BioShock has so far been set deep underwater and high above the clouds, so where would be the next logical step? Following the recent report that a new BioShock is indeed being developed, I threw out that very same question to the staff here at PS LifeStyle. There are so many great ways that the team could go with this latest BioShock, it’s really fun to speculate just on what we think the best setting could be.
Check out what our writers think below.
New BioShock, What Sort of Setting Should it Have?
The game is apparently being handled by a group of Hangar 13 employees under the code-name Parkside.
A year and a half later, however, Hangar 13 is a far different place. This past year was a turbulent time for the studio, as it floundered while trying to figure out what its next game would be. Many of the people who helped make Mafia III are now gone, including the game’s art director, technical art director, senior producers, design director, many design leads, and a number of other key staff. Some left voluntarily; others were let go or asked to move. Some went to other game companies; others moved to the top-secret studio next door to work on an unannounced new BioShock game…
…employees of Hangar 13 couldn’t help but look with envy at their neighbors. 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. Word got out, though, that it was in fact a new game in one of the most interesting shooter franchises of the past decade: BioShock.
