There May Be Other Developers In BioShock's Future

Illustration for article titled There May Be Other Developers In BioShocks Future

The first BioShock game was developed by Irrational Games. The second? 2K Marin. Don't be surprised if the next game in the series goes somewhere else.

"We think BioShock is still one of the most important franchises in the industry," Take-Two Chairman Strauss Zelnick said in a conference call earlier today. "We do intend to support it; doesn't necessarily have to be at 2K Marin, but we do intend to support the franchise."

That's not outright confirmation that 2K Marin, who are helping 2K's Canberra studio on XCOM, are off the series. But it does raise the prospect of many more BioShock games to come.

Can't say I'm too happy with that. I didn't think the "universe" could really support a second game, let alone an ongoing series of titles, so hopefully 2K can find more creative ways of building on the BioShock world than just piling sequels on top of each other.

Seriously though, what else is there? Is it to much to ask that they just let a great franchise rest, and not drive it into the ground with sequel after sequel trying to fit in an already cramped world?

I'd be happy to be proven wrong and see them actually take the franchise to even greater places, but I'm not holding my breath.
