Won't be out for a long while
BioShock is coming back. Publisher 2K Games has announced the return of Ken Levine's dystopian FPS franchise, but the creator won't be at the helm this time. Alongside the reveal of the next BioShock title, 2K has officially announced a new internal studio named Cloud Chamber. It's this team which will head up...
Would you kindly be excited?
Uncovered as part of an excellent Kotaku report on Mafia III’s missteps, a new BioShock game is in development at a top-secret 2K Games studio next door to Hangar 13. According to the article – penned by the ever-reliable Jason Schreier – the Mafia maker was working on an espionage adventure, before it slipped into...
All spliced up
Phwoar! These look good, don't they? 2K Games has released around ten minutes of footage from each game included in BioShock: The Collection, which is set to launch on the PlayStation 4 next month. And it's a reminder of just how unique these games were on the PlayStation 3. All three titles look amazing, but BioShock: Infinite's...
BioShock has, arguably, one of the greatest intros to a game ever. But it's about to get even better as part of BioShock: The Collection, the PlayStation 4 remaster of the PlayStation 3 classic. 2K Games has truncated the amazing opening, and uploaded a comparison with its new-gen version. The differences, as you may imagine, are...
All three games, all DLC in one package
It's about bloody time, eh? After months upon months of knowing fine well that it was coming, 2K Games has finally confirmed that BioShock: The Collection is bubbling up onto PlayStation 4. As expected, it'll include all three last-gen BioShock titles - BioShock, BioShock 2, and BioShock Infinite - along...
BioShock: The Collection is happening - we've known that it's going to happen for months and months and months, yet 2K refuses to kick an official announcement out of the door and let us get on with dreary lives. This time, we go one step further into what is currently the worst kept secret in gaming, as thanks to Twitter user @lifelower's...
American ratings reveal rapturous return
The bathysphere including official information on BioShock: The Collection has yet to surface, but that's not stopped the North American ratings board ESRB from temporarily classifying the forthcoming PlayStation 4 compilation. While the info's since been pulled, this is the third time that the t
Back in the bathysphere
This is now the worst kept secret in games: BioShock: The Collection is coming to the PlayStation 4. After leaking on approximately eight ratings boards, a Taiwanese classification site has now decided to upl
BioShock? Borderlands? Take Two's going big
Take Two, the company in charge of 2K Games and Rockstar, has hinted that it will appear at E3 2016 in a "big way". Strauss Zelnick, the organisation's head honcho, teased the tidbit in the latest issue of MCV, stopping short of revealing which titles it will have on display. It currently has three games...
Under the sea
We asked 2K Games if it would kindly make a BioShock remaster for the PlayStation 4, and it looks like it's responded. As if it ever had a choice, eh? There were rumours eons ago that BioShock: The Collection would wrench its way to Sony's new-gen system, but they never materialised. Now, though, the Brazilian rati
Would you kindly
We've chalked this up as a rumour for now, but you can send us to Rapture if it doesn't eventually happen. South African retailer Raru – we know, we know – has listed The BioShock Collection for release on the PlayStation 4. There's no original artwork so the retailer could just be acting presumptuously, but this series is...
The Rapture awaits
Assuming that series creator Ken Levine’s cancelled Final Fantasy Tactics-esque vision for BioShock Vita wasn’t a big enough kick in the teeth, 2K Games has now announced that the series’ original entry will be riding Rapture’s bathysphere to the iPhone and iPad at some point in the near future. That sinking sensation that...
Give us the game, and wipe away the debt
Remember when Ken Levine inadvertently popped up at the PS Vita's official reveal event? A now famous moment, the luminary sidled onstage and suggested a game in the BioShock universe was in development for the hot new handheld. Unfortunately, a recent statement on Twitter from the auteur has revealed that,...
Fox News appears to be a big fan of Irrational Games’ politically charged first-person shooter BioShock Infinite, as the United States station adapted the PlayStation 3 adventure’s logo for a recent segment on immigration, dubbed ‘Defending the Homeland’. Seeing as the game itself deals with the very idea of xenophobia,...
Despite the disbandment of Irrational Games, the BioShock brand will go on bamboozling fans – this time under the watchful eye of 2K Marin. Those of you with strong memories may recall that the Californian studio was partly responsible for the divisive sequel BioShock 2, which this author actually preferred to the original. Not
Would you kindly port this?
The original BioShock was released seven years ago. That's an astonishing statistic that makes us feel old, but Rapture still holds up well regardless. However, what if the game was re-mastered using the additional grunt of the PlayStation 4? We certainly wouldn't mind re-visiting its underwater, dystopian society, and...
Videogame fans cried out in unison as industry legend Ken Levine announced that he’d be closing down beloved BioShock developer Irrational Games a few weeks ago. However, the office was not to be boarded up until he’d seen the third and final instalment of BioShock Infinite’s DLC out of the door. Now that the dust’s settled,...
Sneaky undersea shenanigans
Irrational Games may be shutting its doors, but head honcho Ken Levine is still on the campaign trail for BioShock: Infinite's final piece of downloadable content, Burial At Sea: Episode 2. Most recently, he revealed that the studio's second return to
Not a big shock
With the great rapture at BioShock Infinite developer Irrational Games now underway, you may be wondering what the future holds for the franchise’s infamous PlayStation Vita release. CVG had the gumption to ask 2K Games about the previously announced BioShock Vita, to which it was t
The Big Daddy
There’s a familiar face making a return as part of the second episode of BioShock Infinite’s big-budget ‘Burial at Sea’ expansion pack. Irrational Games has plunged to the depths of the ocean, and surfaced with a brand new three minute trailer showing an early cut-scene from the add-on. You may want to dip your head beneath a...
God only knows
Bold, brash, and brimming with more out-of-place Beach Boys records than a music store aimed at industrial rock fans , it’s hardly surprising that BioShock Infinite soared to the summit of our Game of the Year poll speedier than protagonist Booker DeWitt when strapped into a bizarre lighthouse contraption. Irrational Games’...
Irrational Games gaffer Ken Levine has said that he is in no rush to get a BioShock movie made
A cinematic adaptation of the first-person adventure game has been on the cards for a while, but like so many other video game movies has struggled to get off the ground. We got very close to having it get made we had a deal in place and a director. But for us theres no burning to have a movie..
Ken Levine promises Vita's BioShock is not a port
Ken Levine let us know about BioShock on PS Vita during a brief appearance during Sony's E3 Press Conference, simply revealing that his studio is bringing the franchise to the system in one way or another. But we were still in the dark as to how exactly Irrational Games was going to be doing this...
Ken Levine created Bioshock
But over the last few years he's been working on a new project we still don't know about. A business piece in the LA Times today fails to uncover any new details about Levine's next project, but does offer some interesting soundbytes. The interview with Take-Two man Strauss Zelnick reveals that Levine was "freed" from working on a Bioshock sequel in order to..
Variety are reporting that Universal Pictures are in contact with director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo over a Bioshock movie adaptation
Gore Verbinski was originally pencilled in to direct the movie, but he's now moved into a producer role, preferring to direct a new Pirates Of The Caribbean movie. We actually think Bioshock would make an amazing movie. No snarky comments from us.
