Fucking hell we lost mafia for one of the worst IPs of last generation. One of the biggest faces that represented how dumbed down game and level design was last gen. I really thought we were free from Bioshock forever. I'm struggling to put into words how disappointed I am right now.

We have known about this for a while haven't we, not specifically the location but that a new studio was being set up for Bioshock. I hope Ken Levine is at least keeping an eye on the project, I'm both equal parts nervous and excited.

Meh, I'm not really interested in BioShock without Ken Levine, whether it be good or bad. I am still wondering when we'll get a peak at his smaller, new game.

I hope that it's not a BioShock 2 type of new BioShock, and this is coming from someone who actually likes BioShock 2, but right now the BioShock brand isn't in any need of a subpar title.

well, they've hired talent from Arkane and from the old Irrational, so that was a pretty safe bet already. Nice to see it confirmed

Edit: Oh it's developed by Hanger 13? Good to know that the studio is still intact after Mafia 3, hopefully they give BioShock justice. Though I hope that doesn't mean that the Mafia series is dead. Is Hanger 13 big enough to develop two AAAs?

I don’t get the excitement for a new one. After Infinite turned into something completely different from its initial unveils and the original team doesn’t even work on it; I’m not that interested.

The Bioshock franchise is very important because it perfectly bookends the era where reviewers lost their fucking mind.

FINALLY!

I honestly am quite befuddled why 2K didn't follow up Bioshock Infinite much sooner, that was one of the games even my casual friends knew about and it showed because of how well it sold. I almost fear that Bioshock's place in the cultural zeitgeist might have been severely diminished in the years since, without even a hint of a new game.

While the first is still the best, 2 was better than infinite so while Levine is a great visionary and would be preferable I still have faith even without him.

BioShock anad BioShock Infinite is one of my favorite games of last gen.

Can't wait.

Hopes it didn't follow the BioShock 2 path.
Why would you hope it doesn't follow the path of the best Bioshock game?

Wasn't Mafia 3 already a big step down from 2 in terms of mission design and pacing? The location and story seem absolutely amazing but man making most of the side shit mandatory is baffling.
