2k Games announced that under the supervision of the newly formed studio Cloud Chamber, a new BioShock game is in development. Cloud Chamber has offices in California and Montreal and will be headed up by 2K veteran Kelley Gilmore who has worked on XCOM and Civilization.
One name noticeably absent from the development cast and crew is original creator Ken Levine who is working on a new story at Ghost Story Games and likely won’t have any influence going forward.
In an interview with GamesRadar, Gilmore says that Bioshock’s unique environments — from the underwater city of Rapture to the floating city of Columbia and, uh, back to Rapture — are “incredibly important to the gameplay experience.” She added that there are plenty of “creative directions to explore,” which might hint that the team will find a new setting for this fourth title in the saga.Via Engadget.com
2K says the game will take several years to develop and fans of the series should expect to see it launch after the next generation of consoles has arrived.
