Irrational Games may be gone, but that doesn't mean the esteemed Bioshock franchise has died with it.
Publisher 2K Games obviously has future plans for the award-winning series, and we may be hearing about those plans very soon…
2K's international Twitter account has offered the gaming public a couple of very intriguing teases; the picture you see here accompanies both Tweets: The first simply says "Discuss" while the second reads, "Oooo, what COULD this mean?!" The picture is an ad for Eve's Garden, a gentleman's club in Rapture.
So, what are we thinking? The unveiling of a next-gen Bioshock ? Cross your fingers!
I'm going to approach the new Bioshocks with great care and skepticism. I love Rapture to death but if they are bringing us back there it will have to be done in some incredibly imaginative way. You can only use one location so much sadly.
and some games probably can't be the same if the devs aren't the same. think of any great music band. Would they really be the same if they carried the name and had the back catalog of hits but all of the band members were new?
EDIT: and I pretty much feel that's whats missing from Halo 4 for me. It may look and act like a Halo but it was 99% bought and paid by talent that was never involved with the franchise to begin with.

like imagine the sequel to Journey not by ThatGameCompany. Imagine a TLoU sequel not by NaughtyDog.
sure maybe stand-in devs would work for a secondary handheld market but if Uncharted 4 was shown at E3 and if it wasn't by Naughty Dog, people would be very skeptical.

That's why I was mad that Levine just said "F it", shut everything down and took his dollies home.
He could have at least brought in a new visionary, acted as a kingmaker and groomed him for the franchise, gave him Irrational with their employees and then walked away.
Actually it was 2K United Kingdom who tweeted this?
Not the international account.
Just watch. It'll be the 1080p 60FPS remasters of the original trilogy 😉
lol, bc why not? everyones doing it
I'd actually buy that if it made changes to the games, cuz even now the textures and such in B1 are pretty bad and would look no better in 1080p.
I say you're definitely on to something here Temjin my friend. And you know what? I could see myself getting a remaster on the cheap eventually.
It'll be Infinite, at least, with a TLOU:R-styled package featuring the DLC packs bundled in.
cant wait to see more!
Temujin….just made a hell of a lot of sense. Great any and all hope I had just now for a new Bioshock is gone and I firmly believes it an HD collection. CRAP.
doubt it will be, but i so hope this is a true sequel to bioshock 2.
same deep dark creepy style playing as the big dady again.
i never was able to pick which was my favorite bioshock out of the two.
the original had the story and the hacking and traps were perfect, but the gameplay and creepy scary setting of 2 had its real charms too.
and recently playing through the DLC burial at sea really has made me want to play bioshock 2 again.
**SPOILER WARNING FOR BIOSHOCK INFINITE**
If they do make another Bioshock, it needs a new setting. Rapture is obviously a cornerstone of the series, but 2K can't just keep revisiting it now that we know that the universe is so, so much bigger than that thanks to Columbia and the hundreds of lighthouses at the end of Infinite.
well i could definatly look promising but we need something a little more definate i think
