Even though no new BioShock games have been announced, the franchise remains “really important” to publisher 2K Games, parent company Take-Two Interactive CEO Strauss Zelnick said today.
I'm a big Bioshock fan and while it won't be the same without Levine and Irrational, i'm looking forward to the next one (while being slightly cautiously optimistic ;P). I did really like 2, especially that DLC ending. Very good.
I have a feeling that 'advent' they're teasing is a new Bioshock
You...may be on to something there..
If there's one remaster I'd happily pay for, it would be Bioshock Infinite on PS4. The PS3 version felt really lacking having played the original Bioshock on a decent PC (for its time). For this very reason I couldn't bring myself to replay the campaign so another go in full HD and 60fps would be awesome!
Next time buy a PC, no need to support this remaster cancer.
I'll buy a good PC when my current one dies (gaming is expensive enough as it is, especially living in Western Europe). Bioshock Infinite and a few other gems like Star Citizen alone don't warrant the purchase of yet another way to play games, at least not in my household.. And if this 'cancer' you speak of keeps developers in a healthy financial state while we, the gamers, crave for ever more complicated and expansive gaming universes, I'm happy enough to hold out on any form of aggressive treatment.
It only came out a few yearsa go, get a grip.
Infinite selling 11 million, and still couldn't save Irrational Games? :o *shocked* EDIT: @Aloren "If I recall correctly, Levine just decided to "kill" Irrational cause he wanted to work on smaller projects." If that's true, then why didn't he simply go away and leave Irrational alone? Did he really have to disband Irrational games?
If I recall correctly, Levine just decided to "kill" Irrational cause he wanted to work on smaller projects.
@lelo2play Why indeed. My guess would be a mix between inflated ego (Levine is the "soul" of irrational after all...), being on the verge of a burnout, and 2k willing to do whatever he says to keep him. Also maybe calling the studio "irrational" was a bad omen :D
Um because ALL of Irrational went with him....Irrational was NOT closed down...Know your facts...Technically it didn't even close, THEY changed the name and detached from take two
"Closing of the studio On 18 February 2014 it was announced by Ken Levine via an open letter posted on the Irrational Games Website that Irrational Games would be closing. All but fifteen members of the Irrational Games staff would get laid off with the team helping them to find new jobs within and outside of 2K Games and that 2K was now in charge of the BioShock IP. A career day was hosted by Irrational Games for the remaining 75 employees to help seek employment at 57 other studios. Levine and the 15 remaining members of the team would be creating new, smaller games focusing on a replayable narrative for the core gamers. It was said that Levine's studio will continue to keep the Irrational name, although Take-Two later stated that it was not true. The studio's games will be released digitally with Take-Two/2K Games funding and publishing them. In January 2015, Levine and the remaining staff will form a new studio, the team is currently developing their first game which will be a "first-person sci-fi" game." http://en.wikipedia.org/wik... Well, according to this, the facts are that the studio closed down, about 80% of the employees were laid off, the Bioshock IP has nothing to do with them anymore, and the remaining 15 people formed a new studio with a new name ...It doesn't really leave much to interpretation imo.
go back to the water please!!!! and new main leads! you can do this
System Shock 3 would even MORE important:)
Aye, system shock isn't bound by the lighthouse mythos.
This shows you the running joke that vgchartz continues to be, can't another impartial and reputable site do what they do? Infinite apparently sold through the roof, i recall Levine and 2k claiming Infinite was not profitable. How could an 11m seller not turn a substantial profit? Btw here is vgchartz claiming Bioshock Infinite sold approximately 4 million units, never trust vgchartz i know it might not consider digital or online but to claim it sold 7m digital copies is ridiculous. http://www.vgchartz.com/gam...
According to steamspy, Infinite sold about 3.5 million copies on Steam. Then, knowing it was given for free with games with gold in march 2015, and on PS+ in february 2014, it really wouldn't be that surprising to see it reach 7m digital copies (even without PS+ which is technically just a rent).
Ps plus doesn't count like u said. So ur saying roughly 2 million digital sales on each console? Especially considering it was on plus i highly doubt it sold almost 2 million copies digitally psn for PS3. Idk of any games that sell 2 milion digitally on a single console, doubt minecraft did 2 million on PS3.
PS plus doesn't count but xbox live gold does count, since you keep the licence even if you're not gold anymore. So yeah, I wouldn't be surprised if 3+ million people added Infinite to their account using gold.
Ken Levine is what made Bioshock... bioshock. He's a true mastermind and while the bioshock games weren't perfect, they provided things you just don't see anywhere else. Without him behind future Bioshock games, I can't say as I'm too hopeful. To me, the ending of Infinite was closure for the series and the Ken Levine era of Bioshock.
How about you guys make that promised Vita bioshock instead of that mobile game porting crap?
the first bioshock was magical, never played anything like it everything was fresh and new, and very creepy. Would love to get my hands on a remastered part 1.
I liked the 1st one the most, but I did like the Big Daddy take on the story for the 2nd one better. Was just as creepy but in a different way. 3rd one wasn't really that creepy, but the atmosphere was really well defined, but it did lack some of those nuances that made the first two special.
If it was truly important you should have tried harder to keep the devs open. No BioShock now will ever be as good as what they did. Shame, shuch a good series
I can't wait to see the return of Bioshock
