I’ve wanted a bioshock sequel for awhile. Im totally cool with how this game is coming along. They were having development issues, perhaps they rebuilt it to be bioshocky

Nacho_Z131d ago

It's a fair point, why make a big deal out of shutting down a studio to step away from AAA and Bioshock and concentrate on fresh ideas, only to make what looks like a AAA Bioshock with a slightly different aesthetic ten years later.

Ultimately though it doesn't matter, all that does is whether it's good or not and while I'm not totally sold it does look like a quality product.

I'm extremely excited about this. Been waiting a decade for this to finally come to fruition.

This game makes me wonder what Bioshock Infinite would have been like if it released today. There was clearly so much unrealised ambition in that game, and it would be fascinating to see what Ken Levine would do with it these days.

Still, very excited for Judas.

Judas: Gameplay Overview of BioShock Creator's Next Game

IGN : If you haven't already watched our 75-minute, in-depth interview with Judas director Ken Levine about Judas and how its "narrative LEGO" idea builds off of what he did with BioShock and BioShock Infinite, be sure to check that out for additional context. But here you can get a look at all of the new gameplay that developer Ghost Story Games sent us to accompany the interview. Enjoy!

Hyped for this! Really hope it lives up to the Bioshock games.

Judas First Details: How Ken Levine Is Building on BioShock With 'Narrative LEGOs'

IGN: "We spent six hours playing a recent build of Judas, the next game from BioShock creator Ken Levine, followed by a lengthy conversation with the renowned game designer to discuss the long wait since BioShock Infinite, bringing the "narrative LEGOs" concept to life in Judas, what the game is all about, and much more."

I’m tentatively hopeful for this. Love Bioshock. As far as the narrative Legos we shall have to wait and see. The early trailer for Infinite showed off a lot of stuff that didn’t make it into the finished product, and Levine is notoriously difficult to work for, so if this narrative stuff makes it into the came will be curious to see how impactful it is. I’d be fine with something more in the vein of the first Bioshock. Not much like that now, especially since Arkane’s fall from grace.

I didn’t realize Levine’s new studio was under 2K Games just like Irrational was. What was the point quitting Irrational and then 2K dissolving the studio only for him to open up a smaller studio still under 2K? Why not just downsize Irrational, keep operations going and have the brand recognition. Cuz it’s not like Judas is a departure from his normal style. Must be a story there

Cloud Chamber, under 2K, is the new studio developing the next Bioshock (4?) game.

I imagine he had a negative experience building Bioshock Infinite, due to the pressure on the team. As you pointed out in your other comment, lots from that game was cut out or changed before release. I suspect he wanted the opportunity to step back and create a game in a timescale that allowed him to deliver the product he wanted.

Irrational may have also been locked into certain contracts under 2K, and opening a new studio may have allowed him to negotiate new terms.
