BioShock is an incredible first-person shooter franchise that deals with the collapse of various isolated communities. Many years ago, the previous developer was shut down by parent company 2K Games, but now, another team has emerged to take its place. Today, we received a press release that recognized the establishment of Cloud Chamber.
According to 2K, Cloud Chamber is "a collective of storytellers eager to push the frontlines of interactive entertainment by making unique, entertaining, and thoughtful experiences." Cloud Chamber will build its team in San Francisco and Montréal. The bigger news is that Cloud Chamber is working on the next iteration of the BioShock franchise. Unfortunately, it's going to be in development for several years because the team wants to get it right. It's unclear where the story will unfold this time around.
President of 2K, David Ismailer, said the following.
Kelley Gilmore has been in the gaming industry for almost two decades and will be Cloud Chamber's Global Studio Head.
Gilmore said the following about Cloud Chamber.
It's great to see that 2K has officially acknowledged that it's working on another BioShock game. However, I'm pretty sure that this news leaked roughly two years ago. We'll keep you posted as soon as new details emerge about the project. We do know that it takes place in a new setting, that's not Rapture or Columbia. What do you want to see from the next installment? Do you want a remake of the original? Let us know.

YASSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Bioshock is by far my favorite world to play in. I'm so glad they're bringing it back!
Sweet! Would love to see a new one in SPAAAAACE!!!!!
I just hope they don't screw it by turning it into a service.
Why do a remake of the original? It's a gorgeous, fun classic just the way it is. They did remaster the first two for improved graphics. I actually just purchased the remastered ones on gog.com and installed the first one last night. I played for about an hour and it is still SO gorgeous and fun!
