BioShock: The new game would be titled Isolation, and we would play in two cities

BioShock is one of the most loved and valued sagas in the video game industry, thanks to its fun gameplay and a story that leaves us speechless with its script twists. A proposal that was born from the mind of Ken Levine, and that now the Cloud Chamber development studio has taken the reins. The rumored fourth installment aims to debut on PS5 and Xbox Series X / S, taking users to a new city with which it was said that we will have “memorable experiences.” This week alleged project information has been leaked that has left us very, very interesting data. We tell you everything that has been said about it under these lines.

BioShock Isolation: There is always a lighthouse, there is always a city

The information comes from the Twitter account Oops Leaks, and from the forum ResetEra have echoed the supposed news that surround this new installment of the saga BioShock. First of all, the title: it seems that this game will be baptized as BioShock Isolation, name that makes direct allusion to the plot. The plot leads us to a new “isolated” dystopian city. In fact, to be fair, there will not be a single city but two.

Oops Leaks has shared on his account what appears to be an excerpt from the presentation of BioShock Isolation. In this slide we can read the approach of the game: there will be two cities with a radically opposite ideology. One of these cities will be located underground, just below the other. Both share a strip baptized like “Flipside zone”, reserved to fight the wars between both cities.

Two cities clashed by a successful businessman and a dictator

In this way, the first city is characterized by being “a rich and free society led by a successful businessman”. We don’t know if he will have the same charisma as Andrew Ryan in the first BioShock, but we are crossing our fingers to make it so. The second city, meanwhile, be led by a dictator which advocates conducting a “vertical war” with the surface city. In my head I am already imagining two figures similar to Ryan and Zachary Hale Comstock, from BioShock Infinite, faced in this war.

More details: Unreal Engine 5, developers, announcement …

Putting the magnifying glass on the most technical aspect, from Oops Leaks they indicate that the game will be developed in Unreal Engine 5 (an engine with which the fans have already recreated the first game with spectacular results), and come from the hand of veterans of Irrational Games (the original developers of the saga). We also find workers who have collaborated on titles such as Watch Dogs: Legion, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Mafia 3 O Deus Ex: Mankind Divided.

And when will all this be announced? Since the leak it points to the announcement will be made in the first quarter of 2022. From Take-Two they already pointed out in their day that this fourth installment of BioShock “take many years” to arrive. At the time it was said that BioShock 4 It may be set within the calendar of fiscal year 2023/2024 (April 1, 2022 – March 31, 2024).

However, Oops Leaks has hinted that during The Game Awards on December 9 we could know some detail. If that’s true, we’ll just have to wait a couple more weeks to find out. At the moment, it should be noted that all this information needs to be officially confirmed.
