The next title in the franchise could go open world.
The BioShock franchise has always been an interesting one to look back on. It had three very successful and acclaimed titles and then just…kind of stopped. There’s a few reasons for that, but they aren’t largely relevant since we know a new game has been in development since 2017. We know little about it, however, and only bits and pieces that comes from areas like job listings. Now, we have a tidbit that could point to what direction 2K is keen to take the sci-fi series.
A job listing for Senior Writer is live now at Cloud Chamber, who is developing this new title. As spotted by PCGamesN, tucked away subtly is they are looking to “find someone who can weave impactful, character-driven stories in an open world setting.” This would indicate that the current direction of the game is an open world title of some kind. That also jives with other information we’ve gleamed of the game from other listings, such as the mention of a sandbox world of some kind, which you can read more about through here.
BioShock 4, or whatever it will be called, has not been officially announced. As it stands now, it seems as if the game, in whatever form it’ll take, is still a good ways off.
