We had a few reports earlier that hinted at a potential BioShock sequel. However, there was nothing concrete at that time.
But, now, 2K officially launched a new studio – “Cloud Chamber” that is actively working on a new BioShock game.
It looks like the newest development studio was launched to focus primarily on the new iteration of the BioShock game.
In a tweet, they did officially confirm the same:
Today, 2K announced the founding of Cloud Chamber, its newest development studio. This team of storytellers has begun work on the next iteration of the acclaimed @BioShock franchise, which will be in development for the next several years.

The development studio will have its team at 2K’s San Francisco Bay Area headquarters in Novato, Calif. and in Montréal, Québec as well – which marks the first-ever Canadian office for a 2K studio.
In their official press release, they have mentioned that even though the development studio focuses on a new BioShock game, it will be in development for the next several years. So, it is safe to assume that you should not expect it anytime soon.
Maybe we would have some more information about it with the new PlayStation 5 or Project Scarlett. If it is being targeted for the next-gen consoles along with the PC platform – we might see more details surface soon enough.
BioShock is an incredibly popular franchise, you can try it out if you did not know about it by any chance. So, for now, the news for the new development studio is exciting enough. What do you think?
