Secret BioShock Game Reportedly in Development

Next BioShock game currently in development at “top-secret” 2K Games studio

Of note, Take-Two's November 2017 fiscal report teased that a "highly anticipated new title" in "one of 2K's biggest franchises" will be released on March 31, 2019. Since then, there have been some re-releases and remasters for current-generation consoles, but nothing substantial in the way of a new game. In a lengthy report on the state of Mafia III developer Hangar 13, Kotaku has uncovered the existence of a "top secret" BioShock project - and it's happening in Novata, California in the building next to Hangar 13.

This new BioShock game will not be created by Ken Levine, the man behind the franchise who has founded Ghost Story Games and is working on a new first-person sci-fi game.

This all has been going on while Hangar 13 endured its own share of difficulties. This past year was a turbulent time for the studio, as it floundered while trying to figure out what its next game would be. The original article is a research piece exploring how Mafia III developer Hangar 13 has been evolving for the past 18 months, with many major people in the company, including the art director and major game designers, being laid-off in February. Some left voluntarily; others were let go or asked to move. The game is being worked on by an unnamed top-secret studio, the report claims, with the team being located next door to Hangar 13.

Kotaku has revealed that a new BioShock game is under development. Some, it seems, have moved over to another top-secret 2K studio to work on the next Bioshock game. Following the lukewarm response that Mafia 3 received and the uncertainty of where to go next, the studio remains at a crossroads that has resulted in layoffs. In the midst of the conversation, the report drops an exciting detail: an unannounced BioShock game is now underway.

"The issue is that Parkside's not ready for lots of people", said another person involved with goings-on at the company.
