2K Games, the editor of Bioshock 4 (unofficial name) has not given details of the new installment of the saga created by Irrational Games since December 2019, when they announced that the title was in development by a newly founded studio: Cloud Chamber. The lack of official information, together with the expectations surrounding the work, has led to the extraction of even the smallest data of the title through LinkedIn and other sources. One of those leaks, the supposed exclusivity for PlayStation 5, is false, according to a profile of said social network rescued by the insider Faizan Shaikh (va Eurogamer.it).
One lead systems engineer of the Californian offices of Cloud Chamber (the study has another headquarters in Montreal) who worked in the company between August 2019 and October 2021 indicates in their profile of LinkedIn that the game is developing to PlayStation 5 y Xbox Series X/S (besides for PC, of course). The same profile reaffirms the unofficial information repeated in recent months: it began to be developed in Unreal Engine 4, but it is being migrated to Unreal Engine 5.
Shaikh remembers on his Twitter account that the preproduccin new Bioshock started in September 2017 (again, with information gleaned from studio employees via LinkedIn), although it appears that during that period he changed creative director, as that position has been covered since May 2018. A leak with game titles and tentative release dates of the Nvidia GeForce Now database mentioned that the game will launch in 2022, although this data must be taken with tweezers.
The rumors: open world, two cities and dialogue options
Neither 2K Games nor Cloud Chamber gave any details about the new Bioshock when announcing it, though Kelley Gilmore, study leader, said: “We founded Cloud Chamber to create worlds to discover, as well as the stories they contain, which transgress the boundaries of the possible in the middle of video games. “Since then it has been rumored that being a game of open world with dialog options in which we will explore various cities. Even a title is being considered: Bioshock Isolation.
