A tweet from
a couple of weeks ago
purports to offer details about the next BioShock
game, showing a logo for BioShock Isolation
(though there's a warning the
title may change). This comes from a relatively obscure account called
. The tweet says the new
BioShock is set in yet another isolated dystopian city, will use the Unreal
Engine 5, and is being developed by Irrational Games veterans and others. Word
is it will be officially announced in Q1 2022. A
takes a look at a presentation slide saying this "might" involve an
above-ground city sharing a border with a second, subterranean city. To be
clear, there are no particular bona fides to suggest this is accurate, but it
has belatedly gone viral, and is being widely reported. This interest has
with words of caution: "Since this has all gone viral, I want to
remind you that since all of these screenshots are from 2019, the information
there may be outdated. To avoid confusion, I will clarify some of the nuances."
Here's some of that clarification, which, to be clear, is all unconfirmed at
The game will not necessarily be called Isolation, take that
as a working title. The studio itself does not fully understand what to call the
game, but as far as I know, they will leave the numbered parts with Rapture,
assuming its return in the future.
Ken Levine is not involved in development, he is working on the project inside
his studio Ghost Story Games. The announcement of the game is scheduled for the
first quarter of 2022, but I also do not exclude its appearance on the TGA,
judging by the latest messages from Geoff.
Concept artists, environment artists, modelers, VFX specialists and level
designers who worked on Watch Dogs: Legion, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Mafia 3,
and so on are involved in the creation of the game. I didn't mean that the game
will be made by their teams completely.
I cannot know the relationship between Sony and 2K, but I know that the
development of the game is aimed to release on both PC and console, so I cannot
confirm the exclusivity of the new #Bioshock for PS5.
