Ken Levine, well known for his work on Thief: The Deadly Shadows, System Shock 2, and the BioShock games, and being one of the figureheads in popularizing the immersive sim genre, is currently acting as the president and creative director of Ghost Story Games. Levine, however, has been the subject of talks as of late in regards to the unannounced game he and his team is making.

Well, it seems we have more news in regards to that yet unannounced game, this time from Ken Levine himself. Speaking with the Arcade Attack in an interview (via WCCFTech), Levine talks about various topics, mostly in regards to his career and previous games. One thing he did confirm is that the game he is working on right now will be revealed only when it is nearing completion and is closer to launch, as he did not want to show it too early.

Levine says: “We didn’t want to go down the path of showing [the game] too early, because we thought it was going to be out sooner, and I don’t want to have a long period of having a build-up, interest, and hype because it just doesn’t, it would end up feeling fairly inauthentic and I think that gamers want to be… they want to know what they’re getting, and the only way to do that really is to announce closer to launch.”

Levine also says that the announcement of the game will make people “surprised but unsurprised by what they see”, and that he is not involved in the next BioShock game, wishing well to the developers of that title.

This comes days after a report published by Bloomberg, in which several current and former Ghost Story Games employees – speaking under anonymity – talked about how the studio’s debut game is going through developmental troubles because of Levine’s management and auteurism. For now, it seems like we have to wait quite a while to get any sort of info into Ghost Story Games’ upcoming title.
