The fourth part of the action RPG Bioshock is said to be in trouble. This is according to the prominent insider channel Oops Leaks. According to him, even a year after the fourth reboot of the project, it is not possible to write a high-quality script that would be worthy of the iconic series, and the development is not helped by the departure of the developers from the Cloud Chamber studio, which is working on the novel.
The new Bioshock is in development hell.
Despite a complete change in development leadership, the Bioshock series is still haunted by the curse of problematic development. No game details will be described here, and this is likely to be my final report on the next Bioshock. pic.twitter.com/5oppXBsbns— Oops Leaks (@oopsleaks) May 18, 2023
As with all unofficial and unconfirmed reports, these statements must be taken with a grain of salt. But we have known about the continuation of the dystopian series since at least 2019, and we still only have fragments and information from the development from leaks. The publisher Take-Two and the studio Cloud Chamber have been suspiciously silent about the project, which could indicate that things are not going exactly according to plan.
The sequel is still being referred to as Bioshock: Isolation. The concept of two diametrically opposed mirror cities set in isolated Antarctica is said to remain, but due to constant changes in the development of the project, Cloud Chamber is having difficulty retaining employees.
“The work structure is unorganized. The studio has a large majority of employees without experience in positions where the requirement is at least 3 to 7 years in the field. A huge challenge is faced by the narrative team, which is unable to write a script worthy of the brand’s reputation,” the leaker profile states.
Take-Two is said to be aiming to release a Bioshock sequel in fiscal year 2025. But if the game isn’t announced this year, it’s highly unlikely that it will make it.
In the meantime, you will have a number of opportunities to pass the time waiting for Bioshock 4 or the spiritual sequel to Judas. At the end of May, a remake of the first System Shock, which started the entire “shock” series, is released. Later this year, Nightdive Studios still plans to release an enhanced edition of System Shock 2, which will offer new more modern models and textures.
