several new video games.

It’s rumoured that a remake of 1999 survival horror game Resident Evil 3 will be officially announced at the event after its cover art was leaked on the PlayStation Store last week. It’s speculated that the remake will be released sometime next year.

Other games rumoured to be announced at The Game Awards 2019 include Warner Bros. Montreal’s new Batman game, which is reportedly titled Batman: Arkham Legacy and will follow the Court Of Owls storyline from the Batman comics.

Leaks have suggested that FromSoftware’s Elden Ring will also be shown at the event after it was announced last summer at E3 2019. It’s possible that a release date may also be revealed for 2020.

It’s unknown whether or not these games will actually appear at the award show but with it and a new PlayStation State Of Play video for this week, we’re bound to see some game announcements this week.
