New secret BioShock title is now under development

Jason Schreier

Tucked away in a report by Kotaku's Jason Schreier detailing troubles at Mafia 3 developer Hangar 13, remnants of the broken-up team have apparently been funnelled into working on a BioShock title, while some have left the company entirely.

BioShock: Infinite was the latest title in the franchise, and the first person shooter was instantly hailed for its incredible journey into Rapture with stunningly detailed characters and immersive twists. All that changed this afternoon when Kotaku nonchalantly dropped a bombshell about a new BioShock game hidden in a postmortem piece on Mafia III.

"Next door, a small group of people were working on a project code-named Parkside, quietly recruiting from across the video game industry for a game so secret, they wouldn't even tell their colleagues at Hangar 13 about it", the report says. "It was all very tight-lipped".

However, it wasn't as easy as just bringing Hangar 13 employees over to work on BioShock. You can check out that tweet on the news for the new game below. There's a high probability this title is Borderlands 3, but BioShock also fits the bill.

Whether this studio is the same one working on the next BioShock at the moment is not known. The report doesn't indicate who's leading the game's development, but Ken Levine, the creative director on BioShock and BioShock Infinite, won't be involved: He pulled the plug on Irrational Games in 2014, and is now heading up a new, smaller studio called Ghost Story Games. Mafia III was published by 2K Games, owners of the BioShock franchise and publisher of all previous BioShock titles.
