On 2K Boston's Next Project

2K Boston's Job Listings on Gamasutra offer some hints as to what's going on at the BioShock developer, where it sounds like they are working on an Unreal Engine 3 game that will include multiplayer support. The listing for a Lead Multiplayer Engineer, for instance, mentions, "backend support for an action-packed AAA multiplayer title," and: "Responsible for delivering a robust, scalable, and responsive multiplayer gameplay code and backend services for the PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 platforms." Thanks Mike Martinez and 1Up.

Multiplatform =/= console port. L4D, TF2, and CoD4 are available across multiple systems, yet I enjoy the hell out of the respective PC versions.

In 99% of cases, multiplatform = console is lead SKU and PC version is a port. In the case of L4D and TF2, PC was the lead SKU. 360 was the lead SKU for CoD4, but IW went above and beyond with the PC port and actually added functionality, like leaning. Unfortunately, this is the exception to the rule as most PC ports don't add anything.
