Bioshock 2 will be a prequel?

Czech gaming site posted new information about Bioshock 2 which cames from some unnamed source within 2k Games. According to the source Bioshock 2 is now in pre-preproduction phase and 2k plans to release it in summer 2009. According to Hrej at this stage of development they are trying to focus on storyline and graphic design. Plot will be set BEFORE events from original game. So it looks like Bioshock 2 will be a prequel and we will wittness more about the fall of underwater utopia...

The story is too old to be commented.

not really a fan of prequels, hopefully this oone can change my mind

if you have played the game you will realize that the only way to go forward is to go back into the past.Rapture was such a deep compelling underwater world that it really makes sense to explain and show how it was a thriving city and how it all went bust.

I am sure it will still be a great game

Exactly, since nothing happens after(as seen in the ending) the only thing to do is go back.

I'd really like to see when splicing gets out of control and it goes downhill.

Bioshock 2: The Rupture of Rapture.

Even *better* than the first, while playing Bioshock, I thought the prequel story would be better.. too much unexplored opportunity.

I can't wait.

I just honestly hope they don't mess up that franchise by making a BioShock 3. A prequel will be great to show Rapture going to hell in a hand basket in the making. But, I just hate it when a good franchise goes bad when a completely unnecessary sequel is made, IMHO.

Go ahead and make BioShock 2, I loved the first. :)

So they are remaking the first System Shock now?

Oh your so clever. Do you think all creation happens in a vacuum? *OR* do you think all PS3 games are of virgin creative birth, while the vile, evil MS simply steals (*gasp*) all their software.

Get realistic son.

I'd be delighted if they remade both System Shock 1 and 2, number 2 in particular is one of the creepiest games I've ever played and they could do some class things with a decent engine and maybe some co-op play creeping around the Von Braun.

Sign me up :)
