Top-Secret 2K Studio Working on Next Bioshock

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

Publisher 2K Games is rumoured to be working on a new entry for the critically-acclaimed BioShock series. Codenamed Parkside, this project is said to be the next BioShock, according to the report, and it sounds like it's not only top-secret but also quite early in development.

Interestingly enough, some of the developers from Hangar 13 (who worked on Mafia 3) have joined this new 2K studio.


Whilst the following is a stretch, signs are pointing at the secret studio being made up of Hanger 13 and BioShock-affiliated 2K Marin members. The original trilogy of games were all well-received, with the first and third installments in particular garnering critical acclaim.

It's not a surprise that a new BioShock game is in development considering the popularity of the series. Kotaku news editor Jason Schreier revealed on his Twitter account this week that a "top-secret" studio is working on a new BioShock Video game. It's certainly possible that he was talking about BioShock 4, but we won't know for sure until the notoriously tight-lipped publisher makes it official.


During this time, the studio was going through some major hardships both with sales and massive layoffs. I guess I just expected a little more fanfare.

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


Since then, the studio has "floundered" as it tries to figure out what its next project should be, with ideas like a fourth Mafia set in Las Vegas during the 70s, a spy game set in Berlin in the 80s, and a music-fueled action game ultimately being abandoned.
