A new Bioshock is reportedly in development at 2K games, but the franchise needs to have a pretty drastic change in order to remain relevant.
I would like to see a return to the old, creepy factor that the first game had.
MetroidVania and Story driven
completely agree, the last one lost the scare/creepy factor.
that would be very nice. i´m a big fan of the creepy atmosphere from the first game.
Yep. I want Alsace anywhere back for strategic purposes. And loved the camera. But we will need an epic story, amazing enemies and an atmospheric setting.
Yeah, that and a more free-form structure. I think Dishonored 1 and 2 blew Bioshock out of the water (although each game has strengths and weaknesses). Since Infinte we've also had Prey and Deus Ex, so I think a new Bioshock has to step it up. Infinite was okay within the context of the BIoshock series, but as a game within that particular subgenre it was mediocre.
the more sequels you make of the same formula the more difficult it is to top the original classic From a fan's perspective they might have to turn the latest entry upside down. A new director who isn't afraid to implement their own ideas. satisfying gameplay great characters and storytelling. just my 2 cents.
This is more or less what I said in the piece, take some risks, do something dramatically different, etc
I really want micro-transaction, pay to win, loot boxes, open world, and multiplayer only. I really want to pay 15 times over just to get a semi-usable game. #moderndaygaming
I want a VR version of the first game.
It has to have soul--not in a convoluted story kind of way, but in a simple yet captivating overall experience. The original Bioshock had that and more. And I hope we get the weapon wheel back. It seems that when devs drop this feature for a more CoD-like approach, their games start to lose their luster. Resistance 2 was also a victim to this unnecessary change if you ask me. We want to be able to experiment with our weapons, you know.
They went underwater. They went to the sky. What's left? Outer space! In this alternate time line America went to space in the late 19th century. The game could have a steampunk vibe to it but in space. What do you guys think? Do you think they would do something like this?
Or Cyberpunk with a big twist at the end.
We need a new studio for BioShock
more like 1 & 2 less like 3 please, is all i ask
Nothing, Bioshock 1 was amazing, leave it at that. Why does everything need to be Call of Duty milked until it's worthless these days??????
That’s a really good question. I like the political nature but they have already covered so much ground in the series I don’t know what they could do. Bioshock tackled objectivism, Bioshock 2 tackled collectivism, infinite tackles white nationalism and intersectionality. I would like something like that but what is left? Lol
Just make a good game. I'd love for it to capture what made the first (and whole series imo) so special but it may not be possible to top or even match the original. Have a firm understanding of the ideas and systems that made the series so special but also don't be afraid to take risks as the original did so boldly. Just don't be so focused on making it "feel like Bioshock" that making a good game is the secondary focus. Make a good game then make it feel like "Bioshock". The series has had a long enough break cant wait to see the next entry.
Ken Levine. In short? What a new BioShock won't have.
I think a new BioShock could work with the right team and budget allowed. Bioshock 2 was actually pretty great and he wasn't involved in it, sorta like how the new God of War is a new great direction for the series even though the original creator wasn't working on it.
